Since these tests require high-end equipment that are not only expensive but also need trained manpower, these facilities are mostly limited to multi-specialty hospitals.
The Cantonment Board Hospital in Belagavi has introduced several pathology tests at affordable costs thanks to the CSR initiative of the Jaybharat Foundation Belagavi.
For instance, some tests are needed to be carried out at regular intervals for which people need to depend on private hospitals or labs but now such tests can be done at the centrally located Cantonment Hospital itself on the Head Post Office road Camp.
Speaking on the occasion of the inauguration, Shri. Jayant Humbarwadi chief guest and President, Jaybharat Foundation, Belagavi said diagnosis is the key in any treatment and many dont get the various tests done due to the costs. Here affordable tests would make diagnosis easy and cheaper and inturn better and timely treatment to the patient.
Barchaswa Chief Executive Officer Cantonment Board, Belagavi said The setting of modern equipment’s in the Pathology Department of the Cantonment Hospital is a step ahead in providing medical facilities at an affordable rate to the needy people. I sincerely thanks Shri Jayant Humbarbari for donating the equipment’s in the larger interest of masses.
The Patholgy lab is now equipped with Complete Cell Counter, Digital Centrifuge Machine, Binoculars Microscope, Elisa Reader, Elisa Washer, electrolyte analyser
