Hospitals in GanjamToday Ganjam has pretty decent number of hospitals. Although one may argue that existing numbers of hospital are way to less to for city like Ganjam, but the situations are going to be improved any time sooner. And amongst them the most renowned hospital is Govt owned MKCG College and Hospital (Maharaja Krishna Chandra Gajapati Medical College & Hospital). Located in Brahmapur town, this is the most sophisticated and advanced hospital of Ganjam District.
Besides MKCG, City Hospital and Sri Ram Medical & Research hospital are also equally popular hospitals in Ganjam. They too are both located in Brahmapur town. Moreover state government has also set up Community Health Center and Primary Health Centers in many remote villages of the district. These centers are like glimmer of hope for village people, who have no access to advanced hospitals and clinics.

Just as during last one decade number of hospitals in Ganjam has grown, so has number of clinics. Most of these clinics though are located in Brahmapur and Chatrapur – two most developed towns of Ganjam District. As for people living in remote villages, they are completely dependent on Community Health Centers and Primary Health Centers for their healthcare needs. It is also equally pertinent to mention that today Ganjam also has specialist doctors like Cardiologists, Ophthalmologists, Dentists, ENT doctors etc. Today these specialist doctors mostly serve in well known hospitals of the district.
Chemist Shops in GanjamPresence of chemist shops is very obvious in any place wherever there are hordes of hospitals and clinics. Ganjam too is no exception at all to this common phenomenon. Today there are hordes of them all throughout Ganjam, most of them located in developed areas like Brahmapur, Chatrapur, Aska and Old Ganjam. In village areas too number of chemist shops has certainly gone up during last few years.

Important emergency services like ambulances and blood banks are indeed available in Ganjam. There are currently only 40 to 50 ambulances serving in entire district, which is way to less for a big district like Ganjam. And in the case of blood banks the number is down to mere 2. A district that boosts population of more than 8 lakhs surely needs more than 2 blood banks. One of these 2 blood banks is located in MKCG College and Hospital.
