The PMO noted that it has been Modi’s constant endeavour to improve medical infrastructure and provide top class medical facilities across the country. In line with this vision, the super-speciality block at the Goa Medical College and Hospital has been constructed at a cost of over Rs 380 crore under the ‘Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana’ scheme, it said.
