The Maharashtra government has given its approval to set up a trauma care center in Wagholi. The state government accepted the request on June 28, 2023.
The trauma care center in Wagholi will play a crucial role in providing critical emergency care to accident victims during their most vulnerable moments. A government resolution (GR) has been issued to allocate a land parcel in Wagholi for the purpose of setting up the center.
The proposal aims to cater to accident victims on the Pune-Ahmednagar state highway, who previously had to be transferred to Sassoon General Hospital, Aundh District Hospital, or a private hospital in case of emergencies. The establishment of the trauma center in Wagholi will significantly reduce the time required for treatment and has the potential to save lives.
A 3-acre plot of land belonging to the zilla parishad has already been identified for the trauma center. Once the ownership of the site is transferred to the health department, the center will become operational. The location of Wagholi has been chosen for opening the trauma center due to its proximity to the highway and the demand expressed by the local community.
The establishment of this trauma care center underscores the Maharashtra government’s commitment to providing accessible and timely healthcare services, particularly for accident victims. The center will serve as a critical lifeline, offering immediate and specialized care to those in need, ultimately contributing to the overall improvement of healthcare infrastructure in the region.
