Dubai: A UAE-based health-care group has rebuilt a primary health centre in the Indian state of Kerala, which was ruined in the flash floods in 2018.
Abu Dhabi-headquartered VPS Healthcare has transformed the flood-ravaged primary health centre (PHC) in Vazhakkad, a rural area in Malappuram district, into a premium family health centre (FHC), which, according to Pinarayi Vijayan, the state’s chief minister, is India’s largest. “India’s largest health centre is ready at Vazhakkad, Malappuram. Earlier PHC, destroyed in floods of 2018, is now upgraded into an FHC. Thanks to @drshamsheervp ‘s VPS Healthcare, a 15,000 sq.ft. facility with world class amenities has come up under Rebuild Kerala Initiative,” Vijayan said in a Twitter post on Wednesday.
