Berhampur: The Berhampur Municipal Corporation (BeMC) has become the first civic body in the state to bag the Indian Standard Organization (ISO) certificate for all seven urban primary health centres (UPHC)s. They received the ISO 9001-2015 certification for quality management system (QMS).
The UPHCs are located in Ambapua, Aga Street, Aska Road, Baikuntha Nagara, Goods Shed Road, Khodasingi and Uttaramukhi Sahi. Three of the clinical establishments — in Aska Road, Ambapua and Aga Street — had earlier received the National Quality Assurance Standard (NQAS) certification from the Centre.
“The NQAS certification is in recognition of the highest standards of quality and performance maintained by these institutions. We went for the ISO certification after improving the infrastructure and rendering quality service to the people. The certification is given after auditing of different processes,” BeMC commissioner Chakravarti Singh Rathore said. He added that the ISO certification recognizes the standard maintained by the hospitals. The validity of the ISO certificate is from September 5 this year to September 4, 2022.
“In the coming days, our focus will be on improving the facilities at the UPHCs making them the first choice of treatment for people,” Ganjam collector-cum-administrator of BeMC, Vijay Kulange, said.
“More than 100 patients visit the UPHCs on an average every day. Besides rendering regular services, the hospitals provide treatment for gynaecology, paediatric and dental problems,” Lambodar Digal, assistant programme manager, National Urban Health Mission, said.
