Health Department

Health Department, Chandernagore Municipal Corporation(CMC) has been striving to provide promotive, preventive and curative health care facility through a holistic approach, to meet the long standing needs of the community. Our health care facilities are based on a multidisciplinary approach through center based and outreach services. Three Urban Primary Health centers (UPHCs) are functional with state of the art lab and pharmacy to provide diagnostic facilities and treatment: free of cost; in a patient friendly environment. Two of the health care centers have been upgraded to Health and Wellness centers (HWC) with special emphasis on screening of non communicable diseases like Diabetes, Hypertension and Cancer – Oral, Breast and Cervical. Trained nurses (GNM &ANM) also conduct ante-natal checkups (ANC) for pregnant women in the UPHCs on a regular basis.Community outreach services are achieved through Health workers (HHW) and MahilaArogyaSamiti (MAS) by conducting special outreach camps (SORC), Urban health and nutrition day (UHND) and routine immunization sessions (RI) at regular intervals. A cold chain point runs 24x7 at the health department of CMC for proper maintenance of vaccines. This department makes a committed and collective effort to successfully implement all National Health programmes at the community level, like IPPI, NLEP, NTEP, VBDCP just to name a few. Thus, we aspire to achieve a healthy community that is the key to a healthy Nation and will continue to redefine the standards to meet the health care needs of the region and always challenge new heights.
