Dimapur, 02 March, (NEPS): Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio formally handed over on Wednesday State's only Referral Hospital Dimapur to CMC, Vellore and EHA in a "Handing over Ceremony" program held here in the premises of the hospital.

Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said henceforth the Referral Hospital Dimapur would be called as "Christian Institute of Health Science and Research (CIHSR) with the CMC, Vellore and EHA managing its affairs.

Rio recalled how the idea of having the Referral Hospital Dimapur was conceived some two decades back and the project started. However, the cost of the project kept escalating and finally a time came when the State could no further afford to pour in money to the project and the work came to a halt. "It was then felt that it would be best to handover this project to a well qualified renowned agency which could revive and revitalize the project," he said.
