With the purpose of helping the poor, the Hospital Trust decided to give necessary concessions in its health care mission. A patient in the general ward who undergoes surgery in the operation theatre, irrespective of his or her age gets 25% concession in the operation bill. Citizens above 65 years of age is automatically eligible to get half of the consultation charge and full free nursing care in the general ward and half of the nursing care charges in the room. Special considerations are given to many poor patients other than these types of concessions.
