The primary function of a hospital is the provision of medical care to a community. A hospital has two important roles to fulfill to be a center for the education of all types of health workers-doctors, nurses, midwives and technicians – and for the health education of the public. It is essential that hospital and health services be planned on a wide area basis; planning on an individual or local community basis creates gaps and overlapping. The idea of regionalization is the placing under unified, general, administration control the hospitals and health services of a wide area, containing a population of upto several million people. In this way the provision of hospital services can be related with reasonable accuracy to the population they are intended to serve, gaps and overlapping can be avoided, and new hospitals can be sited in the most strategically suitable positions with regard to population density and means of communication. The Directorates are headed by specialists and are concerned with the supervision, coordination and execution of the policies framed by the Government. The Health Services in the State may be classified into 3 major categories namely Medical Education, Medical Services and Public Health. All the Directors function under the authority of the Department of Health Services and Family Welfare
