Bhubaneswar, Nov 3 (IANS) A private hospital in Orissa Wednesday said it will provide free treatment to road accident victims at incident sites from next month — a service being introduced in the state for the first time.

The “fast responder” service would be launched initially in and around the capital city of Bhubaneswar and later extended to other parts of the state, Bhubaneswar-based Ayush Hospital’s chief executive officer Ashok Acharya told IANS.

The hospital will create teams comprising doctors and para-medics to provide free medical help to accident victims before shifting them to a hospital of their choice, he said.

According to officials, at least 10 people get killed in road accidents every day in the state.
