 A 100-bed yoga and naturopathy hospital will be set up at Dibrugarh to bolster healthcare in the region, Union Ayush minister Sarbananda Sonowal said on Friday.

The minister said this at the ‘Yoga Mahotsav’, celebrated to commemorate 75 days to the International Day of Yoga on 21 June.

Speaking on the occasion, Sonowal said, “…I have the pleasure to announce that the Ministry of Ayush is going to set up a 100 bedded yoga & naturopathy hospital at Dibrugarh. This is going to further bolster Dibrugarh as the centre of healthcare in the region. I am thankful to the chief minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma, for extending full support to this only-of-its-kind centre in the Northeast.”

“This centre will cater to the needs of the region by providing yoga and naturopathy out-patient and inpatient treatments to the people of Assam,” he added.

An MoU was signed between the Moraji Desai National Institute of Yoga (MDNIY) and Dibrugarh University to develop an ecosystem of yoga practitioners which will help make yoga a part of everyone’s healthy lifestyle, the minister said.
