Bhubaneswar: Dawn of the New Year was not a good start for patients seeking surgery at Capital Hospital in Bhubaneswar as the operation theatre remained closed due to lack of doctors.

Reportedly, four doctors of the hospital were relieved from their duty on December 31, 2018 after promotion to the rank of Joint Director. However, no one has been appointed to fill the vacancies.

Further, the Director of Capital Hospital, Chandrika Prasad Das, also retired on December 31, 2018. The new Director, Ashok Kumar Pattnaik, who assumed office today asked public to keep faith on the hospital staff. He said they will sit together and sort out problems in the hospital.
