Omar re-affirmed his government's determination to provide better health facilities in far-flung and remote villages in the state.
"Under a comprehensive and gigantic health consolidation and expansion programme, scores of health centres in the villages, sub-districts and districts have been completed and many are in the process of completion," Omar said.
Besides modernizing the health institutions, a mega expansion programme is in the offing to ensure health coverage and better medicare facilities to the people across the state, he said.
The Chief Minister also inaugurated a Rs 11.83 crore 70-bed district hospital at Samba on Friday.

"Coming up with modern health facilities in the district would not only expand the orbit of health coverage for people but reduce the pressure on the hospitals in cities," he said.
