Allahabad High Court Stays UP Government’s Suspension of Sanjay Gandhi Hospital’s License

The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court has issued a stay order on the Uttar Pradesh government’s decision to suspend the license of Sanjay Gandhi Hospital in Amethi. The division bench, comprising Justices Vivek Chaudhary and Manish Kumar, has ruled that the inquiry against the hospital will continue, while also instructing the state government to submit a counter affidavit. This legal action comes in response to a petition filed by the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital administration challenging the government’s order.

License Suspension Follows Tragic Incident

On September 18, the state health department suspended the license of Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, located in the Munshiganj area of Amethi, and temporarily halted its OPD and emergency services. This move came shortly after the unfortunate death of a female patient following a surgical procedure. Sanjay Gandhi Hospital is operated by the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Trust (SGMT), headed by Congress leader Sonia Gandhi. Manoj Muttu, the trust’s administrator, has stated that the court’s order will be submitted to the chief medical officer of Amethi, and the hospital will resume operations according to the CMO’s directions. Ideally, the hospital administration aims to restart services as early as the next day.

Protests and Tragic Incident

The suspension of the hospital’s license sparked outrage, with over 400 hospital employees staging a protest on September 27. Local Congress leaders also joined in, demonstrating outside the office of the Chief Medical Officer (CMO). The tragic incident leading to these events involved a 22-year-old patient named Divya, admitted to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital on September 14. She fell into a coma during surgery, and her family alleged that she was kept at the hospital for over 30 hours before being referred to Lucknow, where she ultimately passed away on September 16.
