Imphal, June 21 2012: A new diagnostic centre Babina Diagnostics which is claimed to be of world class standard and the biggest in eastern India was inaugurated today at Soibam Leikai, Imphal East by Health and Family Welfare Minister Phungzathang Tonsing.
Babina Diagnostics was set up by the Babina Health Care and Hospitality Industries.
At first, Dr Dhaballi, proprietor of the Babina Diagnostics, set up Babina Clinical Laboratory in a corner of Rupmahal Tank with only four staff about 29 years back.
Then Babina Diagnostic Centre was set up at RIMS Road.
From health care service, Dr Dhaballi diversified his business to hospitality industry by setting up Classic Hotel, the most luxurious hotel in Manipur a few years back.
The whole building inaugurated today is equipped with air conditioners.
