The health center built for the population of about thirty thousand around Serene is lying closed. People also met the Chief Medical Officer to get it operated again but no action was taken.

In the year 1971, the primary health center of Sareni was built by the former Prime Minister Late. It was done during the tenure of Indira Gandhi. This hospital, made with the aim of making health services accessible in rural areas, is now struggling for its existence. Crores of rupees were spent in the construction of this health center built on the land of Lakhnapur Grampanchayat. In the year 2012, it was decided to upgrade it to make it a Community Health Center.

But due to lack of space, a community health center was constructed at Govindpur, about four kilometers away. The staff here was shifted to CHC in the year 2013. Since then it has been locked. Local citizens met the Chief Medical Officer in the year 2019 under the leadership of Congress leader Sundar Singh and demanded that some services of first aid be restored in it.

There is a demand of the local people that at least first aid should be arranged in this hospital. The Chief Medical Officer had also assured everyone of posting a doctor there and providing some medicines. After that this arrangement continued for six months. But after that it is locked again.

Villagers have urged the Chief Minister to restore first aid facilities in this building built at a cost of crores of rupees so that the people of Sereni and nearby villages do not have to wander here and there for treatment. In this regard, CMO Dr Virendra Singh says that action will be taken after summoning a report from the local medical officer regarding the closed PHC.
