The proposed upgradation of the Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH) at a cost of Rs 150 crore would come up on the Madurai Medical College grounds. A high-level committee consisting of Sandeep K Nayak, Central joint secretary for health and Dr C Vamsadhara, director of medical education, Tamil Nadu government stated this after conducting an inspection at the site selected for the new building on Tuesday.

Nayak said construction work for the super speciality hospital would commence in September. Both the Central and state governments have already allocated their share of Rs 125 crore and Rs 25 crore respectively. The final clearance from Prime Minister Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) under which the upgradation is planned, is expected to be obtained by the end of July.

"The architectural plan for the upcoming building has been prepared and kept ready. The construction work for the building would be started from the month of September after obtaining the nod from PMSSY. Once the construction is started it would take 18 months for its completion. Six months after that, the hospital would start functioning," Nayak said.

"The hospital building is coming up on four acres of land. The site has been identified as the Madurai Medical College ground which has 11 acres in total. The hospital would serve the people from southern districts to get super speciality treatment without travelling to Chennai or Bangalore," Dr Vamsadhara, said. Of the allocated Rs 150 crore, Rs 90 crore would be spent on building construction alone. Another Rs 35 crore would be spent on medical equipment and the remaining Rs 15 crore would be spent on other expenses.

Dr N Mohan, dean, Madurai Medical College and GRH said, "Specialities including urology, nephrology, neuro surgery, gastroenterology, medical gastroenterology, surgical gastroenterology and micro surgery would be available in the new building. The required number of doctors, staff nurses and multipurpose hospital employees is being worked out. The required strength would be obtained from the government."

The four-storeyed building will meet the green rating for integrated habitat assessment (GRIHA). Solar panels would be installed on the building to meet the power requirement for hot water and lighting the premises. Three or four star rating is expected from GRIHA, said Srhreekar, an architect who worked on the hospital design. A 300-ft length bridge connecting the existing GRH's extension building near Anna bus stand and the upcoming hospital would also be constructed. The bridge on the second floor would help transporting critical patients to intensive care unit and operation theatre in the new building, he added. ... 112869.cms

A multi-speciality hospital will be established in Madurai at an outlay of about Rs.150 crore to be sanctioned by the Central and State Governments.

The new healthcare institution, which is described as an “upgraded hospital”, is likely to come up at Madurai Medical College Ground in the city.

Sandeep K.Naik, Joint Secretary, Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, on Tuesday held talks with officials of the Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH) here and discussed the infrastructure facilities to be provided in the new hospital.

As the Ministry was looking for a four-acre site, the GRH authorities showed the Madurai Medical College Ground to Mr.Naik in view of its easy accessibility.

The project is expected to take off in two months and construction work will be completed in two years. Mr.Naik said the Centre would have consultations with Chief Minister J.Jayalalithaa in this regard.

Once the new facility is ready, it will function in tandem with the Trauma Care Centre of the GRH which is situated close by. The Joint Secretary had a meeting with the Heads of Departments of various specialities to chalk out a strategy on how to make it highly beneficial to the people of the southern districts.

Madurai GRH annexe finally becomes functional

The hospital has a total of 310 patients admitted to various wards

Almost two years after it was inaugurated, the trauma care wing of Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH) here became fully functional on Monday.

The Rs.29-crore building constructed for accident emergencies, head injuries and casualty cases started operating with the casualty, head injury, neuro trauma and general surgery trauma wards on the occasion of the 66th birthday of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

The trauma care building – also known as GRH annexe – has a total of 420 beds, of which 300 are dedicated to the orthopaedic ward, 60 for neuro trauma and general trauma ward each, said B. Santha Kumar, Dean, GRH.

“The annexe building is designed in such a manner that the X-ray, CT-Scan and central laboratory facilities are situated in close proximity. It will enable the patients to save time in shuttling between the centres for taking various medical tests,” he added.

In January 2012, the new wing began admitting patients, who had undergone surgeries or other similar procedures at the GRH orthopaedics department, for post-operative care.

According to the hospital authorities, the casualty ward and the head injury ward are situated on the ground and first floor of the building.

Operation theatres

There are seven operation theatres in the new facility that will handle emergency and trauma cases, and also cases pertaining to orthopaedics.

Presently, the hospital has a total of 310 patients admitted to various wards.

On the liquefied oxygen plant, the Dean said,

“At present, 20 D-type cylinders are being consumed every day here. The liquefied oxygen plant would soon be installed. Once it is set up, the plant would ensure uninterrupted oxygen supply to various wards.” ... 725205.ece

Due to petty politics and insufficient allotment of funds for equipment it took full 2 years to inaugurate the annexe. These politicians should be punished

Instead of constructing the campus in Austin patti where Rajaji Hospital allotted more than 100 acres for this project JJ's petty politics have delayed the project and ending up in a small area leaving no scope for further expansion in future

Also I am not sure whether really work is going to start r it is just another election stunt

Yes indeed it seems to be an election gimmick just to mine the votes. otherwise why would this regime announce about the Super speciality hospital at this juncture, when election fever is at its peak. Maduraiites will never forgive or forget about this JJ Goverment's dilly dallying techniques , ridden with narrow politics , in identifying , the proposed site for this project.
If at all they play or sport, the medicos too would be deprived of open space. Rather , the site at Austinpatti/ Thoppur would have been ideal and beneficial to Madurai.

^^ This is medical college ground is most crowded during summer vacations ,weekends by school, college students for cricket ,football & I too enjoyed playing there.

My question is
1. Is the conversion of the playground is in accordance with medical college rules . Has students gave go-ahead ? Because recreation is must especially for our future doctors .?

2.Is the govt overconfident of medical tourism in madurai without specifying any policy . ? Are they Considering panagal road from GH to Arvind Hospital stretch as a Healthcare one ,so that SG can spend less funds to build some more cramped buildings in near future ..?

3.The other most important thing is traffic control . I think our long demand of relocating electric poles in Panagal road is still pending .Also city infra specialists stressed that Madurai needs to grow outwardly after city limits . Adding more & more in this high traffic density route will hamper our development in the long run ...

If any of my info is wrong ,friends can correct the same ...

Rajaji hospital has more than 500 acres of land at its disposal in Austin patti. They already run for more than 3 decades few sections such as T.B etc from there. They allotted 100 acres for this AIIMS type hospital. Had it come up there, it would have been good because further expansion possible. Patients from nearby districts can raw without entering Madurai city which is already congested. Because the location was selected by DMK, JJ wanted to spoil the whole plan. End result it is likely to come up in a cramped location.

As our friend has rightly pointed out , Madurai needs to expand outwards in all the four directions and the City Town planners should proceed with permitting buildings with thought and vision about the future. It's a common knowledge that , had plenty of industries, enterprises , manufacturing centres come up here, commensurate with Madurai's stature , then our city city would have grown by leaps and bounds and the city limit itself would have expanded far away. we might have had sprawling suburbs. We may have to catch up atleast now, to make the outskirts of Madurai as growth centres, providing employment to many, generating good revenue to the Government's coffers , bringing prosperity . Remember, the stagnation and inactivity, in growth and development of Madurai is exclusively due to the Government's reluctance and disinterest. We need a catalyst to set forth the action. Let us hope to see in the near future.

The department of physical medicine and rehabilitation would be modernised using the fund."

He further said, "Apart from providing physical exercises we are also helping the patients with artificial limbs. We are manufacturing the artificial limbs in the hospital itself. The team also inspected the manufacturing unit. With the sanctioned funds, much modern equipment for the manufacturing units would be provided. We can manufacture lighter artificial limbs utilising the modern equipment." ... 368662.cms
