The Aravind Eye Hospital at Anna Nagar, Madurai is really a gem of our Madurai.We Maduraiites can genuinely be proud of this great institution, which renders noble service to the society at an affordable fee or even free of charge. This hospital has been and is still doing humane , remarkable service for patients needy of eye care. The hard work,meticulousness , foresighted vision and mission of Dr. Venkatasamy, who established this institution is immensely admirable. Getting treated here is a pleasurable experience. Recently my father aged 74 yrs underwent a surgery for cataract and the treatment and care they provided was very nice , comforting and heartening . i witnessed people arriving from the farthest corners of our country and even from foreign lands, with an unshakable faith in this hospital for getting treatment. Affirming their faith , the hospital staff are extremely kind, sympathetic , patient and render excellent medical service. Not only that, they were on a glorious and avowed mission to eradicate the" needless blindness " amongst the world population and especially within India. It is humbly and earnestly appealed to the forumers , my fellow Maduraiites to please register their names for Voluntary Eye Donation with the Aravind Eye Hospital but to also create awareness about this lofty cause , serving the needy persons. Thank you one :thumbup: and all.

^^ The Aravind eye care are pioneers in Cataract surgery and it is a classic Harvard Business Review case study.

They are now establishing a 700 bedded hospital in Chennai and they also have plans to set up hospitals in Africa to extend their footprint to that continent by entering into JVs with hospitals there where medical facilities are really very pathetic.

ரூ.45 கோடியில் உயர்நிலை புற்றுநோய் சிறப்பு சிகிச்சை மையம்

மதுரை அரசு மருத்துவக் கல்லூரியில் தென் மாநில அளவில் ரூ.45 கோடியில் உயர்நிலை புற்றுநோய் சிகிச்சை மையம் (டிசிசி) அமைக்கப்படவுள்ளது.

தமிழகத்தில் தொற்றாநோய் சிகிச்சை திட்டம் கடந்த இரு ஆண்டுகளாகச் செயல்படுத்தப்பட்டு வருகிறது. இதில் சர்க்கரை, இதயம், புற்றுநோய் சிகிச்சைக்கு முதலிடம் அளிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. இச் சிகிச்சைக்கு என அரசு மருத்துவமனைகளில் தனி பிரிவும் செயல்படுத்தப்பட்டுள்ளது.

மதுரை அரசு ராஜாஜி மருத்துவமனையில் புற்றுநோய்க்கு அறுவைச் சிகிச்சைப் பிரிவு, பொது மருத்துவப் பிரிவு, கதிரியக்கப் பிரிவு ஆகியவை செயல்பட்டுவருகின்றன. இதில் சிகிச்சை பெற ஆண்டுக்கு சுமார் 75 ஆயிரம் பேர் வருகின்றனர். இதையடுத்து, கடந்த 2012-ல் தமிழக அரசு தென்மண்டல புற்றுநோய் ஆராய்ச்சி மையத்தை மதுரையில் அமைக்க ரூ.15 கோடி நிதி அளித்தது. மையத்தை சுமார் 2 ஏக்கர் பரப்பளவில் மருத்துவக் கல்லூரி மைதானம், ஆஸ்டின்பட்டியில் அமைக்க திட்டமிடப்பட்டது. ஆனால், பாலரெங்காபுரம் மகப்பேறு மருத்துவமனை வளாகத்தில் அமைக்க முடிவாகியுள்ளது.

மக்கள் நெருக்கமுள்ள, மகப்பேறு மருத்துவமனை, அதிக பள்ளிக்கூடங்கள் மற்றும் போக்குவரத்து வசதியற்ற நிலையில் உள்ள பாலரெங்காபுரத்தில் புற்றுநோய் சிகிச்சை மண்டல ஆராய்ச்சி மையம் அமைத்தால் அது நோயாளிகளுக்கு முழு பயனளிக்குமா அப் பகுதியினருக்கு கதிர்வீச்சு அபாயம் எழாதா என்ற கேள்விகளும் தற்போது எழுந்துள்ளன.

இந் நிலையில், தொற்றாநோய் சிகிச்சை சிறப்புத் திட்டத்தில் நாட்டில் 50 இடங்களில் புற்றுநோய் உயர்நிலை சிகிச்சை மையத்தை மருத்துவக் கல்லூரிகளுடன் இணைத்து அமைக்க தலா ரூ.45 கோடி நிதி அளிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. தென் மாநில அளவில் தமிழகத்தில் திருச்சியில் அமைக்க அதிகாரிகள் திட்டமிட்டனர். ஆனால், தமிழக அரசு மதுரையில் அமைக்கப் பரிந்துரைத்துள்ளது. ஆகவே, மதுரையில் ஏற்கெனவே ரூ.150 கோடியில் அமையவுள்ள சூப்பர் ஸ்பெஷாலிட்டி மருத்துவமனை அருகே ரூ.45 கோடியிலான புற்றுநோய் உயர்நிலைச் சிகிச்சை மையம் அமைக்க ஆலோசிக்கப்படுகிறது. அதில் தற்போதைய சிகிச்சைகளுடன் சேர்த்து வலி நிவாரணம், புற்றுநோய் பாதிப்பு நோய்க்கூறியல், சிறப்பு நுண்கதிர் சிகிச்சை ஆகிய பிரிவுக்கான நவீன சாதனங்களும் அமைக்கப்படும்.

தற்போதைய வார்டு இடமாற்றம்: அரசு மருத்துவமனையில் தீக்காயப் பிரிவு அருகேயிருந்த புற்றுநோய் சிகிச்சை வார்டானது, முதல்வர் காப்பீட்டுத் திட்ட 500 வார்டு பகுதியில் (செவிலியர் விடுதி அருகே) பிரிவுக்கு இடமாற்றப்பட்டுள்ளது. மருத்துவமனை டீன் டாக்டர் பி.சாந்தகுமாரின் இந் நடவடிக்கையை மருத்துவர்கள் வரவேற்றுள்ளனர்.

தமிழக அரசு தற்போது மதுரையில் சிறப்பு மருத்துவத் திட்டஙகளைச் செயல்படுத்திட கவனம் செலுத்திவருகிறது. இந்த நிலையில், அத் திட்டங்கள் முறையாக ஏழை எளியவர்களைச் சென்றடைய சம்பந்தப்பட்ட துறை அதிகாரிகள் உரிய இடத்தில் மருத்துவப் பிரிவு கட்டடங்களை அமைக்க நடவடிக்கை எடுத்தால் நல்லது என்பதே மக்கள் கோரிக்கை.

Madurai on the verge of becoming a medical hub

The city has immense scope to become a medical hub of the state, said medical authorities here. Upcoming medical projects and geographical advantage may play significant roles in this regard. Improving medical facilities in the government sector can turn the temple city into a medical tourist destination, opined health experts here. The poor and the middle-class stand to gain from the growth in medical infrastructure as private investment is not spurring this development.

Major medical facilities planned in the city include tertiary cancer centre and one more regional cancer centre (RCC). A reproductive and child health (RCH) centre of excellence will come up on the premises of the Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH). It will be jointly developed by the state and the central governments. Construction of a super speciality hospital has already started with Rs 150 crore investment. While Rs 90 crore would be spent only on building construction, another Rs 35 crore is earmarked for medical equipment.

Talking about upcoming medical projects B Santhakumar, dean of Madurai Medical College and GRH, said the tertiary cancer centre costing Rs 45 crore has been approved. It would come up shortly. The RCC will be developed on the premises of Balarangapuram Government Hospital with an initial investment of Rs 15 crore. The fund for the reproductive and child health (RCH) centre of excellence too has been allocated. This Rs 51.22 crore project too is expected to start functioning shortly. The work on the Rs 150 crore super speciality hospital on GRH premises has already started, he said.

On Madurai's chances of turning into a medical hub, Dr K Senthil, state president of the Tamil Nadu Government Doctors Association, said Madurai has locational advantages. "Madurai is getting its due, though Chennai has ample medical facilities in the government sector. The city should be the ultimate medical destination for the entire districts in the southern part of the state. Unlike Coimbatore and Chennai, Madurai is located is in the middle of the state and can possibly serve more patients from the state," he said.

Medical tourism is yet to pick up here though the city already has good medical facilities. Poor air connectivity is a dampener in Madurai city's growth as a medical tourism destination. However, the possibility of Madurai making a mark in the medical tourism sector is very much on the cards, Dr Senthil observed.

Let us hope atleast in next five years whatever they talked about comes up.

“With better international air link, it will attract more patients”

When Abubakar Ibrahim was advised by doctors in Nigeria to undergo corneal transplantation, he chose a private eye hospital in Madurai for the surgery.

“There are no eye banks in Nigeria. A doctor of Indian origin suggested that we visit Madurai for treatment. The treatment in the city is excellent and the cost low,” says his uncle Yahaya Haruna. With foreigners and patients from other States preferring the city for its cost-effective treatment and affable doctors, Madurai is slowly emerging as a centre for medical tourism.

Anish George and his wife were in the city recently to get treatment for their school-going son Alan George at Aravind Eye Hospital. “We were not satisfied with the treatment in Kerala. A neighbour advised us to visit Madurai. We’ve visited the city four times already,” says Mr. George.

The city’s rich heritage sites are an added advantage for the patients and those who accompany them. “We are planning to tour the city before returning to Nigeria. We have heard so much about Madurai,” Mr. Haruna says. Mr. George says he could not explore the city during his previous visits but plans to go around the city during his next trip.

Major health providers in the city indicate that Madurai will emerge as a medical centre with better air connectivity to destinations abroad. Pugalagiri Vadamalayan of Vadamalayan Hospital says around 150 patients from foreign countries visit his hospital every year. “Coimbatore is faring much better than Madurai because of better air connectivity. Madurai will have an edge compared to other cities because it has several heritage sites to visit,” he says.

S. Gurushankar of Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Centre says medical care in Madurai is cheaper when compared to Chennai and other cities. “The city’s potential has not been tapped owing to poor international air connectivity. But it is only a matter of years before Madurai will emerge as a medical centre,” he says.

The health providers say despite the poor air link to Madurai, the number of international patients visiting the city is on the rise. According to Rohini Sridhar, Chief Operating Officer of Apollo Hospitals, the number of international patients visiting the hospital has been witnessing an increase of 20 per cent every year. “We provide medical care for around 400 to 500 people from European countries, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and the Middle East in a year,” she says.

Hema Sathish of Devadoss Hospital says the number of patients visiting Madurai hospitals will increase if the air connectivity is improved. “But we had patients from foreign counties visiting us even when Madurai was not served by international flights,” she says.

Rs 150 crore multi-specialty hospital taking shape

The much-awaited construction of the super-speciality hospital here has begun and is carried out in full swing. The first-of-its-kind hospital from the government sector in the entire state except Chennai is being constructed at a cost of Rs 150 crore. The hospital is constructed right in front of the annexe building of Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH) adjacent to the Anna Bus Terminal. The work has been expedited following the recent visit of J Radhakrishnan, state health secretary. GRH authorities, under whose supervision the entire process is taking place, said that it would take one-and-a-half years to complete it.

According to the authorities, the Madurai Medical College ground, where the hospital is coming up is the right place as they are planning to connect the upcoming four-storied building with GRH annexe building. There would be a slanting corridor-like structure connecting the two buildings crossing the busy Panagal Road. It would make things easy, said an authority from the hospital.

K Nayak, central joint secretary for health who visited the area some months ago said both the central and state governments have already allocated their share amounts of Rs 125 crore and Rs 25 crore respectively. During his recent visit, Radhakrishnan said that medical equipment for the upcoming hospital would be purchased for Rs 50 crore. They have already initiated the process, he said. According to the medical community it is one of the biggest purchases of medical equipment in the state.

Hospital authorities said that specialities including urology, nephrology, neurosurgery, gastroenterology, medical gastroenterology, surgical gastroenterology and microsurgery would be available in the new building. Although the facilities are already available in the GRH the new facilities would be up to date. Moreover, it would be spacious to accommodate more number of patients, where they can get specialty care, said Dr S Vadivel Murugan, medical superintendent of GRH.

To a query on the number of bed at the hospital, he said, "I am not sure about the number of bed strength in the upcoming centre. The state government will soon announce the number of staff nurses and doctors required for the hospital."

Shreekar, an architect who accompanied K Nayak during the visit said the four-storied building will meet the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA). They expect three or four-star rating for the building. Solar panels would also be installed in the building to meet the power requirement especially for hot water and premises lighting, he added

If the hospital is under the control of state govt, it will end up in another extension wing of Rajaji hospital and not a super speciality hospital. State govt wont allot enough funds and required manpower. They had done the same for the Old Anna Bus stand extension wing and it will happen here also

Speciality care centre at Government Rajaji Hospital in one year


The groundbreaking ceremony for the upcoming Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) Centre of Excellence took place on Wednesday. The centre would be the first-of-its-kind speciality care for infants and mothers' post delivery. Hospital authorities said that the 600-bedded centre funded by the central government would be completed in a year's time. It is coming up inside the Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH) near the casualty ward. According to the authorities a sum of Rs 40 crore has been allotted for the building construction, while Rs 6 crore would be spent for the hostel building. A sum of Rs 4.72 crore for furniture and medical equipment for the centre and a separate Rs 50 lakh would be spent on furniture for hostel.

At present, the obstetrics and gynaecology ward in GRH which takes care of infants and post maternal complications has around 250 beds. The upcoming centre six-storied building would provide specialized treatment.

"Sophisticated modern equipment are going to be installed in the new centre. Many tertiary cases are referred to the GRH from neighbouring districts. It would help save more lives. More doctors and staff nurses required for the new centre would be appointed by the state government. The number would be determined soon," said Dr S Vadivel Murgan, medical superintendent, GRH.

Sources from the GRH say that 30 deliveries are conducted in the hospital on an average in a day. More and more tertiary cases are referred to GRH from at least seven districts around Madurai including Sivaganga, Virudhunagar, Ramanathapuram, Theni and Dindigul as advanced treatment are provided by experienced doctors. A total of 14 doctors from various specialities and around 20 nurses would be recruited, sources said.

B Santhakumar, dean, Madurai Medical College and GRH recently said the centre would have high level of protection. A compound wall would be constructed around the centre to prevent any child lifting incidents, he said.

State asked to identify land for AIIMS-like institution

It may be hard to find 150-200 acres in Chennai, feels official

The Union Health Ministry has written to the State Government to identify about 150-200 acres of land to establish in Tamil Nadu an institution similar to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

A letter proposing AIIMS-type institutions in all States was sent out by the Centre recently, sources in the Health Department said.

Confirming the receipt of the letter, a department official said though Chennai may be the first choice to set up an institution like the AIIMS, it may be hard to find space.

Jayalalithaa urges Modi to set up AIIMS in Tamil Nadu in current financial year


CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to set up an AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) in the state in the current financial year itself.

The Modi government has announced setting up of an AIIMS in all states in a phased manner. Thanking the Prime Minister for the initiative, Jayalalithaa urged him to set up an AIIMS in the state in the first phase itself.

The chief minister said she had received a letter from the Union health minister requesting the state government to identify three or four suitable alternate locations for setting up of a new AIIMS in the state.

She said the state had already identified the required land in various places. "As required by the Government of India, the state has already identified the required extent of land at Chengalpattu in Kancheepuram district, Pudukkottai town in Pudukottai district, Sengipatti in Thanjavur district, Perundurai in Erode district and Thoppur in Madurai district where lands with suitable road connectivity are already in the possession of the state government and its agencies," she said in a letter to Modi.

Sufficient water and electricity are also available in all the five places, which also have excellent rail and air connectivity. "I have already directed the state government officials concerned to provide all the details required by the Government of India," she said.

Tamil Nadu has a proud record of speedy implementation of such projects. "I request you to kindly ensure that Tamil Nadu is included on the list of states in which an AIIMS would be set up during the current financial year itself," Jayalalithaa said.

Jayalalithaa said she was very keen to ensure that an institution of the stature of AIIMS was established in Tamil Nadu, as it would substantially augment the facilities in the state for providing quality medical education and also make available high-end tertiary level healthcare in the public sector to benefit the poor and middle classes.

அரசு மருத்துவமனையில் கழிவுநீர் வாய்க்கால்கள் ரூ.50 லட்சத்தில் சீரமைப்பு: டீன் தகவல்

மதுரை அரசு ராஜாஜி மருத்துவமனையில் கழிவுநீர் வாய்க்கால்கள் ரூ.50 லட்சத்தில் சீரமைக்கப்படவுள்ளன என மருத்துவமனை டீன் டாக்டர் பி.சாந்தகுமார் கூறினார்.

அரசு மருத்துவமனையில் கடந்த 3 நாள்களாக தண்ணீர் பற்றாக்குறையால் நோயாளிகள் அவதிக்குள்ளாகினர். தினமும் மாநகராட்சி இணைப்பு மூலம் 4 லட்சம் லிட்டர்

நீர் கிடைத்துவந்தது. அந்த நீர் கடந்த சனி முதல் வழங்கப்படவில்லை. இதனால் அறுவைச் சிகிச்சைகளும் பாதிக்கப்பட்டதாகப் புகார்கள் எழுந்தன.

செவ்வாய்க்கிழமை காலையிலும் மருத்துவமனைக்கு போதிய தண்ணீர் கிடைக்கவில்லை. மாநகராட்சி நிர்வாகமும் லாரிகள் மூலம் தண்ணீர் விநியோகிக்க முன்வரவில்லை. மருத்துவமனை நிர்வாகத்தின் நீண்ட நேரப் போராட்டத்துக்குப் பிறகே 6 லாரிகளில் தண்ணீர் விநியோகம் நடந்தது.

இப்பிரச்னை குறித்து மருத்துவமனை டீன் டாக்டர் பி.சாந்தகுமாரிடம் கேட்டபோது அவர் கூறியது: மாநகராட்சி தண்ணீர் விநியோகிக்கும் குழாயில் ஏற்பட்ட பழுதால் தண்ணீர் விநியோகம் பாதிக்கப்பட்டது. ஆனால், லாரிகள் மூலம் மாநகராட்சி சார்பில் தண்ணீர் வழங்கியதால் அறுவைச் சிகிச்சைகள் நடைபெற்றுள்ளன.

அரசு மருத்துவமனையில் தற்போது கழிவு நீர் செல்லும் குழாய்கள் குறுகியதாக உள்ளன. இதனால் கழிவுநீர் செல்வதில் அவ்வப்போது தேக்கம் ஏற்படுகிறது. இதையடுத்து ரூ.50 லட்சம் செலவில் அகலமான கழிவுநீர்க் குழாய்கள் அமைக்கத் திட்டமிடப்பட்டுள்ளது.

மருத்துவமனை வளாகம் முழுவதும் டைல்ஸ் கற்கள் பதிக்கப்படவுள்ளன. பிரசவ சிகிச்சைப் பிரிவின் முன்பகுதியில் வாகனம் நிறுத்தத் தடை விதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. அங்கு நோயாளிகளின் உறவினர்களுக்காக கூரை செட் அமைக்கவும் திட்டமிடப்பட்டுள்ளது என்றார்.

பிரசவ சிகிச்சைப் பிரிவுக்கு முன்பு நிறுத்திய வாகனங்கள் பனகல்சாலை ஓரம் நிறுத்தப்பட்டதை மக்கள் வரவேற்றுள்ளனர். சாலையோர பிளாட்பாரத்தில் வாகன நிறுத்தத்தை மாநகராட்சி ஏற்படுத்தவேண்டும் எனவும் கோரிக்கை எழுந்துள்ளது
