Fortis Malar's second hospital to be ready by Sept

Chennai, Jan. 27:

Fortis Malar's second hospital in Chennai will be ready by September/October this year.

About Rs 200 crore-225 crore is said to have been invested on this 250-bed hospital, according to sources close to the development.

Fortis Malar group has taken Kochar Towers on Arcot Road, Vadapalani on long lease.

The commercial building is being converted into a multi-speciality hospital spanning 1.5 lakh square feet.

Malar's other hospital in the city – a 250-bed centre – operates in Adyar.

In 2007, the Fortis Group acquired Malar Hospitals for Rs 26 crore. The group also has a presence in Puducherry through the 100-bed East Coast hospital which Fortis Malar operates and manages.

Fortis' acquisition of Malar came along with a Rs 20-crore debt. Malar wiped out all its accumulated losses in the second quarter of this year and is ready to expand.

Fortis Malar plans to expand in Tamil Nadu with hospitals in Madurai, Coimbatore and Tiruchi – these will be a combination of Greenfield projects and acquisitions.

Fortis Malar clocked a turnover of Rs 85 crore last year; this year it expects to finish at Rs 110 crore.

Harvard-Tiruchi project to arrest cervical cancer

Image

It is no secret that cervical cancer is among the leading cancers among women in India. An initiative undertaken by the non-profit Hindu Mission Hospital here and researchers from Harvard Medical School aims at nipping cervical cancer in the bud through a self-sustaining screening programme targeting women in rural Tamil Nadu.

Sexually transmitted infection of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the cause for more than 90 per cent of cervical cancer cases. Yet HPV infection is not always cancerous as only persistent infection in some women leads to cancer, says Rajan Dewar, hematopathologist, Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre, U.S.A, principal investigator, for the project. One of the important feature of the ‘Harvard Project' is the introduction of HPV testing, a rarity here, due to lack of trained experts and expenses incurred. By identifying HPV infection in high-risk women above 30 years and suggesting intervention, the project envisages reducing cancer-related deaths.

One step ahead- multiple screening

The project with its base in Tiruchi would cover Salem, Erode and Karur, some of the districts with high incidence of cervical cancer next to Chennai. The project would move a step ahead of the existing cancer screening government initiative by employing multiple screening techniques.

While the government project uses a simple cost-effective method- Visual Inspection method with Ascetic Acid (VIA), the Harvard project employs two additional techniques as VIA though non-expensive, is subjective, said Dewar.

Cytology or pap smear tests would be done through ‘thin prep smears' with computer-aided diagnostics that can be read by experts in America. “The pap smear test has been responsible for reducing cervical cancer drastically in the West, but is not popular in India as many slides are rejected due to inflammation and there are few trained cytologists,” says Dewar.

Risk and affordability

The screening technique used will be based on stratification of risk and affordability, though high risk women from low income groups will have access to subsidised advanced screening.

In a consultative meeting with top gynaecologists from the city involved in the project, networking with self-help groups and identifying eligible women in age bracket of 30- 59 from primary health care centres were suggested.

Cultural barrier

V.Subramaniam, secretary, Hindu Mission Hospital, was confident of the community outreach programme as the hospital regularly conducts camps in villages. Admitting that it may be difficult to screen women for cervical cancer due to prevailing stigma, he said awareness programmes would be initiated to break through the cultural barrier.

“A pap smear should be done soon after first sexual encounter and it is advised once in every three years to rule out infection. Detecting HPV infection is key to detecting cancer at pre-malignant stage. High-risk population for cervical cancer includes women married at very early age and those with history of multiple sexual partners,” according to Ramani Devi, Secretary, TRIOGS.

“Personal hygiene is a contributing factor for cervical cancer and a reason why it is seen among lower socio-economic groups here.”

“True, there is the vaccine for cervical cancer but this will largely benefit the next generation. What about thousands of women of the present generation whose deaths are preventable?” says Dr.Dewar. The project is funded by Hologic foundation and Jiv Daya foundation.

Several hospitals in Trichy new to fire safety norms

Most of the 133 hospitals in Trichy are new to the idea of having fire safety regulations, according to district fire officer, Illangovan.

Talking to TOI, Illangovan said that 50% of the hospitals in Trichy complied with the fire safety regulations only after he sent show cause notices since he took over in July, 2010. Some of these safety regulations are part of the building norms that must have been physically built into the construction model of the hospitals, particularly in those which came into existence after February 28, 1999.

A high court order clearly specified that if the buildings constructed after February 28, 1999 violated the norms of floor space index ( FSI), plot coverage, car parking and fire safety measures, they should be demolished.

Many a time, the Trichy fire service office remained a silent spectator excepting when fighting-fire with their limited resources. Most glaring example of the violation is in front of the Kaveri Medical Hospital (KMC) at Thennur, which is situated on the narrow K C Road. To add to the danger, an electricity transformer is installed in front of the narrow road.

V Selvam, general manager of KMC hospital admitted that "space constraint is there." As for getting the fire licence, Selvam said the hospital was in the process (of getting it). However, he hastened to add that the 225-bed multi-speciality hospital was bifurcated into the bigger A-Block, B-Block and Sivakannu Block, the last housing the 25-bed Oncology division. Interestingly, Selvam said that B-Block, which was constructed first was opened in February, 1999 and subsequently the A-Block was inaugurated in 2001. "But, we are proactive when it comes fire-fighting," Selvam added.

"For the first time we are now conducting a survey to find out how many buildings have violated the norms, especially fire safety," said Illangovan.

Illangovan said that there were around 200 factories, the same number of marriage halls, 50 lodges, and 100 restaurants in his jurisdiction and 90% of them collectively did not bother to comply with any of the safety norms.

"Most of the violations were noticed in restaurants where they dealt with fire all the time and repeated instructions from the fire department to the corporation to consult the former before issuing any sort of licenses always fell on deaf ears," said Illangovan. To add insult to injury, of the total sanctioned strength of 194 fire personnel, 41 remained vacant to this date, he added.

Illangovan said a wet riser (in-built) system through which 1680 litres of pressurised water would flow per minute should be connected to the entire floor and it should be operated by both electric and diesel pumps. Another important feature is the automatic fire alarm and detective system, aka sprinkler system which would automatically fight fire while simultaneously raising an alarm, a system that is alien to Trichy.

The norms of having a fire extinguisher on every floor, 30 feet hose reels for every 1000 sq ft space and an overhead tank with 20,000 litre capacity would be meaningless if there was a mandatory seven metre 'set back', around the hospital premises.

Diet trolley for government hospital

Patients at the Annal Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital may soon get their daily rations served on a hygienic platter, thanks to a new diet trolley donated to the hospital here on Friday.

The Rs.35,000-worth food trolley was donated by the Rotary Club of Tiruchi Fort. The contribution was made by the Club under its community service project, after suggestion from hospital authorities.

Not all patients opted for food provided by the hospital, citing the old iron rusted trolley as one of the primary reasons, said S.Swaminathan, president, Rotary Club of Tiruchi Fort.

Efficient

The stainless steel trolley with four storage components would make food distribution efficient at meal times he added.

Shanjay, secretary, Rotary Club of Tiruchi Fort, D.P.Balaji and N.Mohan, project coordinators and A.Kumaran, project head handed over the trolley to A. Karthikeyan, Dean, K.A.P.Viswanatham College. M.A.Aleem, Vice-Principal and T. Mohanasundaram, Joint Director, Health Services were present.

Non-surgical treatment for liver failure in city hospital

A non-surgical procedure involving a stent implant was performed successfully in a patient with alcohol-induced liver failure at a city hospital here.

The procedure TIPSS (transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt) was performed recently on a 47-year-old patient from Lalgudi at Dr.G.Viswanathan Speciality Hospitals here. Sheik, an employee at a readymade store had been suffering from recurrent blood vomiting and fluid accommodation in the abdomen for more than a year.

Liver failure had set in due to cirrhosis induced by Budd-Chiari syndrome, a condition where an obstruction occurs in the hepatic vein that carries blood away from the liver.

In a procedure that took six hours, a team of specialists form the hospital established link between portal and hepatic vein in the liver through an eight centimetre stent. The stent was implanted after a guide wire was introduced through the jugular vein in the neck to dilate the liver through ballooning. The treatment was carried out under the guidance of fluoroscopy that provides real-time imaging of interior organs.

Dr.K.Govindaraj, Department of Gastroenterology and Minimally Invasive Surgery, heading the team said the patient was monitored for three days subsequent to the procedure on Tuesday after which the success of procedure was determined.

The team of doctors included Dr.Ravi, Head of the Department of Intervention Radiology, Dr.Murali, Dr.Thanaraj Periasamy, Dr.Venkatesh, Dr. Raja and Dr. Selvakumaran. The treatment is not a permanent but a stop-gap solution before an actual liver transplant and can prolong life by five years instead of death by severe bleeding. Patient would be advised medication to prevent stent from clogging. The cost of the treatment is estimated around Rs.1.5 to 2 lakh.

Radiotherapy unit at Tiruchi GH

Cancer patients in and around Tiruchi will soon have access to subsidised radiation treatment with a proposed radiotherapy unit to come up at the Annal Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital here.

A radiotherapy unit at the cost of Rs.6 crore housing a Linear Accelerator (LINAC) for external beam radiation treatment has been commissioned by the health department, A.Karthikeyan, Dean, K.A.P.Viswanathan Government Medical College, told The Hindu . The LINAC machine produces high energy X-rays that can be targeted at the region of tumour to destroy cancer cells while sparing or minimising damage to surrounding normal tissue.

The site for the unit has been identified near the erstwhile office of the District Medical Officer, M.A.Aleem, Vice-Principal, K.A.P.Viswanatham Medical College said. Construction would begin subsequent to inspection and issue of no-objection certificate by authorities from the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, the regulatory agency for atomic energy in India. Two qualified radiation therapists are already available at the hospital and more would be posted if the need arises.

The radiotherapy unit would benefit poor patients as only medical therapy was administered at the medical college hospital. Hitherto, cancer patients requiring advanced treatment were referred to government medical college hospitals in Thanjavur, Kancheepuram and Madurai.
