திருச்சி அப்போலோ மருத்துவமனையில் ஓராண்டுக்குள் 320 மெகா அறுவை சிகிச்சைகள்

திருச்சி அப்போலோ மருத்துவமனை தொடங்கிய ஓராண்டுக்குள் 320 மெகா அறுவை சிகிச்சைகள் மேற்கொண்டு சாதனை படைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. இதில் முதலமைச்சர் காப்பீட்டுத் திட்டத்தின் கீழ் செய்யப்பட்ட பைபாஸ் அறுவைச் சிகிச்சைகள் 120 அறுவை சிகிச்சைகள் வெற்றிகரமாக முடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. என்றனர் அதன் தலைமை மருத்துவ அறுவை சிகிச்சை நிபுணர் டி. செந்தில்குமார், மற்றும் மருத்துவ சிகிச்சை நிபுணர் என். செந்தில்குமார் ஆகியோர்.

இது குறித்து அவர்கள் திருச்சியில் செய்தியாளர்களிடம் கூறியது:

கடந்தாண்டு தமிழக முதலமைச்சரால் காணொளி காட்சி மூலம் தொடங்கப்பட்ட திருச்சி அப்போலோ மருத்துமனை ஓராண்டு முடிவதற்குள்ளேயே பல்வேறு சாதனைகளை படைத்துள்ளது. திருச்சியில் உள்ள பிற மருத்துவமனைகளை ஒப்பிடும்போது அவற்றைவிட குறைந்த செலவில் சர்வதேச தரத்துக்கு நிகரான மருத்துவ சேவையை அளித்து வருகின்றது.

தொடங்கிய ஓராண்டுக்குள் 190 இருதய அறுவை சிகிச்சை உள்ளிட்ட 320 அறுவைச் சிகிச்சைகளை மேற்கொண்டுள்ளோம். இதில் நவீன தொழில் நுட்பத்தில் இருதய துடிப்பை நிறுத்தாமலேயே அறுவை சிகிச்சை மேற்கொள்ளும் முறை கையாளப்படுவதால் நோயாளி எளிதாகவும் விரைவாகவும் குணமடைகின்றார். குறிப்பாக குழந்தைகளுக்கான 24 மணி நேர சிறப்பு இருதய சிகிச்சை பிரிவு சென்னைக்கு அடுத்தபடியாக திருச்சி மண்டலத்திலேயே அப்போலோவில்தான் உள்ளது.

எங்களிடம் மேற்கொள்ளப்படும் முதல்வர் காப்பீட்டு திட்ட சிகிச்சைகளுக்கு நோயாளிகளிடமிருந்து ஒரு ரூபாய் கூட பெறாமல் அவர்களுக்கும், கட்டணம் செலுத்தும் நோயளிகளைப்போலவே தரமான சிகிச்சை அளிக்கப்பட்டு வருகிறது. விரைவில் அகில இந்திய அளவிலான மருத்துவ தரச்சான்று பெறப்போகும் மருத்துவமனை அப்போலோ. இந்த சிறப்பிடத்தை பெற இங்கு பணியாற்றும் அனைத்துத் துறைகளைச் சேர்ந்த மருத்துவ குழுவினரின் முழு ஒத்துழைப்புதான் காரணம் என்றார்.

பேட்டியின்போது மருத்துவக்குழுவைச் சேர்ந்த மருத்துவர்கள், பிரேமாகுகா, ரோகிணி தர், காதர் சாகிப், சரவணன், பிரவின்குமார், இருதய சிகிச்சை நிபுணர் சென்னியப்பன் உள்ளிட்ட உள்ளிட்ட பலரும் பங்கேற்றனர்.

IPO-bound Aster strikes deals for B'lore, Hyderabad foray

India's third largest hospital chain Aster DM Healthcare has led a business acquisition of Cauvery Medical Center (CMC), in Bangalore, which is promoted by a group of non-resident Indians.

This marks Aster's entry into Bangalore, the home turf of two prominent home-grown hospital chains, Ranjan Pai-led Manipal Hospitals and Dr Devi Shetty's Narayana Hrudyalaya.

Kochi-based Aster, which is planning a Rs 1,500 crore initial public offer early next year, has been shoring up its presence in southern and western India through acquisitions and brownfield expansion.

Cauvery Medical, operating 75 beds currently, will be re-branded as Aster Bangalore and expanded to a 400 bed hospital, said Dr Azad Moopen, chairman and MD of Aster DM Healthcare. Aster has struck a long-term management contract deal with CMC's founders to run the hospital, he added.

Last month, Aster acquired 51% stake in Hyderabad-based Prime Hospitals for about Rs 75 crore, providing it with a 200-bed facility in the city. The company has also offered to buy stake in Trichy-based Kaveri Medical Centre, which operates multiple healthcare assets in Tamil Nadu.

10 new tobacco cessation clinics on anvil for TN

Tamil Nadu may soon get ten new tobacco cessation clinics at district-level hospitals in places including Coimbatore, Madurai, Tiruchi, Salem and Dindigul.

These clinics will have a doctor and a staff nurse, and offer both counselling and pharmacological options to those who are attempting to stop tobacco use.

“At present, we have about 80 such clinics across the State, but they only offer counselling. We want to bring in other options too, in order to help people quit,” said State tobacco control officer P. Vadivelan.

A proposal for the setting up of these clinics has been sent to the Central government and once sanction is given, work will begin on setting them up, he said.

Srirangam GH keeps pace with private hospitals

Image

A Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and New Born Care (CEmONC) centre and a digital X-ray unit are among the new facilities that are to be added soon to the Srirangam Government Hospital, which has witnessed tremendous improvements over the past three years.

The government order for setting up the CEmONC centre has been issued. A digital X-ray unit has already been sanctioned, according to the hospital authorities.

Equipped with an array of state-of-the-art equipment and excellent infrastructure, the Srirangam Government Hospital almost belies its status of a taluk hospital. With clean and hygienic environment and largely free from most of the ills that plague most other government institutions, it almost looks like a private hospital.

The hospital boasts of two well-equipped operation theatres with anaesthesia work-stations, specialist doctors on call, an air-conditioned Amma ward for beneficiaries of the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme, a CT-scanner, dialysis units, a C-Arm machine, a neo-natal intensive care unit, a fully-equipped dental unit and high tension power line for stable power supply.

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa has been commissioning new equipment and facilities almost on every visit to her constituency over the past three years. During her latest visit in June end, she commissioned nearly Rs.3 crore worth of equipment including the CT-scanner, C-Arm, eye operating microscope, and other equipment.

“With all the infrastructure development and commissioning of equipment, the number of referrals has come down by over 50 per cent at the hospital now.

We refer very few cases to the medical college or other hospitals these days,” said Shamsath Begum, Chief Medical Officer of the hospital.

The commissioning of the dialysis unit has come as a big boon for poor patients who cannot afford to undergo the expensive process at private hospitals, doctors say.

Similarly, any person can have a prescribed (even by private doctors) CT-scan at the hospital by paying just Rs.500. The facility is currently largely underutilised as there is not much awareness among the public about its availability at the hospital whereas there is a big queue for getting CT-scans done at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital in the city.

The air-conditioned Amma ward (set up as a model), with separate rooms for men and women, virtually looks like a ward at a private hospital. Although it is a common ward, privacy is ensured for each patient with screens around the bed.

The hospital has earned about Rs.1 crore so far under the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme.

The hospital with about 157-beds is now operating to full occupancy these days with upgradation of all the facilities, say doctors. It also attracts about 1,000 outpatients a day.

It also performs advanced and complicated surgeries such as knee and hip replacements. The hospital also performs surgeries on cancer patients by hiring private specialist doctors.

Srirangam govt hospital loaded with facilities, but lacks patients

TRICHY: A chief minister's constituency has its own advantages. And, Srirangam, is no exception as it is always got due recognition. One of them is the government hospital (GH) in Srirangam. Despite having been equipped with many facilities most of them are not fully utilized due to low turnout of patients. Due to this, there is a demand to refer the patients from other crowded government hospitals in the district to Srirangam GH.

During her last visit to the city on June 30, chief minister J Jayalalithaa dedicated two renal dialysis units, a CT scan and a C-Arm at the hospital.

Srirangam GH which was functioning with 127 beds was strengthened with a 32-bedded maternal ward last year. The maternal ward included three delivery boards. In the intensive care unit two beds and newborn stabilisation unit (NBSU) with paediatric ventilators are available.

The average inpatient in the hospital is 134 while the outpatients are more than 900 per day. Around 75 deliveries were conducted in the hospital so far.

As far as Trichy district is concerned, Mahatma Gandhi memorial government hospital (MGMGH) attached to KAP Viswanatham Government Medical College Hospital (KAPVGMC) is a premier hospital for poor people from the rural areas. Next to MGMGH, Srirangam gets latest equipment while the remaining eight government hospitals lack many facilities.

In fact, some of the latest equipment are not fully utilized due to low awareness about the facilities in the hospitals. Only one dialysis was done with the two units in the hospital for the past one month.

"We have done one renal dialysis for a patient with the latest equipment. Our doctors are ready to serve the people round-the-clock. Even if the number of patients increase, we can do our best to treat them. People should be aware of the facilities here and make use of it," said Dr S Samsath Begum, chief medical officer, Srirangam.

As many facilities are not available in government hospitals in other parts of the district, patients have to rely on MGMGH. So, MGMGH is crowded most of the times. Hence, it was suggested that the patients can be referred to Srirangam.

When contacted, district collector Jayashree Muralidharan said that she will look into the matter.

Sri Kavery Medical looking to raise Rs175-200 crore

Specialty hospital group Sri Kavery Medical Care (Trichy) Pvt. Ltd is looking to raise Rs.175-200 crore in growth capital and to provide an exit to its first investor, India Venture Advisors Pvt. Ltd (IVA), the healthcare-focused private equity fund of the Piramal Group, two bankers familiar with the development said.

The company based in Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu, is in talks with other private equity (PE) funds, said the bankers on condition of anonymity.

“The money is being raised to provide exit to the Piramal Group’s healthcare fund which had invested five years ago. It has already begun negotiations and it is also looking to raise growth capital,” said one of the bankers.

Sri Kavery Medical was founded by two doctors, S. Chandra Kumar and S. Manivannan, who started their healthcare business in 1999 with a 30-bed hospital in Trichy.

Dial 104 helpline for counselling on health

Image

The 104 medical helpline service offering medical advice and assistance to the public was launched in the district on Wednesday.

An initiative of Tamil Nadu Health System Project, the service is being run by GVK-Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI), which operates the “108” ambulance services in the State.

The 24-hour helpline would be manned by a team of doctors to offer medical assistance to callers, including immediate advice for simple ailments or direct them to the nearest and appropriate healthcare facility. In case of emergency situations, the calls would be referred to the 108 emergency response service for transporting patients to hospitals.

Complaints with respect to deficiencies in health care services can be lodged by dialling the helpline. Such calls would be referred to senior medical and district-level officers for immediate rectification.

Callers would be offered health-related counselling and guidance on matters such as nutrition, hygiene, family welfare, AIDS/HIV, and suicidal tendency by specialists. A psychologist would be at hand to provide counselling in necessary cases. Personal particulars of all callers would be registered by a registration office and each caller would be assigned a registration number.

Second-time callers could just mention their registration number and would not be required to give their full details again.

Medical professionals serving at remote locations would be offered updates through senior professionals. The service would be used for monitoring outbreak of epidemics, especially at times of disaster.

Launching the service here, District Collector Jayashree Muralidharan said the helpline would be a boon to the people in villages and remote areas as they could get medical advice over the telephone without having to travel long distance, saving them time and money.

It would help in early intervention as people in rural areas tend to postpone hospital visits. She urged medical officers in the district to serve the people without giving room for any complaint.

Ms. Muralidharan distributed 89 mobile phones with a “closed user group” numbers to 72 rural PHCs and senior medical officers of the district. The Collector would be part of the group and major complaints would be referred to her.
