₹10 crore granted for early intervention centre

Image

Quote:
The State government has sanctioned ₹10 crore for constructing new buildings for the Early Intervention Centre for Children and Counselling for Adolescents at the K.A.P. Government Medical College Hospital here.

The centre will be housed just opposite the paediatric ward on about 20,000 square feet. A Government Order to that effect has been issued recently.

Marry Lilly, Dean of the hospital, said that the selection of land had been approved. It would be implemented with the help of National Urban Health Mission (NUHN). Other procedures for starting the construction works had commenced. She said that it would have facilities for reception, children examination, physical training centre, vision test room, hearing test room and others. There would be a laboratory block as well.

The centre, which was started recently at the hospital, had received large number of patients from Tiruchi, Karur, Perambalur and Ariyalur. It would enable early identification of autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other disorders among children. Therapeutic equipment like bolster, platform and tyre tube swings for treating autistic children would be established.

Reproductive health care wing waits for inauguration


Image

The newly-built Reproductive Mother and Child Health Care building at K.A.P. Viswanatham Medical College Hospital is awaiting inauguration. The building, constructed at a cost of ₹20 crore, has 298 beds specifically to offer services on reproductive health care. It has taken the number of beds to about 1700.

Reproductive Health Care is said to be the first of its kind in this part of the region in government hospitals. It is aimed at offering exclusive services on breast health care, women health care, reproductive health issues, pre and post pregnancy issues, hormonal conditions, ovarian issues, infertility and others.

It was one of the major infrastructural projects taken up at the hospital, which receives about 6,000 patients a day from different parts of Tiruchi, Pudukottai, Perambalur, Ariyalur and Karur. The construction of the building, which was started about four years ago, is already over.

About three months have passed since it was declared ready for opening. Health Minister C. Vijayabaskar had also recently visited the building and inspected the facilities provided for the mother and child health care. However, it is yet to be inaugurated.

It is learnt that it was originally planned to open the building by the late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa through video conferencing. However, the plan was subsequently dropped due to her hospitalisation and sudden demise. Similarly, the subsequent transition of power in the State and the later political developments in the State were said to have further delayed the opening of the building.

In addition to it, there were issues of creating posts of doctors, nurses and other para medical staff.

When contacted, Marry Lilly, Dean, told The Hindu that there was a need to appoint medical personnel for the department.

A proposal had been sent to the government to create and appoint adequate personnel.

Similarly, she had discussed with the senior officials of the department on establishing equipment and testing facilities at the new building.

Patronage grows for Yoga and Naturopathy Department

It has treated more than one lakh patients since its inception

The Yoga and Naturopathy Department of the K. A. P. Viswanatham Medical College Hospital in Tiruchi has achieved a milestone by treating more than one lakh patients since its inception.

When the department was started in September 2014 at the old casualty ward, it did not have much infrastructure except a few mats for performing yoga.

It had then started treating patients with acupuncture. Recently, it added a few more fitness equipment such as treadmill, twister, static cycle, spinal spray bathtub and hip bathtub to offer more services to the patients. Marry Lilly, Dean of the hospital inaugurated the new instruments.

It has now turned out to be one of the much sought after departments in the hospital, doctors say. “We are happy that the number of patients treated at the department has crossed one lakh. Most of them have been treated with the well acclaimed natural treatment methods,” said Preethi Pushkarni, Assistant Medical Officer.

She said that the department offered various treatments including acupuncture, acupressure, magnet therapy, mud therapy, steam bath and facial scheme to out-patients and patients referred by neurologists and others. Patients were treated for diabetic, hypertension, arthritis, paralytic disorders, migraine, insomnia and others.

Dr. Pushkarni said the department received on an average 120 patients a day. Several patients from far flung areas including Salem and Namakkal also visited the hospital for treatment.

“The response was sluggish in the beginning. But, there is very good patronage now. Most of the new cases are referred by patients, who had undergone treatment earlier. The increasing patronage gives us a sense of satisfaction,” she added.
