Training centre for disabled kids soon

TRICHY: The district welfare department for the differently-abled people here is all set to get a new training centre for children with disabilities. The work for the exclusive centre will commence soon. The proposed centre will be the second such facility in the state after Chennai.

The double-storey building to host the facility is coming upon on the premises of the existing office for the differently-abled. Children with various handicaps would be provided service here. Spastics, mentally-challenged, visually-challenged, hearing-impaired and children with multiple disabilities can approach the centre. The building, which will be built at a cost of Rs 36 lakh, would be ready for inauguration early next year. The Public Works Department (PWD) has the onus for construction. The approval for construction, along with the financial expenditure, was given by the state government a month ago, revealed R Ravichandran, the junior rehabilitation officer. The training centre will be catering to the children from the district as well as to other districts.tnn

The training centre would be admitting children right from birth, since doctors claim that early intervention could possibly rectify ailments, especially speech defects, and also bring down the impact of other ailments.

Till now, the disabled children who approached the department were directed to the respective day-care centres in the city that are being run by the non-governmental organisations. The current training centre could add capacity by providing the students with daycare facilities, said R Ravichandran.

About 200 children in the city are currently enrolled in the six schools run by the NGOs under the control of the welfare department for the differently-abled.

PWD officials said that the six-room building would have ramps and other features to aid the differently-abled. Each floors would be having three rooms and a 1,000 sq ft hall.

Tiruchi runs to spread awareness of breast cancer

Theme of the event “Run, Tiruchi Run”


Image

A large number of people participated in an awareness run organised jointly by Dr. K. Shantha Breast Cancer Foundation, Dr. Viswanatham Speciality Hospital, and the Rotary Club of Srirangam in the city on Sunday as part of their breast cancer sensitisation initiative. The theme of the event “Run, Tiruchi Run” was organised in three categories.

For students above 14 years of age, the mammo run started from Mambala Salai; for women from K.A.P. Viswanatham Higher Secondary School in Thillai Nagar; and for corporate representatives, the run began from Campion Anglo Indian Higher Secondary School. The events were flagged off by A. Amalraj, Deputy Inspector General of Police, Tiruchi Range, S.P. Rajeswari, Superintendent of Police, Tiruchi, and V.P. Thandapani, Corporation Commissioner, respectively.

The runners were received by cancer survivors at Anna Stadium. Jayashree Muralidharan, Collector, gave away prizes to the winners - 12 men and 12 women - and also honoured the cancer survivors. She emphasised the importance of early detection of cancer. The Collector appreciated the efforts of two women survivors with artificial limbs for participating in the run, and felicitated them.

K. Govindaraj, managing trustee of the foundation, said about 3,300 people took part in the run organised to observe ‘Pink October’ when awareness programmes about breast cancer are held. The mammo bus, a mobile unit of the foundation, has been camping in rural areas of Tiruchi and its neighbouring districts for the past one year. Out of 1,600 women screened, three tested positive. Apart from providing low-cost test, the unit has been a success in early detection of breast cancer, he said.

Piramal Group-backed Kauvery Medical Care plans second round of PE fund-raising

Sri Kavery Medical Care (Trichy) Pvt Ltd is in the process of raising funds from private equity (PE) firms to finance its expansion plans, said Dr S Manivannan, joint managing director. He, however, refused to reveal how much is the hospital chain planning to raise through the PE route.

In the first round of fund-raising, the healthcare provider had reportedly raised Rs 90 crore from India Venture Advisors Pvt Ltd, the private equity arm of the Piramal Group, for a 30 per cent stake.

The hospital chain plans to add 1,000 beds over the next three years with an investment of Rs 100 crore. It currently has 750 beds in three hospitals at Trichy and one at Chennai.

“We are planning to expand our operations across Tamil Nadu. In the next three years, we will be adding 1,000 beds," Manivannan told Business Standard on the sidelines of a session on Indo-US collaboration in healthcare sector, organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry.

According to Manivannan, the plan is to set up five hospitals with 200 beds each in tier-1 and tier-2 cities in Tamil Nadu.

“The investment would be around Rs 100 crore to achieve targeted size. It would be a staggered investment and would be a mix of equity and debt,” he added.

The hospital chain’s current turnover is Rs 100 crore, which it expects to grow to Rs 400-500 crore over the next three years.

Congo patient operated for colic tumour in Tiruchi

A patient from Democratic Republic of Congo was successfully operated for colic tumour at Dr.G.Viswanathan Speciality Hospitals in the city recently. Ruhigwa Bamaraki Ibrahim was suspected to be suffering from cancer of the rectum and secondaries in the pancreas.

The doctors in his country had said that there was no cure for his problem and suggested symptomatic relief by colostomy.

Mr. Ruhigwa’s son approached Dr.G.Viswanathan Speciality Hospitals for the treatment. Following a letter from the hospital, a medical visa was obtained from the Indian Embassy at Congo for Mr. Ruhigwa.

No secondaries

“After evaluation, a complete excision of the tumour in the rectum with end-to-end anastomosis was done. To our surprise, we never found any secondary in the pancreas. This patient will need oral chemotherapy, not intra venous chemotherapy, and he is fully cured of his disease,” Dr. K. Govindaraj, hospital director, told presspersons on Thursday. Mr. Ruhigwa will return home on October 16.

Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital still lacks full-fledged cardiology department

TRICHY: At a time when many young lives are lost due to cardiac diseases, the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) here lacks a full-fledged cardiology department. Many heart patients now have to rely on private hospitals for complicated surgeries as well as advanced diagnosis and treatment.

MGMGH located in the heart of the city is sought after by patients from Trichy and nearby districts of Perambalur, Ariyalur and Pudukkottai for emergency cardiac care. Unfortunately, they can't rely on the hospital for complicated surgery or advanced treatment. The hospital has been crippled by inadequate heart-care facilities for many years. The cardiology department can only provide emergency treatment to the patient, nothing beyond it. As it lacks an angiogram facility, cardiologists can't ascertain the nature of blocks that caused a heart attack. Those patients requiring better diagnosis and treatment have to depend on private hospitals as the medical college hospitals in Thanjavur and Thiruvarur are also on par with the MGMGH in terms of heart-care treatment.

An emergency care staff in Thanjavur medical college on the condition of anonymity said: "Many cardiac patients are diverted to private hospitals from the government hospitals. They usually approach private hospitals in Trichy. But, only the affluent patients can cough up money. So many heart cases end up in tragedy."

Interestingly, the cardiology department was inaugurated in the MGMGH hospital a year ago with only one cardiologist, Dr P Balasubramaniam, to take care of more than 300 patients per month. A senior doctor on the condition of anonymity also rued shortage of staff. "The manpower in the cardiology department is pathetic. We can reduce the mortality rate due if the hospital is equipped with all the facilities and has enough staff. Now, the private hospitals end up richer because of the government's health insurance scheme."

Commenting on the matter, MGMGH dean Dr R Vallinayagam, said the cardiology department will be upgraded soon. "The process is on to set up a full-fledged cardiology department in the specialty block which is under construction on the MGMGH campus. We hope it would become functional in three months."

Eco-medicinal park soon

The scenic Pachamalai Hills is likely to get an eco-medicinal park soon, as part of the Rs. 2.30 crore eco-tourism project announced by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

The community based eco-tourism development project is aimed at socio-economic uplift of local communities (the ‘Malayali’ tribe) by creating community assets and facilitating group entrepreneurship programmes through the funds generated from eco-tourism.

The hills are culturally rich with unique traditions and ethnic practices by the tribe.

The traditional food of the tribe is an important part of the eco-medicinal park. The park is aimed to the centre for wellness . The habits and way of life of the community may be interesting for tourists who visit the place.

Apart from the park, tourists can try trekking in the forest trails, visit waterfalls, and enjoy the therukoothu (street play) by local people and bullock cart rides.

Accommodation and food options will be available.
