MMHRC Plans a 250-bed Multi-specialty Hospital in Tanjore


Meenakshi Mission Hospital & Research Centre (MMHRC), the multi-specialty hospital located in Madurai with 650-beds and 25 major specialities, is on an expansion spree. After succeeding in Madurai, MMHRC is about to recreate the same model in the town of the Cholas, Tanjore. The Tanjore facility will be a 250-bed multi-specialty hospital which will cater to the towns of Tanjore, Pudukottai, Ariyalur, Kumbakonam, Nagapattinam and other villages in the vicinity.

“For the Tanjore facility, we have acquired a land and construction work is in full swing. We have also acquired a 100-bed hospital in Tirunelveli district which has started functioning,” said Dr N Sethuraman, Founder Chairman, MMHRC. The hospital has acquired a land in Kottakudi village near Melur (25 kms from Madurai) to start another 350-bed multi-speciality hospital.

The Madurai facility of MMHRC will also add another 150 beds adding its total bed strength up to 800 beds. MMHRC will have a third cathlab and a second cardio-thoracic OT to cater to the increasing flow of cardiac patients. The hospital has recently initiated an obesity clinic which has formulated an innovative way of treating obese patients that includes exercise, yoga, diet and an innovative training programme.

A medical university is also in the offing. This would include a 300-bed hospital to serve the patients under the Chief Minister’s Insurance Scheme and Star Health Insurance packages. “The medical university would be the largest in South India with a nursing college in it,” said Dr Sethuraman.

little old news but help us to know development works in Thanjavur

THANJAVUR: A pharmacy college would be started at Thanjavaur Medical College this year to mark the golden jubilee celebrations, said M.R.K.Panneerselvam, Minister for Health, here on Sunday. Speaking at the alumni meet held as part of the celebrations of the college, the Minister said, “Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi announced during the millennium celebrations of the Big Temple that a cancer hospital and a trauma care hospital would come up at the Thanjavur Medical College at Rs.50 crore. Besides, maternity and child care department would be improved at a cost of Rs.8 crore.”

Medical education

Tamil Nadu stood first in the country in medical education and health services. The state boasts of 17 government medical colleges, while three more colleges would come up in Sivaganga, Tiruvannamalai and Perambalur. There were eight self-financing medical colleges in the state, the Minister said.

Ambulance service

Taking into account the growing popularity of the 108 ambulance service, 260 more ambulances would be inducted. Already 385 ambulances are functioning and nearly 7.5 lakh people have benefitted from the service.

About 2,000 babies have been delivered in the ambulances. Now orders have been issued that vehicles can move to adjacent districts during emergencies, the Minister pointed out.

Insurance scheme

About 2,25,000 people have undergone surgeries to the tune of Rs 590 crore under the Kalaignar's Insurance Scheme for Life Saving Treatment .

In the last four and a half years, Rs. 1,200 crore had been allotted for construction of buildings and Rs 600 crore for purchase of new equipment in the health department. The Minister appealed to the alumni to come forward and donate for the college. He suggested that the college adopt a village and render medical service as is being done by Madras Medical College and Stanley Medical College in Chennai.

S.S.Palani Manickam, Union Minister of State for Finance, urged the alumni to ask their wards, pursuing higher education abroad, to come back to Thanjavur and serve the people.

S.N.M. Ubayathullah, Commercial Taxes Minister, V.K.Subburaj, Health Secretary, said there was a need for seven lakh doctors and 500 government medical colleges in the country. V.Kanagasabai, Director of Medical Education, V.Varadarajan, President, Thanjavur Medical College Alumni Association, P.Ravishankar, Dean, Thanjavur Medical College, G.Ambujam, Medical Superintendent, Thanjavur Medical College Hospital, C.Gunasekaran, organising chairman of the Alumni Meet and K.Mohan, secretary, spoke.

Proposal to cover Thanjavur under village-wise assessment

THANJAVUR: Speaking at the monthly farmers grievances day meeting here on Friday, the District Collector, M.S.Shanmugham, said that samba has been raised on 1,22,459 hectares of land , and harvest has been completed on 7,721 hectares, with an average yield of 5,296 kilos per hectare.

It had been planned to raise black gram on 50,000 hectares this year, he said.

From October 1, 2010, to January 25th the Tamil Nadu Civil Supplies Corporation (TNCSC) has procured 96,380 tonnes of paddy. A total of 307 Direct Purchase Centres are functioning in the district – Thanjavur taluk 33, Thiruvaiyaru taluk 16, Orathandu 70, Kumbakonam 43, Thiruvidaimaruthur 30, Papanasam 49, Pattukottai 45, and Peravurani 21. Farmers are paid Rs.1, 100 per quintal for grade A paddy and Rs.1, 050 per quintal for the common variety.

Farmers complained that flood relief has not been given to all the affected farmers, and they enquired as to when the village-wise crop insurance scheme will be implemented in the district.

Surya Narayanan, Administrative Officer, Agriculture Insurance Company of India Ltd, said that at present firca and block-level assessment is being done for payment of compensation under crop insurance scheme, but this is not helping individual farmers.

In Sivaganga, Cuddalore, and Namakkal districts village-wise assessment is being done on experimental basis, and the Collector has sent a proposal to the government to include Thanjavur district under the scheme. It will be done soon, Surya Narayanan said.

A sum of Rs.6.17crore has been received from the government for payment of compensation for the year 2009, and it has been disbursed to farmers through co-operative banks. For the samba season this year, crop cutting experiment is being undertaken in the district. After assessing the yield loss, compensation will be paid to farmers, he said. N.Asokan, Superintendent Engineer, PWD, and C.Suresh Kumar, District Revenue officer, participated.

Workshop on sanitation policies stresses on public participation

THANJAVUR: The need for people's participation, and a well-planned approach by officials to ensure sanitation in a municipal town was stressed at the Regional Dissemination Workshop on National Urban Sanitation Policy (NUSP) and City Sanitation Plan (CSP) here on Friday.

Inaugurating the workshop, K. Rajasekaran, Regional Engineer, Municipal Administration, Thanjavur region, said that hygiene was once a personal matter. But with population explosion and changing life styles, waste generation is very high in urban areas.

Challenging task

As a result, managing and ensuring sanitation in public places has become a challenging task. While on one hand training officials on efficient waste management is paramount, people should also be sensitised to participate in the process, Mr. Rajasekaran said.

The workshop was organised by Regional Directorate of Municipal Administration, Thanjavur and Exnora International and Water Aid.

T. Vijay Anand, Programme Coordinator, Exnora International, said that the Union Ministry of Urban Development had launched the National Urban Sanitation Policy (NUSP) in October 2008 to accelerate the tempo of establishing sustainable sanitation in cities, municipal towns and town panchayats. The City Sanitation Plan (CSP) envisaged under NUSP will be the basis for all funding by the State governments and the Central government in future. The CSP, that aims at sustainable sanitation services to all sections of society, should be technically feasible and be prepared and finalised in a participatory manner .

Nine municipalities

It has been planned to prepare CSP for nine municipalities in Tamil Nadu in a period of three years.

The plan is already executed at Kulithalai in Karur district, Velankanni in Nagapattinam district and Kotaiyur in Sivaganga district. Six more municipalities can join in the process. They will be included depending upon their proposal to join the scheme, Mr. Vijay Anand said. The workshop is to motivate the officers to send their proposals.

A. Amuthavel, Chairman, Kulithalai Municipality said that Kulithalai has emerged as a model in the State in solid waste management through community participation. Sanitary workers have been given incentives for collecting plastic waste in the town. “We cleaned the places where the wastes are dumped and drew rangolis in those areas, thus making it clean and hygiene. We also took the help of students and school teachers in creating awareness about solid waste management,” Mr. Amuthavel said.

P. Kalimuthu, Commissioner of Thanjavur Municipality, and V. Ganapathy, Liaison Officer, Exnora International, also spoke on the occasion.

Choices aplenty at book exhibition

THANJAVUR: Besides inculcating the habit of reading among youth, book exhibitions also kindle creativity of writers, said S.S.Palani Manickam, Union Minister of State for Finance, here on Friday.

Inaugurating the book fair organised by the Rotary Club of Thanjavur Kings and Book Publishers and Sellers Association of South India, he said that intelligence of Indians was the capital resource of our country, which has been proved by statements made by American President Obama recently. Mr. Obama, who had acknowledged that India is spending more on Education and health, said that under the ambit of education, the habit of reading is also included.

Thanjavur has many important libraries like Saraswathi Mahal LIbrary, Tamil University Library which should be popularised to attract more readers. He said that the State government has opened libraries even in villages to enhance the reading habit of rural youth. He offered to purchase the best books from the exhibition for the library being set up at the DMK party office here.

Leading publishers like Bharathy, Annam, New Century Book House lt, Tamil University are taking part in the exhibition. Eight English publishers have put up stalls. Ten per cent discount is given for the books purchased at the exhibition. Asif Ali, Project Director, Rotary Book Fair, C.Gunaseakaran, Assistant Governor, Rotary, S.T.Ramanathan, president of the club participated in the function.

1.80-lakh EVMs brought to State

THANJAVUR: Eligible voters whose names are left out in the electoral rolls can get their names included in the rolls until the date of withdrawal of candidates from polls said Praveen Kumar, Chief Electoral Officer, Tamil Nadu, here on Friday.

He reviewed the poll preparatory works for the upcoming assembly elections, and visited the Thiruvaiyaru taluk office to inspect the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) kept there.

He told presspersons that 50,000 names from all over the State that were entered twice in the list were deleted.

Gauge conversion work accelerated

TIRUCHI: The pace of broad gauge (BG) conversion work in the Mayiladuthurai-Tiruvarur section has been accelerated for completion by June.

The project to lay BG track for 38 km, being executed by the Construction Wing of the Southern Railways with an outlay of Rs. 210 crore, commenced in March 2009.

It includes construction of two crossing stations, two halt stations, 19 major bridges, and 193 minor bridges. There will be 22 manned level-crossings and 10 unmanned level-crossings. Designating Peralam and Nannilam as crossing stations will enable the halting and crossing of trains in both directions which will avoid delay. While Peralam is 16 km away, Nannilam is 25 km from Mayiladuthurai. Manganallur and Punthottam will be the halting stations sans signals, where the trains will halt only for entry and exit of passengers. These stations will be manned by the agents.

Over 85 per cent of the work on this project had already been completed, and senior Railway officials were expected to inspect the progress shortly, according to railway sources here.

Once this project is completed, the Railways is likely to operate direct trains from Nagore / Nagapattinam to Chennai on the shortest route via Tiruvarur and Mayiladuthurai. At present the Nagore-Chennai overnight express trains take the circuitous route of Tiruvarur-Thanjavur-Kumbakonam -Mayiladuthurai.

Devotees from Karnataka and the western districts of Tamil Nadu visiting Velankanni, Tirunallar, and Nagore, will get a direct train facility, after many years. The Railway Ministry has already announced the extension of the train number 572 / 571 Bangalore-Salem passenger train to Nagore, once the Mayiladuthurai-Tiruvarur section is thrown open for train traffic.

The Railways has planned to take up gauge conversion work from Tiruvarur to Karaikudi, and between Tiruthuraipoondi and Agasthiampalli, shortly. The works on laying new lines between Nagapattinam and Tiruthuraipoondi via Tirukkuvalai, and from Needamangalam to Mannargudi had begun, the sources added.
