VTSM Cancer Centre to be upgraded, says Patil

Minister of State for Medical Education Sharanprakash Patil has said that the VTSM Peripheral Cancer Treatment Centre in Kalaburagi city attached to the Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology was being upgraded into a full-fledged cancer hospital with all facilities including surgical, medical oncology and chemotherapy.


Speaking at a function to mark the laying of foundation stone for the installation of the Rs. 10-crore Linear Accelerated Radiation Therapy Unit at the cancer centre here on Saturday, Dr. Patil said that the State government has given administrative approval to upgrade the centre in two phases. In the first phase, the Linear Accelerator Radiation Therapy Unit was being established and in the second phase the surgical and medical oncology units and the chemotherapy treatment facilities would be included.


He said that necessary changes and additions were made at a cost of Rs. 2 crore in the existing building of the peripheral cancer centre for upgrading it into a full-fledged cancer hospital, which would be a boon to the patients afflicted by cancer, who otherwise had to spend huge sums of money to avail treatment in higher centres.


Dr. Patil said that the State government has also sanctioned new posts in the upgraded peripheral cancer treatment centre in Kalaburagi and soon the notification calling applications to fill these new posts would be published. The government has also accorded permission to fill up all the vacant posts in the centre immediately.


He said that the work on the Rs. 25-crore Trauma Care Centre in the General Hospital Complex would start and the tenders would be floated for awarding the works soon.
A proposal has also been submitted for the establishment of a super speciality hospital to the Finance and Planning Department for the approval. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in his budgetary speech had sanctioned a super speciality hospital to Kalaburagi.
Dr. Patil said that the work of constructing 500 bed hospital in Bidar was in progress.

State identifies four places to set up AIIMS-like institute

The State government has shortlisted four places for establishing a super-speciality hospital-cum-medical college on the lines of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

The places identified are Herohalli in Ramanagar, Itagatti near Dharwad, Government district hospital, Vijayapura district and in Kalaburagi district. The State will take the plan forward once the Centre gives its approval.

In a written reply to BJP’s C T Ravi in the Assembly on Thursday, Minister of State for Medical Education Sharanprakash Patil said the government was pursuing its plans to have an institute on the lines of AIIMS Delhi.

The place for the institute in Kalaburagi has been identified and the information has been submitted to the Centre. Dharwad district administration has also identified a place for the institute and a blueprint has been prepared. But there is no information from Vijayapura and Ramanagar districts.

The State, as per the directions of the Centre, is ready to provide 200 acres of land with infrastructure for opening an AIIMS-like institute, he added. Replying to another question, the minister said the State, in principle, had agreed to take over the ESI medical college- cum-hospital in Kalaburagi. A letter to this effect was written to the Centre on April 13. At present, the college is run by the Union Ministry of Labour.

When contacted by this newspaper, the minister said the Labour ministry wanted the State to take over the ESI medical college. “The ministry had also said it was contemplating running the institute on a public-private participation model. Learning this, we said we would take over the administration. However, the ministry is yet to decide. A sum of Rs 1,500 crore was spent on constructing the building,” Patil said.

On whether the proposed institute could be housed in the ESI medical college in Kalaburagi, he said even that could be considered.

Suspense Ends, ESIC to Run College, Hospital in Kalaburagi

BENGALURU/KALABURAGI:Union Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya said that the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) will take up the responsibility of running and maintaining the hospital and medical college built by the corporation at Kalaburagi.


Dattatreya, in a letter to his cabinet colleague M Venkaiah Naidu, has said that the Labour ministry had taken a final call on the issue keeping public good in mind.
This ends the uncertainty over running the Rs 2,000 crore-worth hospital and medical college which was inaugurated over a year back. While the ESIC wanted the state government to take up the responsibility, the latter was reluctant citing financial constraints.


Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha member Basavaraj Patil Sedam, who hails from Kalaburagi district, had written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking his intervention in the matter. Modi in turn asked Naidu to discuss the issue with Dattatreya.
History


The ESIC Medical College of Kalaburagi commenced functioning in 2013-14. Trouble started in the beginning of this year with the announcement of deputy medical commissioner (ME-II) Vivek Handa that ESIC at its 163rd meeting on December 4, 2014, had decided to exit the field of medical education since it was not its core function. It was decided at the meeting that ESIC should not undertake further admissions to medical colleges and other medical educations (PG, nursing, para-medical and dental) nor start new medical colleges.


All ongoing medical education programmes may continue till the students pass out or (they) are adjusted according to provisions of the Essentiality Certificate issued by the state government, whichever is earlier, the meeting decided. It was also decided that ESIC will hand over its medical colleges and other medical education institutions having separate infrastructure to the state governments willing for such a transfer.


The staff and the student community staged a protest and sent memorandums to the labour minister to reconsider the decision. Even Kalaburagi MP Mallikarjun Kharge pleaded strongly to the labour minister, PM and the President of India.


The state sent a letter to the labour minister to reconsider the move, failing which, the state was ready to run the college. Dattatreya, who visited Kalaburagi in the first week of July, did not make any commitment.

Rare Sight: A Positive Picture at Kalaburagi Hospital

KALABURAGI:Though the Kalaburagi District Government Hospital faces shortage of doctors and specialists, there is no major problem because of the experts working at ESI Medical College and Gulbarga Institute of Medical College.

District surgeon Dr. Nalini Namoshi told Express that the sanctioned doctors’ posts for the District Government Hospital are 94 and 46. She said apart from the doctors serving in the District Government Hospital, 110 doctors/ specialists of ESIC Medical College and 56 doctors/specialists of Gulbarga Institute of Medical Sciences were offering service to the District Government Hospital as both the medical colleges have been attached to the hospital.

The major problem of the hospital is the severe shortage of group ‘D’ employees. The hospital is not facing any shortage of equipment. Four ventilators have been given to ICU and they are in good condition. Of the two ventilators given to the pediatrics department, one is in good condition and another is under repair.

BENGALURU:Soon, heart patients in places like Koppal, Yadgir, Bidar, Kalaburagi and surrounding areas need not go as far as Bengaluru to avail treatment at the Jayadeva Insititute of Cardiovascular Scinces. The institute is opening a 114-bed branch in Kalaburagi in five months.

Jayadeva Director Dr C N Manjunath told Express that the branch will have a 40-bed ICU. “We have also identified five cardiologists for the hospital. Four duty doctors, two surgeons and two anaesthesia specialists will also be deputed to the hospital that will come up within the premises of the Gulbarga Medical College Hospital,” he said.

The hospital management has already deputed engineers to set up the hospital at a cost of Rs 15 crore. Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) and Hyderabad Karnataka Development Board (HKDB) have allocated Rs 6 crore each, said an official. Jayadeva Hospital has pitched in with Rs 3 crore.

KALABURAGI: Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) is all set to start a super specialty hospital in Kalaburagi by the end of December in compliance with the norms of the Medical Council of India.

“All basic infrastructure, except power and water, are ready. Once we get these essentials, we will announce the date of inauguration,” said ESIC Medical College principal Dr Chandrashekhar.

He told Express that MCI had given ESIC permission to hold admissions for the third batch of first year MBBS students in the last week of September if they started their own hospital in three months.

He said that President Pranab Mukherjee will be in Kalaburagi on December 22
to participate in the convocation of the Central University, Karnataka and the venue for the convocation is the ESIC Medical College auditorium. “We want to utilise the opportunity and are planning to request the President to inaugurate the hospital,” he added.

The construction of ESIC Medical Complex has almost been completed and the building of super specialty hospital is ready. Most of the equipment required for the hospital has also been installed. ESIC is inviting tenders to procure radiology equipment within a few days. “We need about `1 crore to procure this equipment,” Dr Chandrashekar said.

“To run the super specialty hospital, we need additional 5 Mega Watt power and for this we have deposited `3.5 crore with GESCOM and KPTCL. They have promised to provide this within a week. The hospital needs 10 lakh litres of water per day on permanent basis. The Water Supply Board, on temporary basis is making arrangements to provide three lakh litres per day and it will be functional within a few days. The work of laying a pipeline to provide 10 lakh litres of water is under progress,” he said.

ESIC has already appointed 200 doctors, including 24 specialists in surgery, 24 in medicine and 12 in gynaecology and they are working at ESIC Medical College and at the District Government Hospital which is attached to ESIC Medical College.

Once the ESIC Super Specialty Hospital becomes functional, their services will be withdrawn from the District Government Hospital and they will work at ESIC Super Specialty Hospital.

47,210 Insured Persons (IPs) of Bidar, Kalaburagi, Vijayapura, Bagalkot, Bellary and Koppal districts (employees and employers registered with ESIC), will get treatment free of cost in this hospital.

Dr Chandrashekhar said he has written to the Director General of ESIC seeking formal permission to treat the general public also in this hospital by charging as per the norms being followed in the District Government Hospital.
“We are excepting permission from the DG as the ESIC Act has already been amended whereby ESIC Hospitals can treat the general public if the number of IPs is less than required strength,” Dr Chandrashekhar said.
