Government Royapettah Hospital is a major state-owned hospital situated in Royapettah in Chennai, India. The hospital with 712 beds is funded and managed by the state government of Tamil Nadu. It was founded in 1911 and is attached to Directorate of Medical Education. It is the city's largest peripheral hospital,[2] and its limit extends up to Chengalpattu.[3]

History[edit]

The Government Royapettah Hospital was opened in 1911.[1] The cancer treatment centre at the hospital's annexure building was constructed for INR 170 million. The centre is the first exclusive government-run facility for cancer care in the state.[2]

Future developments[edit]

In 2011, as part of its centenary celebration, the Central Government funded the hospital a sum of INR 43.5 million to construct two additional floors in its Accident and Trauma Block. There was also a proposal for setting up a "Zero Delay Ward". The state government funded INR 10 million on the new surgical block. The casualty ward is already under renovation.[4]
