Royapettah Government Hospital[edit]

In 2011, as part of its centenary celebration, the Government Hospital here has obtained funds from the Central Government to construct two additional floors in its Accident and Trauma Block. A sum of 43.5 million has been sanctioned for construction of the two floors.[citation needed] There is also a proposal for setting up a "Zero Delay Ward" in the hospital. The state government has funded the 10 million work at the new surgical block while the casualty ward is already under renovation.[1]
