CHENNAI: The new buildings at the Communicable Diseases Hospital in Tondiarpet will be ready by September, said Mayor M. Subramanian here on Tuesday.

Inspecting the construction of the modern facility at a cost of Rs.18 crore, he said the 360-bed hospital would be a boon to a large number of patients not only in Chennai, but from neighbouring districts too. Patients from as far as Andhra Pradesh are also making use of the hospital.

Coming up on around 14 acres, the new facilities with a built-up area of 1.1 lakh sq ft are being constructed at an estimated cost of Rs.18 crore. The construction work commenced in 2009. The buildings would house a block each for air-borne infectious diseases, diarrhoeal diseases and fevers. Separate buildings for the administrative block, laboratory, kitchen, outpatient block, mortuary and laundry are also coming up.

Additionally, a park would also be developed on the premises of the hospital, the Mayor told mediapersons, after reviewing the status of the work. The opposition leader of Corporation Council, Saidai P. Ravi, and civic body officials accompanied him during the visit to the construction site.

Explaining that the modernisation was necessitated as the hospital received hundreds of outpatients every day, Mr.Subramanian said the hospital admitted persons for various infectious diseases.
