Part of ESI hospital to be razed to take up new work

Staff Correspondent


The first phase of construction will commence after the demolition

The new building will have facilities such as emergency trauma centre


MYSORE: A portion of the Employees' State Insurance (ESI) Hospital on KRS Road here is being demolished to make way for the construction of a modernised hospital at a cost of Rs. 25 crore.

Union Minister for Labour and Employment M. Mallikarjun Kharge laid the foundation stone for the project in February.

The first phase of construction will commence after the demolition is done. After the completion of works under the first phase, the second phase of the project (demolishing the remaining portion of the building) will be taken up. As part of its plan to construct state-of-the-art hospitals and equip them with advanced medical facilities and specialists, the Employees' State Insurance Corporation (ESIC), which functions under the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment, is modernising healthcare services under its control across the country. The ESI hospital modernisation project in Mysore is one of them.

“The objective of modernising the ESI hospital is to provide service on the lines of corporate hospitals,” the ESIC had said.

After the new building is constructed, ESIC plans to equip it with ultra-modern facilities such as a well-equipped emergency trauma centre, modular operation theatre complex, modern intensive care unit, advanced laboratories and a blood bank. There are plans to include super-speciality services after the modernisation of the hospital, which will be completed in 18 months.

The 100-bed ESI hospital on KRS Road provides in-patient and out-patient treatment facilities to nearly 56,073 insured persons and 2.5 lakh beneficiaries, including their family members and others.

Mr. Kharge had said in February that an additional Rs. 25 crore would be released for the hospital's development.

The ESIC officials had been directed to ensure early completion of the project.
