The Mahatma Gandhi Memorial (MGM) government hospital will soon get additional doctors and new equipment to improve the quality of treatment at the super-speciality and trauma care centre. The hospital will get 21 new doctors and an advanced CT scan equipment.
The creation of new posts for the centre would be a crucial one as the Rs 100 crore worth project has been functioning as a general hospital since its inauguration in 2014.
"A total of 21 posts of doctors have been created for the super-speciality and trauma care centre in Trichy. The posts include eight associate professors and 13 assistant professors. The newly created vacancies will be filled by the doctors transferred from other hospitals by end of this month," dean Dr Anitha told TOI on Saturday.

The hospital has also got a new CT scan equipment to replace the old one. The machine which costs Rs 1.85 crore was brought to the hospital a week back.
"It will capture 16 slices thus we can get 32 cuts. The speed and accuracy will be higher. The existing one can produce the images in eight minutes whereas the new one will do it in three minutes," said Dr Anitha.
Tamil Nadu Medical Supplies Corporation (TNMSC) procured 20 machines for hospitals across the state. One of the 20 scan machines was allotted to MGMGH. The old one will be shifted to Taluk hospitals, she added.
The move to replace the old CT scan equipment has caused trouble to the patients here as they were being referred to Srirangam government hospital for the past one week. However, the dean denied any difficulties to the inpatients. "We managed to take scans for inpatients. Only the outpatients are being referred to Srirangam government hospital," she said. She added that the issues will be sorted out as soon as the new machine is installed.
