Mangaluru: The new complex of Lady Goschen hospital will be ready by November. The work was marred by delay in-between. But, it accelerated after the visit of Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. The hospital will be one among the best hospitals in the state, built with CSR grants, in terms of infrastructure.
About 90% of the work on the new block of Lady Goschen Hospital is complete and the hospital will be ready for inauguration in the next two months. The new building has been built with the CSR fund of Rs 23.2 crore contributed by Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL) and Oil and Natural Gas Commission (ONGC). Recently, Rs 1.5 crore was released by the MRPL for the purchase of furniture and equipment.
It may be recalled that a portion of the 169-year-old government hospital was demolished in 2011 to facilitate the construction, when a donor provided Rs 18 crore for the construction of a new multi-storeyed building. The then chief minister B S Yeddyurappa had laid the foundation stone in April 2011. However, the work failed to take off. Later, under CSR activities of MRPL and ONGC, the work on the new building commenced in 2013.
