GUNTUR: The Andhra Pradesh Medical Services and Infrastructure Development Corporation (APMSIDC)  is likely to take up the construction of a mother and child super speciality hospital on the premises of Government General Hospital (GGH) in the city soon.

The Centre sanctioned Rs 20 crore for the construction of super speciality hospital in 2014. A sum of Rs 15 crore was released by the State government for it. The Guntur Medical College Alumni of North America (GMCANA) has come forward to donate Rs 30 crore for the mother and child hospital if the project was taken up.

At present, there are 150 beds in the GGH for maternity cases. But the bed strength is highly inadequate as the GGH is getting more number of maternity cases. As part of the project, a modern building will be constructed with a bed strength of 200 to house the mother and child super speciality hospital. A proposal in this regard has already been submitted to the government. 

APMSIDC Executive Engineer Y Ashok Kumar  said: “Further talks with GMCANA will be held on quantum of donation after grounding the mother and child super speciality hospital project.” 
Government Hospital GGH Superintendent DS Raju Naidu said:  “GMCANA members who met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu during his recent visit to Amercia, promised to donate Rs 30 crore for the construction of the mother and child hospital. The works of the super speciality hospital are likely to be taken up soon.”
