Report on the assets and liabilities of the Cooperative Medical College (CMC) at Kalamassery will be  submitted to the state government within a week, District Collector P I Sheik Pareeth said on Saturday.

He was speaking at the inaugural of a new nursing school and college building on the medical college campus which was inaugurated by Union Minister K V Thomas.

Thomas said there is huge potential for the development of the CMC once it is taken up by the state government. “The college boasts 66 acres of land which is a plus point since finding land for development in the state is an extremely difficult task. The space can be utilised for future developmental activities,” the Minister said.

The nursing school and college, which cost approximately Rs 8 crore, was set up on 72,000 sq ft of land.

Thomas urged the CMC and municipal authorities to prepare a master plan for its development. He said a meeting to finalise developmental projects such as setting up of a burns unit and a CAT laboratory will be held on July 10. The Minister said Cochin Shipyard had pledged to provide Rs 1.5 crore for the burns unit. It will give Rs 3 crore for the CAT lab, while an ICU unit for Rs 1 crore will be contributed by GAIL and Petronet. 

Thomas added that he was willing to introduce two circular bus services so that people have better access to the hospital.
