A project to set up a burns unit at Cochin Medical College was launched on Friday with the BPCL Kochi Refinery inking a MoU with the CMC authorities for sponsoring the project.

The public sector oil company will contribute Rs 1.5 crore for the project, which is part of the next-stage development of the hospital. Union Minister K V Thomas inaugurated the construction activities. Projects for development of casualty and renovation of lecture hall were also launched at the function.

“With the development projects supported by banks’ consortium, the medical college will be able to provide better treatment,” Thomas said. “We hope the burns unit will be ready by March 31, if everything goes as per the plan. The unit will be fully air-conditioned with social equipment to treat burns,” said CMC medical director Junaid Rahman. BPCL Kochi Refinery executive director Prasad K Panicker signed the MoU. Neither Cooperative Minister C N Balakrishnan nor senior officers of the Cooperative Academy for Professional Education (CAPE), which runs CMC, were present at the function.
