India’s Central Public Works Department (CPWD) has received Rs47m ($0.56m) from the health department to begin planning and designing a new Civil Hospital in Civil Lines, Delhi, reported The Times of India.

This funding will be channelled towards architectural planning, detailed topographical and contour survey work, and soil moisture testing.

The CPWD has signed a memorandum of understanding for the construction of a 700-bedded Civil Hospital, which will replace the existing facility that experienced multiple roof collapses in 2015 and 2016.

The new hospital, which will be constructed after demolishing the old building, will feature advanced facilities.

These include two basement parking facilities, a CT-MRI unit, and radiology and oncology departments, as well as units for microbiology, clinical pathology, molecular chemistry, and biochemistry.

In addition, the hospital will have a haematology unit, blood component preparation and storage areas, a laboratory for blood group serology, and a transfusion centre.

Chief medical officer, Gurgaon, Dr Virender Yadav was quoted by the publication as saying : “A series of work will be carried out before the construction work starts. The fund, which has been received by CPWD, will also be used for planning the upcoming hospital as a ‘green building’. The demolition of the old Civil Hospital building in Civil Lines is already complete. A survey of the geographical condition and the soil quality is crucial for such an important project.”
