Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences (RMLIMS) has announced the construction of a radiology unit in its Mother and Child Care (MCH) hospital in Amar Shaheed Path, located in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, reported the Times of India.

The 200-bed gynaecology and paediatric department of the hospital lacks provisions for CT scans and ultrasound scans for its patients.

To execute the project, the local Uttar Pradesh government has allocated a budget of 1.67 crore ($203,343).

The new unit is expected to eliminate the need for patients to travel 12km from the MCH to the main campus for radiology tests.

According to the report, the construction of the new facility is expected to begin soon with completion slated in seven to eight months.

Director of RMLIMS institute Soniya Nityanand said: “To enhance the facilities in the MCH hospital, a radiology unit will be set up there.

“The unit will have CT scan, X-ray and ultrasound machines, for which the government has approved for 1.67 crore. Now the construction work will start, which is likely to be completed in seven to eight months.”

Before the project’s announcement, the institute’s administration had sent a proposal to the state government requesting 2 crore ($243,501) to establish the new facility.

Subsequently, the request was approved and the funds were released to the hospital for the project.
