Mysuru: The new Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research Hospital and an advanced Trauma Centre have been constructed at PKTB premises. While the hospital has been constructed at a cost of Rs. 210 crore, the Trauma Centre has been built at a cost of Rs.25 crore to provide timely and emergency treatment.
The construction of the hospital began four years ago and it is a four-storied structure with 350 beds. At present, the 110-bedded Jayadeva Hospital is functioning from K.R. Hospital premises but lacked advanced facilities. The new hospital will have all facilities pertaining to heart including open heart surgeries.
The new hospital has four Operation Theatres (OTs), General Ward, Semi Special, Special and Deluxe Wards. Provisions for CT Scan, MRI and other facilities have been made and the staff of Jayadeva Hospital in K.R. Hospital premises, including specialists, would be shifted to the new hospital. This hitech hospital will be a boon for patients from Mysuru, Mandya, Chamarajanagar, Kodagu, Chikkamagalur and surrounding districts.
