The State Government is going to start a 10-storeyed trauma care centre (TCC) At SSKM Hospital. This would be the second such centre, after the one at RG Kar Medical College & Hospital.
It will cost Rs 20 crore to build and will start operating by the end of this year. The government has plans to build such TCCs at all the six teaching hospitals in Kolkata, where a large number of trauma patients are admitted every year.
The centre will have all arrangements for emergency operations for road and air accident cases of severe neuro-surgical and orthopaedic injuries.
There will be facilities for pre- and post-surgery treatment for severe head injury cases.
