GMCH-32 trauma centre to come up in Sector 53

To deal with accident and other injury cases, the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector-32 is coming up with a `250-crore 100-bed trauma centre at ten acres of land in Sector 53. Dr Harsh Mohan, acting director-principal, said: “The boundary wall of the land has been constructed. Construction will start soon .” The land was allotted to the college in 2008, but it remained entangled in a legal battle due to encroachments. Now, the court has ordered removal of encroachments.
