Nine operation theatres (OTs) will be functional in the Super Specialty Child Hospital Post Graduate Institute (SSCHPGI) in Noida’s Sector 30 from next week. SSCHPGI director, Dr Arun Kumar Bhatt, said work on the OTs was done in the past month and some beds have also been added to the hospital.

He was giving details of the expansion work done in the child hospital in the last 100 days to additional chief secretary (medical education) Dr Anita Bhatnagar Jain who visited the hospital for an inspection on Tuesday. The inspection comes with the present BJP-led state government completing 100 days in power.

Dr Jain took stock of the number of projects and initiatives carried out at the hospital in the last 100 days. In her two-hour visit to the hospital, she also interacted with patients and expressed satisfaction at the progress of work at the hospital.

Dr Bhatt also announced various expansions of the facilities available at the hospital.

“In the past 100 days, we have completed various initiatives at our hospital. A total of eight modular operation theatres (MOTs) have been added. They will be functional from next week, taking the total count to nine. Along with that, 14 beds have been added to the surgical Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and eight beds to the Cardiac Surgery ICU,” said Dr Bhatt.

“Among the eight newly added MOTs, there are three integrated MOTs from where surgeries will be telecast live through a projector system for the students to learn. Also, if the surgeons need assistance from other specialists, this facility can be used to provide help online,” he added.

Dr Jain also asked the state health department officials concerned to set up a blood bank at the hospital.
