The government will set up a new mother-and-child centre at Sree Avittam Tirunal (SAT) Hospital in Thiruvananthapuram. The centre will be constructed using Rs.80 crore from the National Rural Health Mission.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy would lay the foundation for the centre on Thursday at the Government Medical College Hospital, Vice Principal of the college K.R. Vinaya Kumar said.

At a press meet on Wednesday, he said the need for a separate mother-and -child centre was felt as the hospital had been receiving highly complicated gynaecology and neo-natal cases from across the State after it was made a referral hospital. In recent years, a 20-bed paediatric intensive care unit, surgical units in neurology and nephrology for children, and a play area for children, had been constructed at SAT, Superintendent K.E. Elizabeth said.
