Next month, at Singaperumal Koil on the Chennai- Trichy Highway, a 24/7 trauma care centre will be opened. It is now said that the trauma care centre would have 12 medical professionals working in shifts to stabilise patients. Later on, the patients would be shifted to Chengalpet Govt Medical College Hospital or to Tambaram Govt hospital for further care.

Various important activities that the medical team would be carrying out on the patients are bleeding controlling, vital organs stabilisation, securing fractures etc. This would help the patients to travel another 30 to 60minutes to advanced care centres.

Each year, about 20 accidents take place on the 4km stretch between Singaperumal Koil and Mahindra City. After the road has been widened to 6 lanes, the rate of accidents has increased.

It was brought out by a local activist Mr. G. Ganesh that vehicles moving at speeds of 100kmph to 120kmph create many issues for the residents who cross the highway on foot and on bikes etc. He threw light on how the trauma centre was completed 10 months back itself but due to the lack of staff the opening was delayed.  Information gathered is that in June personnel and equipment from ECC at Injambakkam would be shifted to this new trauma care centre on Chennai-Trichy highway. This was according to a senior officer.

The new trauma centre was constructed with an amount of Rs 4cr funded by the Union government and it would have 108 EMRI staff.
