Additional beds will solve the issue of overcrowding of patients who approach the hospital for speciality cancer treatment at a reasonable cost.
Keeping in mind the expected increase in the number of patients once this new block is fully operational, the Telangana government has taken concrete steps to improve the medical infrastructure by acquiring modern medical equipment and setting up modular operation theatres.
The state government has also decided to allot 2 to 3 acres of land near the hospital for future expansion keeping in mind the increasing number of cancer patients being referred to MNJ hospital.
The director of MNJ Hospital Dr Jayalatha said that a few construction delating works are pending and would be completed within a week.
