Project ICCU a Success Story

Project, ICCU, a Success Story - Picture of District HospitalA demand was very often raised by local populace pertaining to establishing of full fledged Intensive Cardiac Care Unit but this demand could not be met due to resource crunch. In a meeting of Rogi Kalyan Samiti in 1999 this demand was again raised then the incumbent collector Mr. Mohd. Suleman felt that this demand of local populace is genuine and could be met by only if Rogi Kalyan Samiti raises the resources on its own. To accomplish this Herculean task it was decided to construct shopping plaza on valuable commercial land of hospital which was under unauthorised possession of encroachers.

The RKS felt that by removing this unauthorised occupation the land could be utilised to construct shops, which if leased out, could provide the necessary resources for the purchase of new equipments and for the establishment of an intensive care unit at the hospital. The economics of the project were visualised to be as follows :-

  • 39 encroachments have to be removed and rehabilitated elsewhere
  • 46 shops could be constructed and auctioned on temporary lease with rental and renewal facilities to raise Rs. 1.15 crores.
  • Rs. 30 lakhs were to be spent on construction of shopping plaza
  • R. 70 lakhs on construction of ICU building and purchase of necessary medical equipments
  • The remaining amount along with an anticipated Rs. 15000 as rental per month was to be used to upkeep of staff & equipments.

The proposal was sent to health department for approval. The bylaws of RKS were amended to implement the proposal permission from Government was granted in Jul 1999 and NOC from Town & Country Planning and Municipality were obtained. The construction of 46 shops was started in Jul 1999 and construction for ICU started in Aug 1999.The shopping Plaza & ICU were complete in 4 months record time. The 46 shops were auctioned for total 110.71 lakhs. The construction cost for 46 shops was Rs 31.25 lakhs.Thus the samiti had a net income of Rs 79.46 lakhs . Out of this Rs 19.07 lakhs have been used in construction of ICU building and medicines and modern equipments including Colour Doppler, TMT have been purchased. A balance amount of Rs 11.5 lakhs is available with the RKS, in addition to a recurring income of Rs 13800 from rents which will increase by 25% once in 3 years.
