Emergency medical care at Chennai Central

06 Nov

Chennai Central, the most important rail hub in the city, has limited medical facilities. This is now set to change with Apollo Hospitals opening a round-the-clock medical emergency care centre at the station.

It will be manned by a team of emergency physicians and paramedical staff. Located in the main block adjacent to the Station Master’s room, the centre will have a battery-operated ambulance buggy for transporting people from platforms for immediate medical attention. Also an Advanced Cardiac Life (ACL) support ambulance with a nurse and driver trained in administering first aid would be available permanently at the station, hospital representatives said.

A staff member said the centre would be able to provide commuters immediate care and if required, patients would be shifted to a hospital. Anne Marie Moncure, CEO, Southern Region, Apollo Hospitals, inaugurated the care centre.
