KGMU spokesperson Dr Sudhir told India Today, “We have sent a proposal to build a 200-bed trauma center at King George’s Medical University. We are hopeful that we will get a nod from the concerned authorities to construct the trauma centre. The old and dilapidated portion of the building at KGMU will be razed and foundation stone for the new building will be laid.”

At present, KGMU has 450 beds but, seeing the rise in the number of patients, the authorities have taken a call to expand the facility. The trauma center at the hospital is generally fully occupied due to a huge rush of patients. The hospital administration has sent a proposal to construct a 200-bed trauma center which may be accepted soon.
