A state-of-the-art cath lab and a trauma care unit are slated to become operational at the government district headquarters hospital here from Friday.

Health Minister Harish Rao will inaugurate the cath lab and trauma care unit, set up at the newly-constructed block on the premises of the hospital building with an estimated cost of ₹22 crore, hospital sources said. Transport Minister P. Ajay Kumar will accompany him.

The new block to be christened as emergency medicine wing will provide prompt emergency medical care to needy patients. A milk bank is also scheduled to be inaugurated at the Mother and Child Healthcare block at the hospital to cater to the needs of needy newborns by encouraging voluntary breast milk donation by lactating women, hospital sources added.

Mr. Rao will also lay foundation stones for two 100-bed hospitals, one in Madhira and another in Sattupalli, late on Friday.
