The new block of the Woraiyur PHC will predominantly be a storage area with a bed storage room, staff room, and medical storage room apart from a pharmacy and a toilet complex. The plan has been approved by the National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) and will cost ₹99 lakh, according to a corporation official. “The total built-up area will be 2,020 square feet and the work will be completed within a year,” he added.
As complaints about the condition of the building were raised, the civic body took immediate action, the corporation official said. “A new block for maternity health was set up at a cost of ₹1.42 crore nearly two years ago. After the construction of the new block, the maternity health wing will also be put to use,” he said. The maternity health block still has some pending work, especially roofing.
