India to set up integrated trauma centre network

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs in India has given its approval for setting up an integrated network of trauma centres along the Golden Quadrilateral, North-South and East-West Corridors of the National Highways. The integrated trauma centre network will be set up by upgrading the trauma care facilities in 140 identified state government hospitals. Setting up of the integrated network will ensure that each accident victim on these corridors is able to get competent medical assistance within the shortest possible time thereby saving precious lives. The 140 identified hospitals, including 20 Level I trauma centres, 40 Level II trauma centres and 80 Level III trauma centres, will be upgraded at a total cost of INR 732.75 crore during the XIth Five Year Plan period.
