Toyota Kirloskar to setup Community Health Centre in Bidadi, will offer healthcare to the locals
Toyota Kirloskar will be setting up a new Community Health Centre in Bidadi. This centre, built with an investment of Rs. 120 million, will cater to more than 120,000 people with its healthcare facilities. CHCs are facilities run by the Government of Karnataka to provide affordable and comprehensive primary and preventive medical, dental and mental healthcare. TKM is making the above-mentioned investment for constructing a new two-storied building within the existing CHC premises in Bidadi on the Bangalore-Mysore highway. Construction of the new CHC is likely to be completed in the next 24 to 30 months. The new CHC facility, when ready, will also benefit highway accident victims.
Under its CSR initiative, TKM will also invest in building outpatient rooms for paediatrics, OBG, anaesthetics and dental specialities. The CSR project involves creating injection, optometrist, X-ray, recovery and immunizations rooms, wards, different laboratories, pharmacy, staff rooms, meeting hall and OPD registration counters etc. TKM will provide furniture, fixtures, and electrical systems as well for the proposed CHC. While TKM will develop and construct the new facility, it will be maintained by the Health Department, Government of Karnataka following a handover from TKM under a public-private collaboration effort.
"Healthcare facilities are of utmost significance as individuals belonging to all age groups and backgrounds need these facilities. The Government of Karnataka has placed top priority on providing citizens access to good health care infrastructure. We are glad that responsible corporates like Toyota have been consistently supporting the creation of quality healthcare infrastructure to serve the community in rural Karnataka. Efforts like these will help in bridging the gap in the healthcare system thus preventing chronic illnesses and promote a healthy lifestyle." commented, C N Ashwathnarayan, Hon'ble Deputy Chief Minister.
