This was made in the campus and along with this a new block for radiology was built. This Radiology block had five X-ray machines and facility for angiography and special invasive investigations. Madhav Dispensary was made around two quadrangle lawns so that good sunlight and ventilation in the room could be maintained. This also accommodated causality and space for medical shop was also provided.
The causality works 24 hours and OPD works from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. There is also made provision for vaccination of the kids and other and thus a section for Preventive and Social Medicine is kept. The OPD also housed the rehabilitation center for handicaps and prosthesis designing unit and a physiotherapy section under Dept. Of Orthopedics. A minor operation theatre was also made with aim of doing small surgical procedures in the OPD itself so as to save the time of patient s and prevent over burden over the main operation theatre in the main hospital. This also carries works as dressing of small wounds and injection room. A general duty room was made for the patients who just want to have their BP and weight checked under the supervision of Dept. of P.S.M.
The registration initially was Rs. 2.00 only. However with the formation of Rogi Kalyan Samitee, the registration was made Rs. 5.00. The test done in the Pathology and Radiology were also charged very nominally. There are no registration and test charges for the patients belonging to Below Poverty Line, Pensioners, Staff of Medical College and Hospital, Students of Medical College. The Rs. 5.00 collected for the contribution to the Rogi Kalyan Samitee not as a fee, for the smooth functioning of the college and Hospital.
