Triad were commissioned by the Medical Benevolence Foundation of Texas, USA who were the managing donor for this project, and which was partially funded by ASHA/USAID.
The Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Centre has a wide catchment area and provides diagnostic and surgical in-patient facilities for a range of orthopaedic conditions. The Out Patients Department acts as a screening department for cases and is supported with diagnostics (X-Ray and laboratory) and pharmaceutical facilities. Two operating theatres with an associated CSSD and 35 ward beds are a key component to the project. These are also supported by a Physiotherapy Department and an Orthopaedic Prosthetics Workshop. On-site housing and nurses’ hostels have also been constructed as part of this project.
Funds for the project were limited and tight cost control were exercised. The core of the project, the main hospital and the Out Patients building, were constructed for one million dollars, exclusive of fees and taxes.
The project was handed over to the client in June 1998.
