Sep 4, 2021, Christian Medical College Vellore is building a new multi-specialty hospital and teaching facility at Kannigapuram, 12 km from the main hospital in Vellore. During the first and the second waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, parts of the hospital were temporarily opened up to care for COVID patients. The services that will move to the Kannigapuram Campus include those disciplines that attract a large number of patients from outside Vellore. This will enable us to serve our patients better – both in the new facility and in the main Vellore campus. Neurosciences, Cardiopulmonary sciences, Integrated Cancer Care, Renal sciences, Haematology, Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Hepatobiliary Surgery, transplant services and a multilevel Intensive Care are planned to move in the first phase of development. The new campus will also be home to a Level 1 Trauma Care Centre, the only one in South India, which will care for trauma patients, especially road traffic accident victims. Presently, the hospital is nearly complete and the residential areas, being occupied by medical personnel. When fully built, the self-sufficient campus will have various amenities including a low-cost residential facility for relatives of patients.
