Medical village scheduled for launch in Oct 2010

Frontier Mediville, the proposed eco-friendly modern medical village in Tiruvallur district, near Chennai is scheduled for inauguration on October 20, 2010.

The Rs 1,500-crore facility, promoted by Dr K M Cherian on a 360-acre campus in Elavur village, will have a national medical science park for research, training and treatment with a focus on regenerative medicine. This will supplement the proposed 1,000-bed multi-specialty bio-hospital.

The national medical science park will have an animal farm, a research block and a training centre offering postgraduate programmes in courses such as stem cell research, tissue engineering and nanotechnology. The other features include a Russian amphibian plane and helipad for emergencies, an elders' enclave and a golf course. "The place will have 100 Ph D scholars and provide employment to 3,000 people," Dr Cherian said.

He was speaking after signing an MoU with BSNL to provide telecom solutions at a cost of Rs 50 crore. BSNL Chennai Telephones chief general manager M P Velusamy said: "We will be using the latest technology such as Wi-Max and radio relay equipment to allow those in Mediville to get data on the go. It will be done using optic fibre cables so that the communication networks do not produce electro-magnetic radiation so the system will be environment friendly."

The launch of Frontier Mediville will coincide with the inauguration of the 20th World Congress of the World Society of Cardio Thoracic Surgeons to be hosted by Frontier Lifeline and Dr K M Cherian Heart Foundation in the country.
