Cooper Hospital

Cooper Hospital was started in 1969 as a maternity home before it was converted into a full-fledged general hospital in 1970. The hospital underwent massive reconstruction after the original building was declared unfit for use in 1999. The new upgrade, at a cost of ₹321 crores, includes more beds, as well as systems for rainwater harvesting and sewage treatment. The new hospital design includes an infection control design to prevent doctors from contracting tuberculosis while on duty.
