Chennai or Madras, as it was then known, is one of the earliest British settlements.

But one would be surprised to learn that the Asia´s first eye hospital was started in 1819 by the British, and it still exists as the Government Eye Hospital at Egmore, Chennai. In Tamil Nadu, like in all the other Indian States, treatment is absolutely free in all the Government Hospitals. Very completed surgeries and also simple OP treatment and are all performed here absolutely free. The Government Doctors here enjoy a very high reputation simply because of the variety of cases they get per day, and huge number of patients they see each day.

There are about six or seven major Government Hospitals in the state. Other than this list, there is a General Hospital in all the district capitals of the state. Also, the state is well equipped with Primary Health Centers in all the smaller towns.

Pay wards will shortly be introduced in Government Hospitals. The cost will be very nominal, and there will be about 200 beds. There are air-conditioned single rooms and non air-conditioned ones with four beds. A separate team of paramedical staff, nurses, and lab technicians will take care of the pay wards. This way, the government can compete with the corporate hospitals. The rates are RS 6000 for a AC single bed for 10 days, non A/C double rooms will cost Rs 3000 for ten days, and Rs 2000 for a four-bed room for 10 days.

The charges for various services are very cheap. The CT Scan charges for in-patients is about Rs 350 and for out-patients, it is about RS 500.A master check-up costs about Rs 250, X-ray and an ECG cost about Rs 20 each, and various other blood tests less than Rs 100 each.
