50 years old building

The OPD at Wenlock hospital was inaugurated in 1964-65 and is around 50 years old. Since its inauguration, the building has never undergone renovation and hence reached a dilapidated state. Not only was water seeping during the monsoon, even the paint of the walls had lifted off.
