PM Modi inaugurates Amrita Hospital in Faridabad, estimated to be built at Rs 6,000 crore

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday inaugurated Amrita Hospital in Faridabad, which is being constructed at an estimated cost of around Rs 6,000 crore and aims to boost the availability of modern medical infrastructure in the National Capital Region (NCR).

The hospital management has said that following the model of Amrita Hospital, Kochi, the Faridabad Hospital provides free or cheap treatment in emergency cases to financially disadvantaged patients.

Managed by Mata Amritanandamayi Math, the super specialty hospital will be equipped with 2,600 beds, of which 534 are ICUs. The hospital will soon be equipped with 81 specialized departments as well as 64 state-of-the-art operation theaters and 10 bunkers for precision-medicine oncology. It will eventually be powered by solar power.

The hospital management said in a statement that the total built-up area is over 7.5 million square feet, which includes 3.6 million square feet of hospital buildings.

The hospital complex spread over 130 acres is being said to be one of the largest green-building healthcare projects in India, with minimal carbon footprint and zero waste water discharge.

Amrita Hospital, Faridabad will not only serve the people of Faridabad and Haryana state, but will also serve the entire population of Delhi-NCR and adjoining states of UP, MP, Punjab and Rajasthan as well as other states of North and North-East India.

This is expected to reduce healthcare costs in the area, as it operates as a non-profit venture. The hospital is also emphasizing on the health care of mother and child.

It covers all pediatric sub-specialties including maternal, reproductive and fetal medicine and pediatric cardiology, cardiac surgery and transplantation, rheumatology, endocrinology, pulmonology, neurosciences, pediatric genetics, gastroenterology, pediatric orthopedics and pediatric and fetal surgery. It will also include a highly specialized multidisciplinary children’s hospital.
