Chief Minsiter Nara Chandrababu Naidu will lay the foundation stone for Amaravati American Institute of Medical Sciences (AAIMS) on September 7, 2017.
The hospital with 300 bed comes up at Ibrahimpatnam in an extent of 20 acres with an investment of Rs.600 crore. The investors are about 20 Telugu NRIs.
Navaneeta Krishna Gorrepati, an NRI doctor is one of the founders and chairman of AAIMS, Mokkapati Chandra Sekhar is the vice-chairman and Chalasani Mallikharjuna Rao is the Chief Financial Officer. Speaking to press, Dr. Krishna said that the State is left with minimum infrastructure and health care services after bifurcation. ‘We, a group of NRI doctors have decided to establish a hospital for the benefit of the people of Amaravati and the State’, he said.
The hospital will be built in three phases and in the first phase, a 300 bed facility will be built by the first quarter of 2019. In the second phase, another facility with 400 beds will be built in two years after completion of the first phase. Later, a multi-specialty hospital with 500 beds will be built. A medical school will also be set up, he said.
The hospital will provide all services at affordable prices. Our aim is to free the people from the clutches of corporates who charge exorbitantly. We will have online consultation facility with a network of 2,000 doctors across the world. Experts would be contacted online as and when required, he said.
