Hon'ble Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu laid the foundation stone for the Amaravati American Institute of Medical Sciences (AAIMS) by unveiling a digital plaque. He said: “AAIMS should be the starting point of world class healthcare initiations in the capital region, and it should be able to provide better services than the prestigious All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences.”
“Amaravati region itself will have 13 medical colleges, in which two are of State government and one will be a Central institution — AIIMS. I am glad that people are coming to Andhra Pradesh and taking part in developing a world class capital. Our aim is to make Amaravati a world class destination where even people from America can come for getting health services. I want to make Amravati a green field capital with all kinds of amenities for the public,” the Chief Minister said.
Andhra Pradesh is redefining access-to-health services by making advanced medical treatment available at affordable price, boosting medical tourism, Chief Minister said.
Dr Navaneeta Krishna Gorrepati, an NRI doctor and chairman of the AAIMS, said, “Andhra Pradesh is left with minimum infrastructure and healthcare services after the bifurcation. In order to be part of the development of Amaravati region, me and few other NRIs from this region came back here to serve the public with best healthcare facilities.
The hospital will be built in three phases. In the first phase, a 300-bed facility will be built by the first quarter of 2019 along with five out-patient (OP) centres in Vijayawada and Guntur, where patients would be referred to the main hospital. In the second phase, another facility with 400 beds will be built and in third phase, a multi-speciality hospital with 500 beds will be built.”
