Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently inaugurated India’s biggest paediatric Heart hospital in Gujarat attached with UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre.
The Prime Minister also inaugurated some other projects, including ‘Kisan Suryodaya Yojana’ for the farmers in Gujarat and a mobile application for telecardiology at Ahmedabad Civil Hospital via video conferencing.
The heart hospital would prove to be like a boon for patients of heart and lung failure in Gujarat, many of whom cannot afford the cost of organ transplant. U.N Mehta Institute will now become India’s biggest hospital for cardiology in addition to being one of the select few hospitals in the world with a world-class medical infrastructure and medical facilities.
The Institute is currently undergoing expansion at the cost of Rs. 470 crores. The number of beds will increase from 450 to 1251 after the completion of the expansion project.
