“The entire world reveres her (Mata Amritanandamayi) but I’ve been especially fortunate that I have received Pujya Amma’s affection and blessings for the past many decades”, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his address at the inauguration of the state-of-the-art Amrita Hospital in Faridabad, Haryana.
“I’ve felt the simplicity of her heart and her vision for country. And hence, I can say that a nation with a generous and committed spiritual force like Amma is certain to rise,” said the PM. Haryana Governor Bandaru Dattatreya and Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar were also present on the occasion.
Built on a sprawling 130-acre campus with sustainability in mind, the 2,600-bed hospital has a dedicated seven-storey research block and has been constructed over a period of six years under the Mata Amritanandmayi Math. The hospital is equipped with cutting-edge technology, including a centralised fully-automated laboratory, in what will be a major boost to healthcare infrastructure in the National Capital Region (NCR).
The new super-speciality hospital has opened initially with 500 beds and is expected to be fully operational in a phased manner over the next five years. Once fully operational, the hospital with 81 specialities is billed to be the largest private hospital in Delhi-NCR and the country, its officials had earlier said. The hospital buildings will span 36 lakh square feet in built-up area, with a 14-floor tower housing key medical facilities. There is also a helipad on the rooftop.
The new mega hospital in Faridabad’s Sector 88, near the Delhi-Mathura Road, has a built-up area of one crore square feet and the campus will also have a medical college. A dedicated seven-storey research block and eight centres of excellence, including on gastrosciences, renal sciences, bone diseases and trauma, transplants, and mother and child care, are located on the campus.
The hospital has patient-centric wards and OPDs and a hi-tech, fullyautomated centralised laboratory.
