US firm to set up super speciality hospital

Press Trust of India  |  Bhubaneswar 

US-based Consortium has expressed interest to set up a 1,000-bed super in Orissa at an investment of Rs 1,500 crore, official sources said.

A delegation of the consortium met Orissa's health and family welfare minister Prasanna Acharya here yesterday and discussed the proposed project.

The team led by its director told the state government that the proposed project would be completed within 18 to 24 months after getting the required land for the purpose.

The project, which was said to boost health tourism in the state, would require 100 acre of land, they said.

While suggesting the delegation to submit a Detailed Project Report (DPR), health minister Acharya said the state would examine the project seriously.

The state would sign an MoU if the DPR was accepted, the minister said.
