Durgapur hospital

The Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital group of Devi Shetty will manage a 1,000-bedded hospital in Durgapur.

The promoters of the hospital — Synergy, SPS and Mani groups — said the hospital would be upgraded to a medical college. The first phase will have 150 beds. The Rs 500crore project, IQ City Health and Knowledge Campus, will also have a dental college, hospital management institute, nursing and paramedical training colleges and allied health sciences institute.

“We have the expertise to manage hospitals but don’t have funds to build one in Durgapur,” said Shetty. “We have been managing hospitals set up by other groups,” the cardiac surgeon added.

“The hospital will be operational in three months. Then we’ll apply for the licence for medical college from the medical council,” said Sanjay Jhunjhunwala of the Mani group.
