The Jammu and Kashmir Government signed an MoU with Apollo Hospitals for the establishment of a multi-specialty hospital in Jammu. Lt Governor Manoj Sinha termed the MoU another major milestone for Jammu and Kashmir. “We have embarked on a new journey of development and socio-economic growth, which will take the J&K union territory to levels never seen before,” he said. With greater industry engagement and greater investment, J&K will grow from strength to strength in the years to come. Besides providing the best healthcare facilities, the venture will bring huge direct and indirect employment opportunities for the locals,” he said, adding that more healthcare projects and MoUs are in the pipeline to ensure that the best healthcare is within the reach of every citizen of the union territory.

The MoU was signed between Ranjan Prakash Thakur, Principal Secretary to J&K government, Industries & Commerce Department and Dr. Preetha Reddy, Executive Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd, in the presence of J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha.

In the first phase, Apollo Hospitals will set up a 250-bed hospital in the region. Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd Executive Vice Chairperson, Dr. Preetha Reddy, shared its vision to establish state-of-the-art health facilities in the union territory. “We understand that the health sector creates vast job opportunities and this project will also generate more than 1,000 direct employment opportunities. That is the responsibility which all of us collectively have set forth to discharge. Apart from this, it will also become the training centre not only for doctors, but also for the nurses, paramedics, technicians, and allied healthcare workers,” she said.
