On August 24, 2022, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to dedicate the Amrita Hospital in Faridabad. The Mata Amritanandamayi Math will oversee the 2,400-bed healthcare facility, which will be the largest private hospital in India.

According to a press release, Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma), Haryana Governor Bandaru Dattatreya, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, and other dignitaries will attend the opening.
On August 19, 108 homas will be performed in an auspicious ritual on the hospital grounds by 80 female priests and 28 male priests.

Direct employment for approximately 2,000 people

“The hospital’s benefits will go beyond providing access to the latest in healthcare technology and high-quality patient care in Delhi-NCR. From an economic perspective, the hospital will bring immediate support to the Faridabad area with direct employment for approximately 2,000 people and indirect staff opportunities for 2,000 more. Once fully operational, the hospital will have around 10,000 staff and more than 800 doctors,” the release added.

“The comprehensive transplant program offered by the hospital will be among the biggest in the country. Amrita Hospital, Kochi has pioneered surgeries with India’s first two double hand transplants and the country’s first upper-arm double hand transplant, amongst several other procedures, and this knowledge has been carried over to Amrita Hospital, Faridabad,” said Dr Sanjeev K Singh, resident medical director of the hospital.

Project will include 14-floor tower

The project in Faridabad Sector-88 will include a 14-floor tower with a total built-up size of 1 crore sq. ft. 81 specialties, including oncology, cardiac sciences, neurosciences, gastro-sciences, renal sciences, bone disorders & trauma, transplants, mother & child care, will be housed there, along with eight Centers of Excellence. The hospital will have the biggest facility in India to treat infectious diseases.

“It is one of the country’s largest green-building healthcare projects with a very low carbon footprint, and it is an end-to-end paperless facility with zero waste discharge,” the release added.

The Faridabad hospital is the second large-scale Amrita Hospital in India after the 1,200-bed Amrita Hospital, Kochi, which was established 25 years ago by the Mata Amritanandamayi Math.
