King’s College Hospital, one of the UK’s largest teaching hospitals, will soon set up a 1,000-bed world-class medical facility in Andhra Pradesh’s new capital Amaravati, Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has announced.
“The King’s College Hospital has agreed to set up a 1,000-bed hospital in Amaravati immediately and make it their headquarters as they plan to set up 11 hospitals in different parts of India,” Naidu said here. “They will manufacture the equipment necessary for the hospitals in India itself. Not only do they want to set up a world-class hospital but promote Health Tourism in India. The foundation for the hospital in Amaravati will be laid in the first week of June,” he said.
