According to sources Tamilnadu Health Minister C Vijayabaskar on Tuesday made another appeal to the centre to quicken the process to build an All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) hospital in the state. Meanwhile the health minister approached union minister JP Nadda with a request to build three ‘multi-super specialty’ hospitals in Thanjavur, Madurai and Tirunelveli. Furthermore, he requested Nadda to inaugurate the vaccine centre which has been built in Chengalpet with a budget of 600 crore rupees.
Accordingly the idea to bring in an AIIMS facility into the state was initially proposed by former Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, J Jayalalitha. During her tenure, the project was approved and a 5 member team had been established to determine the appropriate venue for the same. Meanwhile Madurai, Erode and Pudukottai were among the regions which were narrowed in on, Thoppur was ultimately selected for a number of reasons including its connectivity to the highway.
Previously Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami had
announced that the hospital would be built over 200 acres of land and would
have 100 MBBS seats and 60 nursing ones. Moreover the project is estimated to
cost around 1,500 crore rupees in total and an estimate of 750 beds are planned
to be set up at the hospital. Furthermore it is interesting to note that the state
of Andhra Pradesh only recent open doors to its new AIIMS institution in
Mangalagiri, though classes is presently being held at Siddhartha Medical
