Raipur: Chhattisgarh will get its own All
India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the next two
years.

The premier institute, which will come up here, will
cost Rs 329 crore, official sources said today.

A medical college, a hostel and a 960-bed hospital
with super specialty facilities have been planned under the
two-phase project, they said.

In 2007, the Centre had proposed to set up AIIMS-like
institutions in Patna, Raipur, Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar, Jodhpur
and Rishikesh under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojna
(PMSSY) within four years.

Once completed, AIIMS-Raipur will be the state`s
biggest government-run medical institute, where services would
be provided to patients at concessional rates, the sources
said.
