H.N.Reliance Foundation Hospital inaugurated
PM Modi inaugurated the H.N.Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre in South Mumbai.
The hospital that is now the H.N.Reliance Hospital was the first general hospital built. The hospital has been active since 1925. In its 90th year, the Nita Ambani-headed Reliance Foundation has rebuilt and upgraded the hospital into a 19 storey tower with two heritage wings.
The upgraded hospital and research centre will collaborate with renowned hospitals like John Hopkins, MD Anderson Cancer Centre, Massachusetts General Hospital and the University of Southern California. Also, around 50 doctors of Indian origin from different parts of the world will also be working with the H.N.Reliance Foundation Hospital.
The hospital will reserve one-fifth of its total capacity for underprivileged persons. It will provide 10% of beds free of cost to the needy and another 10% of beds at subsidized rates.
