Rajkot AIIMS Launch on 25th: Bringing Comprehensive Healthcare to Your Doorstep

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Dream Project, the first AIIMS in Gujarat, is taking shape in Rajkot. The Outpatient Department (OPD) services have been operational for the last two years, and from February 26 onwards, Inpatient Department (IPD) services will also commence. On February 25, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the AIIMS in Rajkot, marking the beginning of the final preparations for the inauguration of the Prime Minister’s Dream Project. The AIIMS will utilize modern machinery to provide comprehensive care to patients, ensuring that patients do not have to travel outside Gujarat for treatment.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the AIIMS in Rajkot on February 25. Following this, Rajkot, along with the entire Saurashtra region and Gujarat, will have IPD services available at Rajkot AIIMS. A total of 190 doctors and 318 nursing staff will be deployed to provide healthcare services to patients. The inauguration will feature 250 IPD beds, including 25 ICU beds. Alongside the 250 beds, operation theaters, CT scans, X-rays, MRI machines, and other equipment will be available, subject to technical checks and licensing processes, ensuring comprehensive facilities for patients when IPD services begin. Emergency services, including those for heart attacks and accidents, will be attended by medical teams, with two ambulances currently operational and plans to increase to five in the future. Following this, Rajkot AIIMS will provide 23 different types of medical services to patients in the near future.
