Maharashtra to study PPP feasibility for medical colleges, hospitals
Mumbai: The Maharashtra government has set up a committee to study the feasibility of setting up 300-bed hospitals and affiliated medical colleges on Public Private Partnership (PPP).
The committee, comprising the Commissioner(Health Services), the Director, Medical Education and Research and Director, Health Services will help the government form a policy on the issue. It has been asked to submit its report in three months.
The government's Public Health Department, which issued a government resolution last week on this, stated that the Central government's amended rules of 2015 regarding medical colleges had a provision for setting up 300-bed hospitals on PPP.
The GR stated that the government was considering this proposal after studying, among other reports, neighboring Gujarat's Memorandum of Understanding with the Adani Education and Research Foundation to start a hospital based on the Union government's amended 2015 rules.
