Hyderabad and Delhi have decided to open “hyderabis” private clinics in three month’s time, the Hyderabad government announced on Tuesday.
The “hyDERABAD” clinics, to be operated by private companies, will be located in two areas of the city.
These are the areas of South Bank and Gopalganj.
The announcement came after an agreement was struck with Hyderabad’s chief medical officer Dr. Kunal Bhagwat and other officials, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
The clinics will be run by the state-owned Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (IIMS).
The IIMS is one of the leading medical institutions in the country and serves as the nodal agency for the government-run National Centre for Hyderabad, a medical facility run by India’s National Medical Research Institute.
The Hyderabad hospitals will be managed by the Indian Institute for Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (IIDHM), which is one step away from being fully integrated into the government’s National Health Insurance scheme.
