The King's College Hospital has agreed to set up a 1,000-bed hospital in Amaravati immediately and make it their headquarters as they plan to set up 11 hospitals in different parts of India, Naidu said here.

They will manufacture equipment necessary for the hospitals in India itself. Not only do they want to set up a world-class hospital but also promote Health Tourism in India. The foundation for the hospital in Amaravati will be laid in the first week of June, he said.

King's College Hospital is one of UK's largest and busiest teaching hospitals with specialised work in liver diseases and transplantation, neurosciences, haemato-oncology and foetal medicine.

A 'Health City' of 6387.67 acres has been planned in the capital and land has been reserved throughout the city for healthcare infrastructure. A medical academy and research centres are planned in the capital, providing access to workforce.

Leading institutions like AIIMS and the Indo-UK Institute of Health have already shown interest in setting up hospitals in the capital, he said.
