Work Begins On Rs 200–crore project on SG Road In A’bad
Pharma major Zydus Cadila has started work on its Rs 200–crore multi super speciality hospital on SG Road in Ahmedabad this week. The 250–bed hospital is expected to be commissioned by end of 2011.
The Rs 3,000–crore company plans to set up the eight–storey hospital on a 10,000–square metre plot, which it bought from local real estate firm Ganesh Housing, in Thaltej.
A group subsidiary, Zydus Hospitals & Healthcare Research Pvt Ltd, is carrying out the project. Even as construction work commenced on last Sunday, the company has already started the exercise of roping in some of the best doctors and specialists in the different branches of medicine.
International architecture firm Burt Hill is working on the designing aspect, the source said, adding that for interiors the firm is negotiating with some of the best designers to lure foreign and NRI patients in view of medical tourism.
As a special case, the government has granted additional floor space index (FSI) to the project. When contacted, an official in the urban development department confirmed and informed that Zydus has paid for extra FSI to construct high–rise building in the restricted area.
