In a bid to amplify the healthcare services available in the city, a new 300-bed hospital will soon be established in Lucknow.

The Chief Medical Officer has requested 15 acres of land in the Chak Ganjariya area from the Lucknow Development Authority for setting up this hospital. Subsequently, the LDA has started a search program for assigning a feasible area for the upcoming project.
