The government plans to invite top healthcare firms to set up hospitals and medical facilities within the hub.

Telangana is going to set up a health tourism hub, on a 500–1,000 acres of spacious land, the state’s CM A Revanth Reddy announced this recently.

The proposed health tourism hub will be located near Shamshabad, Telangana and the government plans to invite top healthcare firms to set up hospitals and medical facilities within the hub.

The CM highlighted that this initiative aims to provide comprehensive treatment for various diseases, catering to an international patient base.

He emphasized that many people from the Middle East already travel to India for medical care, and this hub would bolster Telangana's position as a premier destination for health tourism.

"We are planning a green channel from the airport to the health hub to facilitate easy access for international patients," Reddy stated, underlining the government's commitment to making Telangana a global leader in healthcare services.

Expansion Plans for Basavatarakam Cancer Hospital

During his speech, CM Reddy lauded the contributions of TDP founder NT Rama Rao and Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu in establishing the Basavatarakam Indo-American Cancer Hospital.

He announced that the state government would provide land within the new health tourism hub for Basavatarakam to expand its services, ensuring that it continues to play a significant role in providing cancer care.

Reddy noted that the hospital management had raised concerns regarding permissions, which the Cabinet swiftly resolved. This demonstrates the government's proactive stance in supporting healthcare institutions.

Vision for a Progressive Telangana

CM Reddy expressed his vision for the Telugu states to become global role models in development and welfare.

He acknowledged the competitive spirit inspired by CM Naidu's administration and emphasized the need for Telangana's ministers and officials to work diligently to propel the state forward.

"Earlier, working 12 hours a day was sufficient, but with CM Naidu working 18 hours, we must match his dedication to ensure the rapid development of Telangana," Reddy remarked, highlighting the urgency and commitment required to achieve their ambitious goals.

In a similar development, in January, the Telangana government joined hands with the World Economic Forum to set up its Centre for Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) in the State capital.

The Centre is expected to become the world's first healthcare hub, generating jobs and fostering collaboration between the government and small-to-medium enterprises.
