Srinivas Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre has been awarded the tender to operate and maintain the existing 32-bed hospital run by union government-owned by New Mangalore Port Authority and build a 150-bed multi-speciality hospital on port land.

Srinivas Institute of medical sciences and research centre, set up by the A Shama Rao Foundation, runs a medical college and medical centre outside Surathkal in Mangaluru. It is affiliated with Bangaluru-based Rajiv Gandhi University of health sciences and is recognised by the medical council of India.

The hospital will provide health care services to port employees, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), retired personnel and their dependents as well as non-New Mangalore Port Authority patients residing in the nearby areas of the port.

The New Mangalore Port Authority’s 32-bed hospital offers OPD and diagnostic services to its patients (New Mangalore Port Authority beneficiaries).

The new 150-bed multi-speciality hospital will offer a wide range of medical services which are not available in the existing port hospital.

The project will rationalize the annual medical expenditure incurred on the treatment of port employees. It will also provide healthcare to the nearby population residing within a 5 km radius at Panambur, Baikampady, Kulai, Surathkal etc and will contribute towards the employment of specialists, doctors, pharmacists, nursing staff and other para-medical staff etc. Daijiworld
