It was conceived as a referral center for high level medical knowledge by all stake holders. A proficiency center for training and research in Basic sciences, Animal sciences and .Clinical sciences. A multi-functional health care delivery center that will meet above needs, in a more welcoming, caring and comfortable hospital environment, to help patients heal better and faster, and for enhanced clinical knowledge/experience to medical students.
