The Delhi government is set to built 12 new hospitals with total bed strength of 2,900, Health Minister A.K. Walia said Friday.

"The process to start the construction of hospitals in Dwarka (750 beds), Vikaspuri (200 beds), Madipur (200 beds), Jawlapuri (200 beds), Ambedkar Nagar (200 beds) and Sarita Vihar (100 beds) has been initiated. The formalities are underway for the remaining six hospitals," Walia said.

He speaking while laying the foundation stone for a health centre in Shakarpur in east Delhi. Area MP Sandeep Dikshit was also present.

Walia said the health centre would be constructed in a year at a cost of Rs.eight crore.

"It will provide OPD consultation, free medicines, basic investigations, immunisation and referral services to government and 42 major private hospitals providing free treatment to the poor," he said in a release.
