Vij inaugurates Homeopathy Hospital in Ambala to promote alternative medicine

Haryana's Health and AYUSH Minister, Anil Vij, inaugurated a homeopathy hospital in Rampur village, Ambala Cantonment, marking a significant healthcare development in North India. This state-of-the-art facility, built at a cost of ₹60 lakh, is the first of its kind in the region and is expected to serve as a vital resource for residents.

The newly inaugurated 20-bedded hospital, housed in a community hall, is part of a broader endeavor. It is linked to a homeopathic medical college currently under construction with 100 seats. This ambitious project comes with an estimated cost of ₹65 crore.

Plans for medical education

Minister Vij highlighted that once the new building for the medical college is ready, the hospital will be relocated there to facilitate medical education. According to regulations, a hospital must be operational for at least two years before such a transition can occur.
