Agartala, Dec 27: The Tripura government has decided to sign an MoU with the Kolkata-based GPT Health Care Pvt Ltd for setting up a 100-bed super-speciality hospital at Agartala.

State Health Minister Tapan Chakraborty said here today that the Tripura government would provide 3.5 acres of land on the outskirts of the city on 99-year lease for the multi-facility hospital at a cost of Rs 40 crore.

Mr Chakraborty said modern health care facilities, including trauma centre, orthopaedic and arthroscopic joint replacement, neurology, nephrology and urology along with ICCU, would be set up in the hospital.

''As part of the mission to expand modern heath care facilities in the state, we will be setting up the hospital on Public-Private-Partnership model,'' Mr Chakraborty said, adding that even after establishing two medical colleges, the healthcare facilities in the state were not adequate, which prompted the state government to go for the venture.
