The MGM hospital was established on November 14, 1961. It was undertaken by the Government of Bihar in the year 1979. Since 2010, the college has been affiliated to Chaibasa's Kolhan University.

It can be recalled that in 2015, Chief Minister Raghubar Das has also launched Nutrition Mission Jharkhand (NMJ) setting a 10-year plan to fight malnutrition in the state. The government has stated a plan to serve eggs along with the midday meals for children at Anganwadi centers across the state.

Meanwhile, the development comes in the backdrop of Gorakhpur tragedy in yet another Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP)-ruled state of Uttar Pradesh, where over 60 children died within a week amid the alleged reports of disruption in oxygen supply in BRD hospital in Gorakhpur.
