The hospital will cater to the needs to entire West Delhi, including Dwarka and its neighbouring villages.

At present, there is only one big government hospital in the area Deen Dayal Upadhayay, which is overburdened with more than 7,000 new patients daily.

The new hospital would provide round-the-clock emergency services, maternity services, surgical facilities, out-patient department, general ward block, air-conditioned special ward block, full super-specialty services and teaching facilities.

The hospital would be developed as per green building concept.

As per Medical Council of India norms, 150 candidates will be taken for admissions in the medical college per year. The hospital is expected to be ready and commissioned within three years.
