Fortis Healthcare group has inaugurated the Rs4.5bn ($83m) Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) in Gurgaon, India.

The 450-bed hospital will have 400 doctors and over 1,000 nurses in the first phase and will consist of 1,000 beds when fully operational.

FMRI will offer cardiology, orthopedics, organ transplant, stem cell therapy, robotic surgery, and cosmetic surgery services.

Fortis Healthcare executive vice chairperson Shivinder Singh was quoted by the Hindustan Times as saying that the new hospital is not just about curing, but about healing patients.

"Therefore, its design will give visitors a warm welcome unlike conventional facilities that look scary," Singh added.

"The first phase has been launched and the unit will be functional by January 2013. An emergency ward will also be opened by then."
