HYDERABAD: Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute in the US has come forward to set up a branch hospital in Hyderabad at an estimated cost of `400 to `500 crore.

The proposed hospital will not only provide world-class treatment to the people here  but also provide employment to about a thousand people.

Baylor’s representatives David Brown, Subbaraju Kosuri, M Satish and others called on chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at the Secretariat here on Tuesday. They offered to set up a heart hospital with world-class facilities and latest technology in surgeries. Rao welcomed their offer and assured them of all help from his government.

Speaking to reporters later, David Brown said world-class treatment for heart ailments would be available at their proposed hospital in Hyderabad. He thanked the Telangana government for extending its cooperation.

Subbaraju said that Baylor would offer the facilities, now available at its hospital at Plano near Dallas in Texas in the US, in the Hyderabad hospital too.

Initially, the US doctors would visit the hospital here and treat patients. Later,  US-based doctors would move here permanently, he added. Satish said they required land for starting the hospital. If the government gave land, well or else Baylor Hospital would have to acquire the required land on its own, he said.
