Our Honourable CM Sri YS Jagan Mohan Reddy thought of this idea for having an exclusive super specialty hospital for the sake of children in Andhra Pradesh.

The Bhoomi puja towards the construction works for the Children's Hospital will be done over the hands of AP CM before November 14 and the paediatric services will commence simultaneously from the same day in the Old Hospital Block in BIRRD till new the building is constructed. Once the Hospital is established in Tirupati, Cardiac and Bone Marrow transplantation surgeries will be taken up", he added.
