In addition, the Prime Minister will inaugurate the Pediatric Heart Hospital affiliated to the UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research and the Ahmedabad Civil Hospital, a mobile application for telecardiology.
The UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology is being expanded at a cost of Rs 470 crore.

The number of beds will increase from 450 to 1251 after the completion of the expansion project.
