AIIMS is the vision of the Hon’ble ex-Prime minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee who decided to give to the nation six regional AIIMS with the mandate to provide the most modern healthcare to the last man in the queue at affordable cost. AIIMS Patna was created by the ordinance dated 16th July, 2012 and then the Act (Amendment), 2012 on 2nd July, 2013. In all, 6 new AIIMS have been created and taken care by the PMSSY (Prime Minister Swasthya Surakhsa Yojana). The work started in 2010 with construction in six packages by the Project Monitoring Unit of the MoHFW and is referred to as AIIMS project. The project management at individual sites was done by a Superintending Engineer on behalf of the MoHFW, the DPR consultant, the project consultant and the contractors till date. Recruitment of faculty for all six AIIMS was undertaken by the MoHFW being coordinated by AIIMS Patna from November, 2011 which processed six thousand five hundred online applications for 546 posts in Six New AIIMS by September 30th 2012. The institute is also in the process of recruiting more faculty and starting new departments.
