Besides, there are very few private hospitals in the state; most of the organised private healthcare infrastructure is confined to the capital town, Patna. Patients seeking secondary & tertiary healthcare services have to go to Patna or move to other states for treatment.

Also, most of the healthcare needs of the state are being provided by the nursing homes, run mostly by individual private practitioners, which mostly cater to the general healthcare needs of individuals. Very few of these provide speciality services. Therefore, there is a great need and substantial opportunity for private sector interventions in healthcare industry of the state.

To reinforce the State Government's vision to improve accessibility to affordable, quality healthcare services and promote medical tourism in the state, the following components have been identified as priority sectors:

Areas Investment Opportunities
In-patient Health Care Facilities Specialty hospitals, super-specialty hospitals, multi- specialty hospitals, ultra-modern trauma centres
Emergency Medical Services Mobile medical units, blood banks
HRD/Skill Development Services HRD/ skill development centres (hospital services, bio-medical equipment maintenance etc.)
Manufacturing Units Medicines
Manufacturing Units-Equipment & Supplies

Medical equipment like patient monitors, anaesthesia machine, surgical microscope, electro-surgical equipment etc.

Service equipment like blood collection tubes, gloves, catheter, urology disposable products, mouth piece for endoscopes, etc.

Hospital Waste Management Services Bio-medical waste management units
Educational Institutes Grade A Nursing Colleges
