AIIMS Jammu stands as the “First AIIMS facility” in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. AIIMS Jammu, in alignment with the vision of Honourable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, epitomizes healthcare excellence, aiming to bridge regional disparities, promote research, and elevate medical education standards, all within the framework of Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojna (PMSSY), showcasing a “patient centric and evidence based” healthcare model.

Conceived on November 7th, 2015, its foundation stone was ceremoniously laid on February 3rd, 2019, and its grand inauguration was graced by the Prime Minister on February 20th, 2024. This event marked a significant milestone in revolutionizing Medical Education, fostering Innovation and transforming healthcare in UT of J&K, UT of Ladakh and neighbouring states.

Envisioned as a beacon of global camaraderie, AIIMS Jammu (Vijaypur) has been meticulously crafted to embrace the spirit of a Global Village, where the aspirations of students, researchers, and patients, particularly those on the fringes of society, find solace and empowerment under the leadership of President, Prof (Dr) YK Gupta and Founder ED & CEO, Prof (Dr) Shakti Kumar Gupta.

The prestige of AIIMS Jammu lies in its ‘Trinity of Mission’ of Medical Education, Research and Patient care. In the envisaged Global Village, no one is left behind; every patient, every student, every researcher is welcomed with open arms, embraced by the warmth of compassion and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.

The institute is authorised with 750 beds including 193 ICU beds. It will have 50 departments with 18 super-specialities. For patients, it stands as a stronghold of unparalleled healthcare provision, embellished with the finest facilities and enhanced with state-of-the-art infrastructure, where cutting-edge technology works in synergy with a devoted healthcare cadre, all poised to usher in a new era of healing and well-being. Beyond the Institution’s boundaries, through the outreach activities, telemedicine and technological innovations, it extends its reach even for those who find themselves at the farthest reaches of society’s embrace.

To nurture the minds of future medical luminaries, it provides an unmatched “haven for education”, where the corridors resonate with timeless knowledge and where students are sculpted into paragons of medical excellence. Here, smart lecture theatres ignite intellectual curiosity, state-of-the-art laboratories cultivate the seeds of exploration, and simulation lab facilities refine abilities with exactitude. A digital library, open round the clock, beckons seekers of knowledge, while mentors, ever-present, stand ready to guide each step of the journey.

For researchers, it extends an olive branch of collaboration, bridging disparate disciplines within the realm of medicine and fostering alliances with traditional healing modalities, such as AYUSH. Here, the ivory towers of academia converge with the bastions of technology, management, and industry, creating a crucible of innovation where “ideas are crafted, concepts are shaped and dreams elevate”. International partnerships further enrich this tapestry of exploration, weaving together threads of knowledge from across the globe. AIIMS Jammu endeavors to achieve “complete healthcare digitalization” within a year, progressing through four significant milestones.

AIIMS Jammu demonstrates its commitment by providing a “green and eco-friendly” comprehensive township with diverse amenities and services, fostering staff satisfaction and productivity. AIIMS Jammu underscores “women empowerment”, through strategies including equal opportunities, supportive work environments, gender-sensitive policies, and specialized leadership programs.

In its noble mission, AIIMS Jammu, an Institution of National Importance, extends an integrated “One Campus” solution to the world with a compelling message of unwavering hope, profound trust, and relentless progress to every student, researcher, and patient within its embrace.

With its unique infrastructure, exceptional talent, and forward-thinking approach, AIIMS Jammu stride towards a healthier and vibrant future, where quality healthcare is not just a privilege but a right for all.
