Apollo Hospitals, Bilaspur was established in October 2001 when it was the first multi-specialty tertiary care hospital in the state of Chhattisgarh. The 300-bed hospital (including 50 bedded ICU) is set on a lush green of 19 acre-campus. Healthcare in Chattisgarh is pretty backward and only handful of hospitals provide quality healthcare, Apollo hospital is one of them says Dr.Saima khan who is pursuing DNB Anesthesiology here .
