A helipad, orange garden & cycle tracks

Nagpur: All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), which is coming up at Mihan, is set to host the first-ever parking area for a helipad attached to a hospital in the city.
Incidents of policemen and paramilitary forces needing emergency medical attention in Naxalite-affected districts are frequently reported in Vidarbha. In such cases, the injured are rushed to the city through aeroplanes. They are brought to city airport and then taken to hospitals. With the provision of a helipad on AIIMS premises, the injured from other districts or adjoining states can get medical treatment at the earliest.
To have a 'city connect', it has been decided that the helicopter space will be surrounded by a sprawling orange garden to be set up in recognition with National Research Centre for Citrus (NRCC). The garden will also host an ayurveda clinic. As one enters through the main gate of AIIMS, the sprawling garden can be seen on the left side.
