IGMH, Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital – Expansion

: 83 + 0 + 0 = 83

Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital, which is in memory of the late Indian Prime Minister, Smt Indira Gandhi, which was donated by the Indian Government about 10-12 years back. Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital, IGMH is the biggest hospital in Maldives the final destination in Maldives for the ill.


IGMH has good facilities to a certain limits. The doctors working here are Maldivians and Foreigners. There are a good number of

Doctors working here from India.


IGMH currently do not have facilities for some advanced treatments and mostly the patients need to go abroad for getting specialists opinion and major surgeries. Mostly the Maldivians who need to go abroad prefer to go to India , Sri Lanka, Singapore and Thailand.


Big Institutions chiefs from the neighboring countries often visit Maldives to tie up with private clinics and the Government to extend their facilities and work together. Being a very small country with a population of around 300,000 its very difficult of private Institutions to provide high end facilities to the citizens.

IGMH is building a ten storied building for extending the number of beds and some facilities. The project is expected to be over in a year or so.

You can view the status as on today – 30th October 2007 (Picture above). Construction work goes very fast in Maldives. The basement work is over and its going on full fledged.

Maldives is lacking expert treatment in Cardiology (Has a facility extended by Srichitra Institute of Medical Sciences, Trivandrum, India)

Nephrology is the other specialty which is again a need. There are lots of visiting doctors coming from different institutes abroad. They come periodically and provide consultations and basic facilities which are available in Male’ is used and for further treatment, Investigation the patient needs to go abroad.

The Government is doing their best to take care of the Health problems. The Government is also planning a Health Insurance Scheme for the citizens of Maldives which is still at inception

    • Kishore

      I am not sure to say if going through the recruitment agency is right. I don\’t understand why you need to pay such a big amount to the recruitment agencies. Have you read the contract carefully? Are you aware of all the terms and conditions of the contract. Cost of living is high here compared to India. I am not aware of the accommodation IGMH is providing now.
