The SRHF is located on an important road connecting Aizawl with the southern part of the state through Lunglei city. It is about 14 Kms from Aizawl with travel time of about 20-30 min.
Construction work on the State Referral Hospital commenced in 1999 after funds were received from the Planning Commission, Government of India following approval of Rs. 40 crore for the proposal by the then Prime Minister, Mr. H. D. Deve Gowda in 1996.

Subsequently, the Hon’ble Chief Minister, Mr. Lal Thanhawla, commissioned 150 beds in 2012. It was later commissioned as a 250 bedded hospital by the Governor of Mizoram in 2016.
