Hospital gets state-of-the-art Cardiac OT
Jamshedpur, Nov. 1: Meditrina Hospitals, one of the fastest growing multi-specialty hospital chains in India is planning to expand its healthcare facilities in Jamshedpur and nearby regions by deepening and broadening its areas of expertise if corporate houses or the state government can help provide land to the Kollam based hospital.
‘We are running a 60-bed hospital in Adityapur in the adjoining Seraikela-Kharsawan district and space there is limited and would urge the Tatas and the local Member of Parliament to help provide a land and if that becomes reality we can wonders in health care facilities in Jamshedpur which is still lagging behind when it comes to quality health care treatment’, said, Dr. Prathap Kumar, Chairman & Managing Director of Meditrina Hospitals.
On the occasion Cardiac Operation Theatre at Meditrina Hospitals, Adityapur was jointly inaugurated online by AB Lall, Head, M&CVBU, Tata Motors, Dr. Prathap Kumar, Chairman & Managing Director of Meditrina Hospitals, Dr PA Deshmukh, Dr Wahid Sultan and others.
Chief Guest for the occasion, AB Lall, said, people of Jamshedpur are forced to travel to metros for any complex disease but with Meditrina hospital expanding the healthcare facilities this number would come down and those who travel to Kolkata, Vellore, Delhi to name a few will not get world class health care facilities in the city itself.
Addressing the gathering after the inauguration of Cardiac Operation Theatre at a city hotel on Wednesday, Dr. Kumar said, 90 % of the population of India lives in tier-2, tier-3 cities and rural areas where quality health care facility is must and we are soon going to open a centre in Musabani, East Singhbhum.
He informed that some of the leading super speciality hospitals in the country including Apollo and Fortis just focus on the metros. ‘With Meditrina it’s totally different, we have 7 centers across the world; 5 in Kerala, 1 in Maldives, 1 in Jamshedpur so that we can provide much affordable advanced cardiac care services including complex angioplasties and cardio thoracic surgeries to the needy and underserved patients’, added Dr. Kumar.
Since October last year, Meditrina hospital has also been partnering with the state government in providing treatment to poor patients under Mukhyamantri Gambhir Bimari Uchar Yojana, he noted.
Cluster head of Meditrina Hospital Amitav Chatterjee, said, the hospital opened its door to the steel city in 2015 and since then 1500 angiography, 600 angioplasty including 100 complex cases have been successfully done which were rejected by other hospitals. Present during the function Dr. PA Deshmukh, Dr. Wahid Sultan and Dr. Partho Choudhary also shared their views.
