The facility also reflects the growing importance of Pune as a healthcare destination in Maharashtra, as well as for international patients turning to India for quality medical services. Situated close to the IT Parks at Kharadi, the facility is fairly accessible to most people in the city. The hospital’s infrastructure along with internationally benchmarked standards of medical, nursing and operating protocols are the key components that will make it a preferred hospital in Pune.
A proprietary hospital information system and electronic medical record management assures error free and convenient patient records management, thereby greatly minimizing patient waiting time. “Our public healthcare system is not equipped to deal with the healthcare situation in the country. Private players, hence, have an important role in filling this gap. Moreover, Pune is also emerging as a major medical tourism destination and our endeavor is to tap in on this development by providing high-class medical care,” said Mr. Ghosh.
