In an interaction with Bomi Bhote, CEO, Ruby Hall Clinic, Rachita Jha, ENN, finds out more on the launch of new boutique hospital in Pune
Please share with us your vision for the Wanowarie Hospital.
We have recently inaugurated our new facility – a multi-specialty hospital having 120 beds including a 22-bedded critical care unit. The reason to launch a new set-up was that we were looking out for a separate hospital that caters to our medical tourism patients, giving them exclusive services and insulating them from the general patients that come at our main hospital. Thus our Wanowarie hospital is typically for individuals, who want to avoid crowd, want exclusivity and experience luxury amenities and comfort. Our Catch line is ‘We add comfort to CARE’. So we take one step ahead.
The facility also has modular stateof- the-art operation theatres, chemotherapy day care unit, surgical day care suite, dialysis lounge, endoscopy suite, cathlab and radial lounge, sports medicine, physiotherapy and rehabilitation unit among other services.
Fully digital systems of electronic medical records, real-time access to reports of patients, radiology imaging systems that provide transcribed reports, round-the-clock monitoring in patient rooms, easy registration and digital surveillance are also provided at the facility.In future, we aim to strengthen our focus and expertise in obesity surgeries, breast clinic, cosmetic surgeries, robotic surgeries, foetal medicine, minimal invasive surgeries among others.
Tell us the details of the latest achievements and upgradation on the cards.
We have recently got a US certificate for Centre for Excellence for our Bariatric surgery unit and Centre for Excellence for Cardiology Unit. This was a pleasant surprise for us, as the respective organisations got in touch with us for the certification. They have been tracking us for the last five years, and based on their feedback from the patients and consultants the recognition was given to us. We have also won many awards and accolades for our Cancer hospital and are now taking a leap into the next generation of cancer treatment by setting up a dedicated cancer hospital at AmanoraPark in Pune, where we already have land available.
Please share your views on scope of improvement for healthcare scenario in West India.
We need to have quality infrastructure that offers health for all its patients. The government should strengthen its programmes and processes to ensure every patient gets the best of healthcare. Also the universal challenge of having quality doctors and nurses on-board is a challenge. Retention is a challenge. We have strong expectations from the new government to extend support to healthcare infrastructure and disease programmes in future.
What is your plan for this financial year?
This year, we want to take the Wanowrie hospital in full capacity, and hope to attract many patients from overseas under our medical tourism programme. To cater to the unique needs of overseas patients we provide multiple international cuisines, foreign language interpreters, trained nurses and international tie-up with foreign hospitals, etc.
