Manpreet Sohal, CEO, Global Hospitals, Mumbai and Hyderabad wants his hospital to be known as Centre of Excellence in intensive care andmulti-organ transplant hospital in Mumbai

As a Centre of Excellence in multiorgan transplants, please share with us highlights of the hospital in Mumbai?

With over 2000 beds, the Group currently has nine state-of-the-art world-class hospitals at Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Mumbai and is one of the most comprehensive multi-organ transplant services in the country. The success of our hospitals is deeply rooted in the vision of its founders that each hospital in India would have various Centre of Excellence departments providing medical care. The journey at Global Hospitals, Mumbai was started with establishing the state-of-the-art liver and renal transplant amongst various other departments like gastroenterology and GI surgery and today we provide comprehensive medical care unmatched by any in western India in transplant space. We have many first to our credit, which includes a dual lobe surgery, the first in western India, where two donors donated part of their livers to save the life of one patient and another first in Mumbai where a patient underwent dual liver and kidney transplant, receiving a portion of his21-year-old son’s liver and a kidneyfrom his 49-year-old sister. It would be interesting to mention that Dr.Prof. Mohamed Rela, Director and Head of Institute of liver Transplant Programme have done a unique liver transplant surgery at Global Hospitals Chennai. One cadaver liver that could have been transplanted in one adult patient, was split and was transplanted to two adults patients This was definitely a rare, unique and the first of its kind surgery in India and only about 30 of these have been performed worldwide. With such distinguished doctors occupying the transplant space at Global, it is but natural that the programme shall reach the pinnacle of success.The facility highlights includes world class tertiary care in the main heartland of Mumbai at Parel having 15 single-shell world class OTs, 100 ICU beds, having dedicated transplant ICUs, liver ICUs, surgical ICUs, cardiothoracic and cardiac ICUs, medical ICUs, neuro ICUs and renal ICUs with staff trained to look after patients in the respective areas.

PieWhat are your views on the Union budget 2015-16 for healthcare?

Today the GDP spend by the Government of India for healthcare is still much below as compared to others countries of our population size. And the private healthcare sector addresses a major part of the medical needs of the country. This gap needs to be addressed and is possible by a innovative PPP model that makes the most of the land, infrastructure and equipment already existing with the government and the ability of private hospitals to deliver healthcare services. The private players in this partnership should be given the freedom to run the model on an economic model that is sustainable.The ease of doing business in India should be extrapolated to healthcare that will encourage more partnership from investors to join hands with government and make a big change in healthcare delivery in India.


What is your vision for the hospital for the current financial year?

Taking cue from the success of liver and renal transplant, we have plans to start heart, lung, intestine and pancreas transplants and have already applied for licences in intestine and pancreas transplant.The centre boasts of successfully runningcardiac,neurosurgery,urology, MAS and GI surgery departments and going forward would like to develop Centre of Excellence in bariatric surgery, vascular surgery,and sports medicine in orthopaedic sand neuro-intervention radiology.We will foray into oncology with both surgery and radio therapy facilities and are gearing up to offer worldclass infrastructure and equipment for the same. These will strengthen our abilities of transplant theatres, robotic theatres, cardiac theatres, orthopaedic theatres, surgical gastroenterology, neurosurgery theatres and minimal access theatres to address the needs of wider range of patients. Our expansion to oncology will be made easy as we have the best in class radiology and imaging facility with India’s first 500 slice CT scan, 3Tesla-MRI, India’s 1st, IGS 530- Cathlab with FFR and IVUS, and would be starting the bone marrow transplant,in a facility specially created to treat this disease. With a capacity for up to 400 beds, we are also looking atexpansion within Mumbai at other locations as well.

    The heart of your writing whilst appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not sit very well with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in logic and one would do well to help fill in those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be impressed.
