The hospital is the first LEED certified building attaining Gold Certificate in north India. What does that mean?
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), is a certification programme that denotes how “green”, or compliant in terms of energy conservation, water usage, air quality, and building materials; a building is over the course of its construction and thereafter. LEED certification comes in four levels. LEED – Certified buildings, silver buildings, gold buildings, and platinum buildings. Green building is a holistic concept that starts with the understanding that the built environment can have profound effects, both positive and negative, on the natural environment, as well as the people who inhabit those building. Green building is an effort to amplify the positive and mitigate the negative of these effects throughout the entire life cycle of a building. LEED-certified buildings are resource efficient. They use less water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a bonus, they save money. The design has been done by Mr. Manu Malhotra, RSMS.
Uttar Pradesh has a huge population of poor people who cannot afford quality healthcare. How will Medics Super Specialty address this challenge? Is there any plan in place for treating poor people from the state?
Yes, there is a clear cut policy decision at the level of board that none of our patients will get compromised treatment, owing to their socioeconomic status. We have tied up with doctors, pharmaceutical companies and bigger NGOs to ensure the same. Many innovative moves are also planned in the form of economic wards and cross subsidy models.

Being Uttar Pradesh’s biggest hospital, Medics Super Speciality will also have big challenges in terms of managing workflow. How do you see emerging technologies helping you to manage such challenges?
Management as per the word is self-explanatory. What Medics intends to do is seamless management. The only way that can be achieved is by having the right team. Medics has invested immensely in bringing all healthcare personnel together as a team. The different teams are not micromanaged but have been empowered to become efficient leaders of the future.
