Credihealth, India’s leading medical assistance company, has launched a first-of-its-kind 24-hour online ambulance booking service in Gurugram, Haryana. The service aims to bring emergency medical care to people’s doorstep, ensuring immediate attention to serious medical cases.
Leading Gurugram hospitals such as Medanta — The Medicity Hospital, Artemis Hospital, Fortis Memorial Research Institute Gurgaon (now Gurugram), Paras Hospital, W Pratiksha Hospital and Columbia Asia Hospital have partnered with Credihealth to be a part of this endeavour.
An independent research indicates that nearly 350-400 night-time hospital admissions are made across Delhi/NCR, and most of them are serious cases like heart attacks and trauma. Such critical situations require urgent medical attention before reaching the hospital, something most ambulances are currently not equipped to provide.
Credihealth aims to eliminate these limitations by offering Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Basic Life Support (BLS) ambulances equipped with state-of-the-art medical apparatus in partnership with hospitals.
Each ambulance carries essential equipment and medical supplies including glucometers, albuterol, defibrillators, aspirin, EpiPens, pulse oximetry, intranasal naloxone administration, splints, bandages, oxygen tanks and masks, and spinal immobilization.
“Most regular doctors are not accessible at night, but some medical conditions require immediate action. Any sort of delay can complicate the situation. This is where our team steps in. This new feature is aimed to fulfil our goal of facilitating the access to convenient online healthcare service for the common man,” said Ravi Virmani, Founder and Managing Director – Credihealth, while launching the service.
“Ensuring state-of-the-art first-response medical emergency assistance in partnership with leading hospitals is a landmark development which gives our vision of raising the standard of healthcare delivery in India a big boost. We plan to follow-up on the launch of the first phase of our 24-hour ambulance service in Gurgaon (now Gurugram) by rolling out more such services across other cities soon,” Virmani added.
Dr Sushil from Medanta – The Medicity said, “The ambulance service launched in partnership with Credihealth brings us one step closer towards responding to emergency medical needs.”
Credihealth users in Gurugram can gain round-the-clock access to an ambulance with just three simple steps. All they need to do is to visit Credihealth.com or Android App, share their location, find the nearest available ambulance, and book it. The service can also be availed through a direct phone number by calling on 8010-994-994
A fleet of 54 ambulances will be available across Gurgaon under this service. Ambulances are stationed at major areas in Gurugram including DLF CyberCity area; NH8 ; Sector 14; Palam Vihar; Sector 38; Huda City Centre; Sushant Lok Area; and Sector 51, Wazirabad.
