Tell us about the hospital’s tie-up plans to bring its healthcare services at national level.
Sarvodaya Hospital, Faridabad, is a government accredited hospital for Cochlear Implant program under Assistance to Disabled Person for Purchase/Fitting of Aids and Appliances (ADIP) scheme.
The Cochlear implant is a prosthetic device; a part of which is surgically implanted inside the cochlea. The implant has been beneficial for children and adults with severe to profound hearing loss and steeply sloping hearing loss — who do not adequately benefit from hearing aids but have an intact auditory nerve.
We have also been conducting free operations for underprivileged children availing free speech therapy for 2-year-olds. Approximately, 30 children of Faridabad availed the benefit from the surgery.
Share with us your major learning, challenges, and achievements from 2017.
The year 2017 has been great, having made few accomplishments in areas like kidney transplant, bone marrow transplant and Cochlear implant programme. We also take pride in conducting the highest number of a Cochlear implant in the State, and highest Bone Marrow transplant in the city, till date.
We are in continuous dialogue with the best of minds. We have organised a national level Oncology conference. Our engagements are focused on holistic development of the community, especially on uplifting women empowerment and addressing health issues. “Jug Jug Jiyo Beti” (long live daughter) initiative of the hospital has been initiated on similar lines.
How do you foresee the healthcare trends in 2018?
We foresee that healthcare will be dealing more with non-communicable diseases (NCDs) due to deteriorating lifestyle. The healthcare setups and the community should collaborate more to increase focus on healthy lifestyle and raise awareness to make health screening a habit.
