Nightingales Home Health Services, a Medwell Ventures company, which has pioneered the speciality-led home healthcare service delivery, announced its entry into Mumbai. After successfully establishing a deep presence in the Bengaluru and Hyderabad markets, Nightingales has established its first branch at Nariman Point in South Mumbai. A multidisciplinary and experienced team will provide comprehensive healthcare services at home including visits by doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, respiratory therapists and wound care therapists. Nightingales has established specialised protocols for management of patients with strokes, COPD, Congestive heart failure, diabetic wounds and musculoskeletal issues at their home.
Vishal Bali, Co-founder & Chairman, Medwell Ventures, said, India is going through a transformation in its healthcare delivery ecosystem and speciality led home healthcare services with a focus on chronic diseases will play a key role in this transformation. Heart diseases, COPD, Strokes, Cancers and Diabetes are 60 per cent cause of mortality in the country. Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs) scale to become chronic diseases and currently account for 40 per cent of all hospital stays and 35 per cent of OPD visits. Our model of home health care through Nightingales aims to reduce recurrent hospitalisation of patients with chronic diseases by devising personalised care plans for their management at home. NCDs and neurohealth issues will cost India $4.58 trillion by 2030 and will cause huge health affordability issues.
Nightingales currently provides deep coverage through its network of 5 branches in Bangalore and 4 branches in Hyderabad. Some of its branches also provide on-site physiotherapy services in conjunction with home physiotherapy to provide patients with the continuum of care.
