New Delhi: Delhi’s Chanakyapuri area known more for its foreign diplomatic missions will very soon also be known for quality health service the area has to offer. On Saturday a state of the art specialty hospital was inaugurated. The hospital specializes in orthopedic and spinal disorders and has 250 beds.
A brainchild of Mr. Achla Diwan, its chairman and members of the Delhi Hospital society, the specialty hospital aim to attract large number of foreign patients who come to India on medical tourism. The hospital will not be out of bonds for the poor and needy as the hospital management has decided to keep 10% of the beds reserved for the underprivileged sections of the society who are not able to afford expensive medical facilities and operations.
Primus Hospital will be offering specialty services in the field of orthopedics and spinal disorders which will include services such as joint replacement, spine surgery, arthroscopic surgery, hand surgery, pediatric, orthopedics and cosmetic and plastic surgery. No hospital is complete without the support of crucial support services such as an anesthesia department, cardiologists, diabetes specialists and physiotherapy services among others so the hospital will be offering these services as well.
The OPD section of the hospital is set to start functioning from Monday onwards.
The inaugural function of the hospital was attended by many dignitaries including the Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit, Delhi health minister Yoganand Shastri and NDMC chairman, Parimal Rai.
Speaking to the media persons at the inaugural function Delhi’s CM that no orthopedic hospital exists in the NDMC area and also said that not enough attention was being paid to orthopedic care before. She praised the efforts of the hospitals management in coming up with a specialty hospital and also providing free treatment to the poor, she urged for more such facilities.
