Medanta: Reigning as Mother of all Super Speciality centres
NEW DELHI : Almost three decades ago at the International cardiology conference held in San Diego city, world renowned cardiac surgeon and CMD at Gurugram-based medanta-medicity hospital, Dr. Naresh Trehan opined that in years to come, people from other countries would visit India for treatment of different diseases.
At that point of time, it seemed incredible to many engaged in the healthcare industry, despite the fact that Dr. Trehan operated many cardiac patients from neighbouring countries successfully.
A case in point During the period of ‘90s, Dr. Trehan pioneered single arm robotic cardiac surgery for the first time in India by successfully performing this surgery on a young girl afflicted with heart ailment from Bangladesh. Also in 1997, he blazed a trail by performing the first port access or keyhole surgery in India
However, as aptly goes the saying “seeing is believing”, Dr Trehan’s dream project and vision of setting up world class multi-superspeciality centre, medanta-medicity—-in commensurate with standards of Mayo clinic, John Hopkins and Cleveland—-has already been translated into reality.
Being reckoned among world’s top five medical institutes, it is now competing with the best in the world in terms of standards, technology and quality. And what he had spoken decades ago at San Diego’s conference had proved true.
What bears testimony to it is that people from countries such as Iraq, Oman, Bahrain and most of the African countries(Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Congo, Sudan) are visiting medanta-medicity for treatment of their ailments. Not only this but also, people from Europe,Commonwealth of Independent States and SAARC countries are thronging it.
Conceived as 1600—beded(1250 beds and 350 critical beds) multi—superspeciality centre, medanta-medicity has already earned a reputation of one which can provide widest spectrum of specialized clinical care to different diseases.
It has also earned a name as one which would admit and treat even the most high risk cases. This is something which other superspeciality centres functioning on commercial lines in India would never do as it would affect their success rate.
With his mission statement of extending cutting edge technology and state-of-the-art treatment facilities to both people of India and other countries, Dr.Trehan set up a conglomerate of multi-super speciality centres across the country.
With such a mission statement, we cannot afford to turn down cases based on the chances of its success or failure,he says. Every patient is a VIP is the motto of the medanta institute. There are no symptoms of VIP syndrome for a particular patient in the Institute.
At every stage, the interests of each patient and his family is kept foremost in mind whether he is poor or rich. And this motto seemingly leads the patients to instill “complete faith” in Dr. Trehan and his team of doctors.This obviously helps them in their fast recovery.
Patna-based 300—beded multi-superspeciality medanta-jayprabha centre, which is to be operational in year 2020, is going to carve a niche of its own with its highest standards of treatment facilities for diverse therapeutic fields such as cancer, bone marrow transplant, kidney transplant, cardiac care, gastro-enterology, endocrinology, neuroscience, orthopaedic, trauma and
emergency services. According to Dr. Trehan, doctors working in medanta-jayprabha would be imparted best technical skill, education and training at par with that of those who are already serving medanta-medicity in Gurugram. Committed to provide highest-end healthcare to weaker sections in Bihar, he had reserved 25 percent bed for them.
