India is becoming the hub of medical tourism these days. Not only NRIs but forigners are also showing interest in Indian treatments as the services are becoming world class.Corporate groups such as Apollo Hospitals Group,Wockhardt,Fortis health care,Max India paved the way for corporate organisation structure for hospitals and have successfully developed a chain of multispeciality private hospitals.But the presence of these hospitals is only in big cities.
Pushpanjali Crosslay Hospital is another feather in the cap of Indian Healthcare sector.It will be the only super speciality hospital to be opened very soon in Ghaziabad(Delhi-UP border) at NH-24.It is planned to be a state-of-the-art,world class 400-bed and tertiary care hospital.Hospital is designed to meet the quality health care needs of UP,Uttarakhand and New Delhi.
Pushpanjali Crosslay is the dream project of Dr.Vinay Aggarwal,a graduate from Maulana Azad Medical College,who is well known for his”Save the Girl Child” and “Aao Gaon Chalen” campaigns.Dr Aggarwal has a soft corner for poor families who can’t afford expensive medical facilities.For him medical profession is a mission not a business.He still remembers how his mother sold off her jewellery to make him a doctor.He told me that this hospital will facilitate quick response to any natural or man made disasters in the region as it includes Helicopter services also, which is first of its kind in India.He further added that Pushpanjali Crosslay is not receiving any grant from the govt agencies, still it will cater the medical needs of rich and poor section of society equally.I was really touched when Dr Vinay told me that the kids of construction workers who are working on the hospital site,are given free education and food in the premises itself.The efficient leadership team of Dr Vinay has Dr Vijay Aggarwal,Dr P.D Garg,Mr Sudhir K Singhal and Mr K N Bansal.
