Manipal Hospital, has opened doors for patients seeking magical help in India, urging them not to delay any further in their treatments and surgeries.
Mr. Karthik Rajagopal, COO, Manipal Hospital Enterprise, stated this on Tuesday, during a webinar organised in partnership with the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ).
The COO said, with outstanding equipment, world-class technology, and a team of experienced doctors, the hospital is delivering healthcare services to international patients while adhering to strict safety standards.
“At the same time, the Manipal Overseas Patient Care Centre provides great services for its international patients, such as visas, transportation, insurance, and many others. Despite the pandemic, the hospital has successfully handled cases of critical patients who required kidney, liver, and heart transplants. With international borders opening up, the hospital is now able to use its air ambulance services for patients in different countries.”
Speaking further, the COO said, “Manipal Hospitals has always believed in making healthcare accessible to everyone. Many patients had to postpone their treatments due to the pandemic, but now that the COVID cases in India have been brought under control and international crossings are opening, we are glad to offer our services to our overseas patients. It is now critical to recognize that delaying both emergency and routine medical care will increase the danger of the underlying diseases worsening and may result in mortality.
“With the opening of international borders, we can now continue to assist overseas patients who have had their procedures postponed due to the pandemic and travel restrictions. Nothing brings us more joy at Manipal Hospital than giving our patients a new lease on life, and we encourage our patients not to delay their treatment or surgeries.
“We are now prepared to maintain the same level of confidence and clinical excellence among international patients, thanks to our amazing team of doctors.
