Medanta, India’s largest medicity, spread over 43 acres in Sector-38, Gurgaon, will open on Sunday.
The 14-storey 1,000-crore hospital – promoted by cardiac surgeon Dr Naresh Trehan, chairman, Global Healthcare Ltd – has 1,500 beds, 45 operating theatres and over 1,000 doctors.
“Medanta will make the highest-end healthcare affordable to the masses, including the weakest sections. Our prices will be 15-20 per cent lower than the current market rate,” said Dr Trehan.
“Indian systems of medicine such as ayurveda will be integrated with Western medicine to offer mind-body solutions for chronic conditions,” he said.
Medanta has acquired Rs 300-crore worth of technology, including Brain Suite for neurosurgery, Da Vinci robotic system for minimally invasive procedures of the heart, prostrate, gynaecology and gastroenterology; a 256-slice CT (computed tomography) scanner for 3-D imaging; a molecular MRI (magnetic resonant imaging).
