Narayana Health City
Why investing in Jaipur: The hospital is part of the
group's plans of creating large health city in every state capital. Said Dr
Devi Shetty, CMD, Narayana Health City, "We aim to reproduce the model
of Narayana Health City in Kolkata, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Raipur, Jamshedpur, Bhopal
and Delhi." Each of these health cities will have a 1,000-bed heart hospital
and another 3,000-4,000 beds for other specialties like cancer, women and children,
neurology etc. These facilities are primarily developed for the working class
and poor people of the region who are otherwise availing medical facilities
in over-crowded Government hospitals. Our experience at Narayana Health City
at Bangaluru convinced us that a complex heart surgery can be done at a low
cost and we can still remain financially viable," added Dr Shetty. "Growing
demand for quality and affordable healthcare and with the Government's focus
on financing healthcare delivery model for the masses and also, the fact that
there is no hospital of this scale in Jaipur, we wanted to expand in Northern
India," adds Sayani. The group has taken another 35-acre plot on the Ajmer
Road to build a medical college.
About architecture: Contemporary architecture with
vernacular designs to showcase regional attachment.
Vision: "Our vision is affordable quality healthcare
to the masses worldwide and mission is our dream of making quality healthcare
available to the masses worldwide. To make the dream a reality we commit ourselves
to being a tertiary care referral centre for complex medical and surgical problems,
developing a health city model, to be replicated nationally and internationally
and excelling as an education, training and research centre in medical, paramedical
and allied specialties," says Sayani.
USP of the project: Multi-specialty, quality and affordable
Centrally air-conditioned: Yes.
About technology that is latest in the area: Telemedicine.
Environment-friendly measures: "Care has been
taken at the architectural phases by using latest technology and environmental
friendly designs to ensure to minimise the consumption of resources for running
the hospital," says Sayani.
Number of clinicians and non-clinicians to be hired:
For 500 beds, the total HR strength is 1,500, consisting of 100 doctors, 1,200
nurses / paramedical staff and 200 administrative staff.
Ways to market it: "In line with the vision of
Narayana Hrudayalaya to reach out the masses, marketing efforts will be focused
on community outreach programmes, rural health initiatives, involvement of primary
healthcare centres, telemedicine setup and partnering with the Government for
micro health insurance scheme," says Sayani.
Future plans of the hospital: Phase two of the project
would make it 1,000 beds at a cost of Rs 250 crore.
