Leading healthcare services provider Narayana Hrudayalaya Ltd (NHL) today launched its first paediatric hospital in Mumbai to bolster its western cluster.

“We have launched inpatient services at its SRCC Children’s Hospital at Mahalaxmi in Mumbai. Operated and managed by NHL and backed by SRCC, an institution renowned for serving the needs of children from all sections of society, it is expected to be a premier super speciality, tertiary care, ‘children only’ hospital in the region,” a statement issued here said.

The hospital is designed on international standards with 207 capacity beds. It has all the paediatric super specialities under one roof including paediatric cardiology, paediatric cardio vascular surgery, paediatric neurology, paediatric neuro surgery, paediatric haemato oncology amongst others, said the release.

The hospital also has a complete rehabilitation programme which intends to take care of allied patient care services like paediatric physiotherapy, psychometric analysis, behavioural counselling amongst others, it said.

“We have made our maiden foray in Mumbai with first of its kind pure play children’s hospital following the asset-right engagement framework.

“We firmly believe that India is an underserved market for children despite the country tallying high on infant mortality and children’s population,” NHL vice-chairman, managing director Ashutosh Raghuvanshi said.

“The launch of this hospital in Mumbai is a well calibrated step in line with our group strategy to reinforce our presence across focussed regional clusters,” he said.

Narayana Hrudayalaya has a network of 24 hospitals and 7 heart centres across India and a single hospital overseas at Cayman Islands with over 5,800 operational beds across all its centres and potential to reach a capacity of over 7,100 beds.

Recently, the hospital has also entered into an agreement with Panacea Biotec to fully acquire its subsidiary NewRise Healthcare Pvt Ltd.
