Dr Vishwajeet Kadam, said “We are very happy and honored that Hon’ble Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis accepted the invitation of Bharati Vidyapeeth and Medicover Hospitals to be present at the grand opening ceremony of the hospital. He took out valuable time in his hectic schedule and came here.”
Fadnavis said in his address: “I congratulate Bharati Vidyapeeth and Medicover Hospitals for launching this world-class facility. We can see a revolutionary change in the healthcare sector in terms of research, diagnostics, and technology. There are changes happening on a large scale in the healthcare sector. We need modern state-of-the-art institutions for the benefit of people. The common man will benefit due to modern healthcare facilities. The healthcare sector is shifting to medical tourism which will boost the economy.”
Chief Guest Prithviraj Chavan said, “The hospital has been started by a joint venture of Bharati Vidyapeeth and Medicover. Medicover is working in the medical field across the country. Partnering with the European group will help bring European standards of medical practice to India. In the government hospitals of Maharashtra, the number of doctors is falling short compared to the increasing number of patients. It is necessary to pay attention to this.”
Dr G Anil Krishna, chairman & medical director of Medicover Hospitals, said, “There is a need for healthcare in this part of the city. The major goal behind launching a new hospital is to improve the healthcare available in this area. Each department has highly qualified staff dedicated to providing the best possible care to their patients. To ensure all individuals have access to good healthcare services, we have planned an outreach program to reach out to people from every corner, regardless of their geographical location or socio-economic status. Providing financial assistance for those who cannot afford health services can also help bridge gaps in care caused by inadequate resources or lack of insurance coverage.”
Fredrick Stenmo stated: “The success of Medicover comes from a long-term passion for the highest quality care and services. We are ambitious about continuing our journey of expanding healthcare services.”
