The partnership will offer secondary, tertiary care to large population of Udaipur
Paras Healthcare has partnered with JK Hospital, Udaipur with an objective of offering extended secondary and tertiary care services to the large underserved population of Udaipur and adjoining areas. Paras Healthcare plans to invest in upgrading the medical facilities and quality of clinical service in the hospital which will now be called Paras JK Hospital.
Paras JK Hospital is a 200 bedded facility which is equipped with an advanced cath lab, MRI, CT, modular OTs, dialysis and 60 ICU beds. Paras Healthcare in medium term, has plans for an additional investment outlay on setting up an advanced cancer care unit, an additional cath lab as well as an IVF unit to offer highly comprehensive treatment services to the people.
With the acquiring of the hospital, Paras Healthcare has expanded its presence to six cities across India with eight hospitals operating across these cities. The hospital will also be Paras Healthcare’s first facility in Rajasthan.
“We are very happy to commence services in Udaipur. Paras JK Hospital, Udaipur furthers our objective of establishing advanced tertiary care facilities in the under-served tier II and tier III cities of India. Cities like Udaipur have large populations but lack of quality tertiary care forces people to travel long distances to nearby metro cities, particularly for advanced healthcare needs such as cancer care. We are working to fill this void through our strategic expansions,” says Dr Dharminder Nagar, Managing Director, Paras Healthcare.
Udaipur district has a huge population of around 20 lakh. Additionally, the adjoining areas of Chittorgarh, Bhilwara, Banswara, Mount Abu, Durgapur, Neemuch and Mansor together constitute a population of up to 1 crore people. In the absence of an advanced tertiary care corporate hospital, a large number of patients requiring advanced care have to travel to Ahmedabad. Paras JK Hospital, Udaipur aims to serve this huge population by bringing quality healthcare closer to their homes.
Paras JK Hospital is a multi super speciality hospital and key clinical programmes include cardiology, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, neurology, gastroenterology, nephrology, urology and minimally invasive surgery. The hospital also has in place the finest infrastructure and multidisciplinary teams for neuro emergencies, trauma and critical care in the region and strives to create a world class trauma centre.
