“Our focus is on quality and ensuring that every person who steps through our doors is given the best possible attention and treatment,” said Dr Rao, speaking at the formal launch of the facility.

The facility also reflects the growing importance of Pune as a healthcare destination in Maharashtra, as well as for international patients turning to India for quality medical services.

Situated close to the IT Parks at Kharadi, the facility is fairly accessible to most people in the city. The hospital’s infrastructure along with internationally bench-marked standards of medical, nursing and operating protocols are the key components that will make it a preferred hospital in Pune.
