Mumbai’s Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital
Walk into the brand new 19-story Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai’s crowded Khetwadi area and you could be forgiven for mistaking the facility for a state-of-the-art hospital from one of the American medical dramas, ‘House’ or ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, for instance. The fully digitized hospital has a suite of operation rooms on every floor, some equipped with robotic arms for microscopic surgeries, and cutting-edge hybrid cath-lab (a machine that does advanced imaging and allows doctors to treat high-risk heart patients at the same time). To fulfill the aim of equal quality care, a fifth of the hospital’s capacity is reserved to treat the underprivileged. Of the 348-bed hospital, 10 percent of in-patient beds are free, and 10 percent of in-patient beds are subsidized.
