GHAZIABAD: The poor will be able to get subsidized treatment at the hospital.

EWS patients in Ghaziabad and nearby areas will soon get subsidized health cards to avail healthcare benefits with the inauguration of an international standard ICU at Atlanta Hospital in Ghaziabad on November 13, 2017.

Inaugurating the new facility, Union Minister of State for Health, Ashwini Kumar Choubey, said “The launch of subsidized health cards will be a benefit for EWS patients as all the quality services will be available to them at CGHS rates.”

He said, “Patients had to earlier commute to distant hospitals, which led to delay in timely treatment increasing the risk of complications. But now, by the setting up the advanced ICU at Atlanta Hospital, the emergency and critical care services will be provided to the people of Ghaziabad at their doorsteps.”

The minister added that the need for top critical care unit at reasonable price for all is now fulfilled with the launch of the ICU. This will save many patients from dying due to the non-availability of beds and non–affordability of treatment.

Speaking on the occasion, BJP leader Sudhanshu Mittal said,“The hospital has taken a good initiative for the society. With this ICU being made available at affordable cost with best in class quality health care, patients from all income groups will be at ease to get emergency treatment without bother. Lack of sufficient ICU beds in the region will now be supported by the new 25 bedded ICU at Atlanta Hospital benefiting the patients.”

Dr Amit Tyagi, Managing Director, Atlanta Hospital said, “With the launch of subsidized health cards, the patients from economically weaker section will be at an added advantage. All the hospital facilities being made available at Government approved rates, people from economically weaker section will be benefitted the most.”

Dr Ravinder Singh, Managing Director, of the hospital said, “The world-class ICU at Atlanta hospital will be a demonstration for improving the length of stay, cost-effectiveness, mortality and morbidity.”
