The centre will provide family physicians and all facilities under one roof, seven days a week
Wellspring Healthcare, under its brand, Healthspring Community Medical Centres, launched its new centre at Hiranandani complex in Powai on Sunday.
The state-of-the-art centre was inaugurated by Kaushal Mishra, MD and CEO, Tata-AIG, “The concept of providing high class primary healthcare out of a fully equipped local centre is just the right answer for the increasing need and rising population,” said Mishra in his inaugural speech. Dr IN Chatterjee, ex-Director – Finance, ONGC, ex-Group President – Finance, Hinduja Group and Ex-MD, Jindal Grilling was also present on the occasion.
“The Powai centre is poised to benefit residents, at large, across the eastern and western suburbs with Powai being located centrally. Today, I can proudly say the centre has been blessed by some of the best professionals in the field,” said Dr Gautam Sen, Chairman and Co-Founder, Wellspring Healthcare. “Healthcare is a rapidly growing sector in India, but continues to be very fragmented. With the imminent retirement of an entire generation of family doctors, many patients do not know whom to trust or turn to in their time of need,” he added.
The Healthspring centre, located at Galleria Mall, Hiranandani Complex, Powai, boasts of well-appointed, modern and healthy waiting space, gives access to proprietary emergency response system, has experienced nurses and well-trained support staff, a well-equipped treatment room for minor procedures, relevant diagnostics (radiology and pathology) facilities, offers home visits by well-trained medical team and electronic medical records for all patients. Healthspring is also tied-up with specialists and hospitals across Mumbai to provide higher-level care when necessary.
Emphasising on online medical records and practicing care, Dr Sen said that it incorporates the latest international protocols and evidence based medicine. “We envision Healthspring as the institution patients can trust over all others, in every situation: a modern and ethical family doctor set-up supported by a 24×7 call centre, in-house pharmacy and pathology laboratory, online medical records – and practicing care that incorporates the latest international protocols and evidence based medicine,” Dr Sen said.
Kaushik Sen, CEO and Co-Founder, Wellspring Healthcare, said that Healthspring has a complete patient-centric focus, which has driven the careful design of community medical centers, each of which has well-qualified doctors available seven-days a week. “At Healthspring, we want people to begin a new patient-doctor relationship. Healthspring’s doctors follow the latest evidence-based pathways and international care protocols, to deliver quality care consistently, Most important, we have a focus on appropriate care – ruling out over-diagnosis, but making sure we don’t miss out anything important either,” he pointed out.
Healthspring, adds Kaushik, initiated a unique business model that brings back the concept of family physician in a modern setting, which is developed with an objective to deliver premium healthcare in India.
