    Published on August 7, 2022

    New Delhi : J&K Lieutenant Governor Shri Manoj Sinha, Friday, inaugurated 150-bedded Ujala Cygnus Kashmir Superspeciality Hospital, at Nowgam Srinagar, in the presence of Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals’ Executive Chairman Mr Probal Ghosal, Founders & Directors, Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals Dr Shuchin Bajaj and Dr Dinesh Batra, and Managing Director, Ujala Cygnus Kashmir Superspeciality Hospital Dr. Pervez Sofi, among other dignitaries.

    Fulfilling the goal of providing world-class healthcare services and critical care to people residing in tier II and tier III cities at affordable costs, Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals announced the expansion of its operations in the Kashmir valley. The renowned healthcare group has set up its 18th hospital, its first 150-bedded superspeciality hospital in Srinagar, which will also serve communities in Anantnag, Bandipore, Baramulla, Budgam, Kupwara, Pulwama,  Shopian, Kishtwar, Punch, Ramban, Kathua, Rajouri, Ladakh, Leh besides Srinagar.

    The new hospital has exceptional secondary and tertiary care facilities in Interventional Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Neurosurgery, Orthopaedic and Joint Replacement Surgery, Laparoscopic Surgery, Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Neonatology, Internal Medicine, Urology, Rheumatology, OncoSurgery, Ophthalmology, ENT, Plastic and Vascular Surgery, Pulmonology, Nephrology, Neurology, 24*7 Trauma and Critical Care. The hospital also includes a state-of-the-art radiology department, round-the-clock pharmacy, labs, and ambulance services. It also has a 24X7 toll-free mental health helpline facility.

    “With this initiative, our goal has always been to reach out to the most remote parts of our country and provide medical facilities even near the unreached areas of the Kashmir valley. Our chain of hospitals provides both emergency and elective procedures and specialises in surgeries such as joint replacement, trauma surgery, neurological and spine surgery, urology, ophthalmology, infertility and ENT. With this unit, we are creating a value-based inclusive healthcare brand for Tier2 & Tier3 communities by providing quality care with an emphasis on affordability,” said Mr Probal Ghosal, Executive Chairman, Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals.

    The new facility will also strengthen the government’s initiative of ensuring quality healthcare accessible to everyone.

    The vision of providing quality services and establishing superspeciality hospitals is also shared by Dr Dinesh Batra who for over three decades has been a key player in major healthcare reforms. Dr Dinesh has also been instrumental in establishing hospitals for Primus Group which include facilities in Abuja and Nigeria.

    “Decentralized health services to tier II and tier III cities is the need of the hour. We are working to ensure that services reach unserved areas,” added Dr Dinesh Batra, Founder & Director, Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals.

    “With advanced diagnostic and treatment capabilities, we want to transform the healthcare scenario of the state. We will bring our healthcare expertise and provide high-quality secondary and tertiary care services to the large population of J&K and surrounding areas. Not only quality healthcare services, the venture will also bring huge direct and indirect employment opportunities for the locals. Over the past decade, our focus has been on expanding our presence in smaller towns and cities among the under-served populations of the country.

    Our hospitals in Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand have been instrumental in filling a major void of tertiary care in these areas,” added Dr Shuchin Bajaj, Founder & Director, Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals.

    The flagship scheme Ayushman Bharat Yojana has potential to revolutionise the healthcare sector.  It is the largest healthcare platform in the world, and Ujala Cygnus Kashmir has committed to offering medical services under that scheme in Srinagar and all the other 17 hospitals outside Srinagar also. For the longest time, critical care and trauma facilities have been challenging Jammu & Kashmir which will be an initiative by Ujala Cygnus Kashmir in providing 24×7 critical care, said Dr Pervez Sofi, Managing Director, Ujala Cygnus Kashmir Super-speciality Hospital.
