A comprehensive institute, it is aimed at delivering cutting edge medicine in line with the best in the West. No effort has been spared and every conceivable detail looked into, in the setting up of this next generation hospital, positioned as the healthcare destination facility, in Asia."
The Fortis Memorial is a one stop, multi-super specialty quaternary care hospital providing medical excellence. A first of its kind in Asia, it redefines Healthcare delivery, elevating it to a position of individualized, total care for complex medical problems, requiring specialized medical attention. Adopting a patient centric approach, the Fortis Memorial builds on its four strong pillars of exceptional clinical talent, world-class infrastructure, cutting edge technology, and personalized service delivered with compassion, in a friendly environment.
Dedicating the Hospital to the service of the Nation, Shivinder Singh, Executive Vice Chairman, Fortis Healthcare Limited, said, "The new Fortis Memorial Research Institute marks a paradigm shift in our interpretation of the idea of holistic patient care and our quest for excellence. We have drawn in international quality medical talent, created the best infrastructure, brought in the world's most advanced medical technologies in an environment of compassionate patient care. All our efforts are directed at radically improving clinical outcomes with a warm and friendly experience."
Great attention has been paid to detail, evident in the excellence in design, infrastructure, latest technology, superior functionality and compassionate care delivered with a motive to heal.
Shivinder Singh, added, "The facility has been designed with great sensitivity, keeping in mind the anxiety and stress that patients & their families undergo and intuitively addresses these emotions. The overall ambience and facilities support total healing with an emphasis on complete cure and effortlessly strings together wellness into the healthcare mainstay."
In its first phase, Fortis Memorial will have 400 top doctors and more than 1000 nurses to provide the best treatment & care. It is the first hospital in its category to house a full-fledged stem cell lab for cutting edge medical treatment and also offers Robotic surgery and Organ transplantation for patients.
The Fortis Memorial utilizes and showcases the latest technologies in use in world class health care. Â Some of the milestone technologies at the hospital include the first and only pilot project for precision Radio-surgery in the world bringing together the cutting edge expertise of two medical technology giants – Elekta and Brain Lab. The precision Radio-surgery system is the first such collaboratively created installation in the world involving both companies. Â Separately, another leader, Philips Medical systems has also entered into a long term arrangement with Fortis Memorial to develop new technology and methods to treat complex medical conditions.
Other state of the art technologies deployed at the hospital include the 3 T Digital MRI, 256 Slice CT Scan, Advanced Brain Suite, Bi-Plane Cath-Lab, Time of flight PET CT, Digital Mammography, e-ICU, Fibro-scan, Voice Modulated Integrated Operating Rooms and an Open Diagnostic lab. Fortis Memorial Research Institute is determined to redefine healthcare by significantly enhancing patient experience and clinical outcomes.
Woven into the fabric of Fortis Memorial is the ethos of service – to look after its patients and their families, so that they feel cared for and special. It is our experience that whilst close relatives and friends accompanying patients provide immense psychological comfort that accelerates healing, they themselves go through a period of extreme stress. To enable attending relatives and patients to cope better we have provisioned a range of thoughtful services as a pleasant diversion.
These holistic health facilities include a swimming pool for hydrotherapy, a fully equipped Gymnasium and Spa for health and wellness, several Art 'n' Health programmes to recuperate, a mini theatre to de-stress, retail therapy outlets for immediate needs and a food court providing a choice of dining options to replenish energies.
