About Global Hospital
As I look back to May 2002, it seems that the time has just flown! We have grown into a 120 bedded multi-speciality tertiary care hospital in 2009 from humble beginnings as a peripheral municipal hospital in May 2002. We now have 8 Intensive Care Beds, 14 Intensive Coronary Care Beds, 4 High Dependency Unit (HDU) beds and 5 operating room suites. The hospital provides almost every type of service in the fields of diagnosis, investigations and treatment. We have also made significant contribution in the field of rehabilitation, research, education and training. Other facilities include Speciality Clinics, Sports Medicine Centre, Executive Health Checkups, Life Style Modification and support group for Breast Cancer. The Department of Anesthesiology needs a special mention for their outstanding record in successfully conducting anesthesia for high risk patients without any hassles. Our Cardiac Centre has been doing excellent contribution by providing emergency care of patients with heart problems especially… especially those with heart attacks. The Department of Ophthalmology has acquired retinal laser which makes us a tertiary level eye care facility. Histopathology Department has improved with addition of frozen section facility for intraoperative decision making in cancer surgery. CT Scan Department has installed 16 slice GE Lite Speed CT machine and provides services at competitive rates.
We have started “Defeat Cancer” Series, a public education initiative which will last the entire year (2009) to telecast 15 minutes programmes twice a day on Care TV, an exclusive health channel. We have already made 7 episodes each for Breast Cancer and Gynecological Cancer (cervix, ovary and endometrium) and plan to make four more series.
Last, but not the least, BSES Municipal General Hospital is a role model of Private Public Participation Project and offers probably a fine example of what can be achieved in the field of healthcare by PPP. The positive outcome of this project needs to be highlighted in the electronic media since public hospitals which have tremendous potential can be better utilized by following our example.
