establish post hospitalisation care centres across India in the next 3 years.
Launching India’s first transition healthcare facility in Hyderabad, there is an urgent need for creating post hospitalisation care infrastructure in India both in public and private sectors to ensure right kind of follow up with 100 per cent disease cure for the patients, opined Sateesh Andra, founder director of Suvitas Healthcare.
After discharge from a hospital, most of the patients with critical surgeries required round-the-clock supervision and other kinds of rejuvenating therapies from physiotherapists, psychologists and wellness experts to accelerate the recovery. As part of its initiative to provide post hospital care infrastructure in the country, Suvitas, has launched its first facility in Hyderabad. The new facility has 60 beds and also provides other patient conveniences such as library, home theatre, etc in addition to regular clinical service providers. In fact the post hospital care facility is like a care house between hospital and home after a patient gets treated for a critical ailment.
As per statistics provided comparing such facilities in USA and India, it is said that in US there are about 8 lakh transition beds for every one lakh critical care beds, while the same is not visible in India. In India such facilities are rare and almost nonexistent.
At present the post surgery rehabilitation care in India is still at nascent stage and there is an immediate requirement of at least 80,000 beds in the country.
Having learned the acute need for post hospitalisation care centres in the country, Suvitas is planning to open up 15 such centres in all the leading metro cities in the country. Beginning with Hyderabad, the company is looking to open up centres in Chennai, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune and New Delhi in the next one to two years.
“Our aim is to create at least 1000 post hospitalisation beds in the next one year. As part of this, we are gearing up all our efforts to pool in more resources and expecting to raise Rs. 30-40 crore from various venture capitalists in the next 6 months,” said Sateesh.
