Fortis Healthcare Ltd., one of India’s largest integrated and trusted multi-speciality chain of hospitals, today opened its Information Centre at Viltis Diagnostic, Tirupati as part of its commitment to provide the best healthcare services accessible to the people in and around Tirupati. The centre was inaugurated by Dr N. Venkata Ramanaiah, M.S., (Gen) Additional Director of Medical Education | Director of Nirmala Multispecialty hospital & President of Tirupati Surgical Society and Dr Poorna Chandran, Medical Superintendent, Fortis Hospital, Vadapalani. People who visited the launch event received free medical advice from the experts.
The information center has been established with the aim of providing Fortis Healthcare’s world-class healthcare services accessible to the people of Tirupati. The expert team of doctors from Fortis Chennai representing various specialties such as Cardiology, Cardio Thoracic Surgery, Pulmonology, Neurology, Gastroenterology & HPB, Spine and Nephrology will visit the information center regularly to provide OPD consultations. This is expected to provide healthcare access to a vast population, especially those residing in the remote areas of Tirupati and the adjoining districts, who had to travel to far off metro cities to avail quality medical advice.
Inaugurating the center Dr N. Venkata Ramanaiah said “The inauguration of Fortis Information Centre is a significant step and will be instrumental in providing access to quality healthcare services to the residents of Tirupati and adjoining regions. I appreciate the services that Fortis Healthcare has been providing through its hospitals across India. Their international standard of healthcare services is truly laudable. I hope Fortis Healthcare will cater to the medical needs of the people who find it difficult to travel afar for advanced medical treatments.”
Speaking at the launch, Dr Poorna Chandran, Medical Superintendent, Fortis Hospital Vadapalani said “the pandemic has posed a great challenge to the healthcare sector for the past two years. It disrupted the healthcare treatment for the semi-urban and rural patients leading to an upsurge in morality among patients who are suffering from NCDs or other curable disease as patients avoided hospital visits for months together and were later diagnosed with serious illness in advanced stages.”
He further said that “This new information centre will provide best-in-class medical treatment within reach under the supervision of senior medical experts. Hence request the patients not to delay their treatment any further. Prevention and timely treatment help to enhance the life expectancy of patients.”
