The pandemic has drawn a new timeline in the world – before and after COVID-19 era. Earlier, Healthcare was getting recognised as an industry and a life-sustaining instrument at a much slower pace. Post pandemic, it has now emerged as the most important sector without which one can’t even imagine life or society.
Diagnostics and other health services have become an integral part of the whole healthcare sector. Star Imaging and Path Lab had started their journey when diagnostics was a new concept in Delhi, even in India.
Under the vision of our Ex-Chairman Dr R A Gupta and Pawan Gupta, MD, Star Imaging and Path Lab, from past 41 years we have developed a world-class diagnostics and healthcare system. Star Imaging and Path Lab is standing by its countrymen and the Government in the fight against COVID-19 Coronavirus.
With 30% of the market share of the healthcare industry, Star Imaging has provided direct and indirect employment to more than 3000 people before the pandemic. The company has shifted focus from revenue generation to aiding the society amid the pandemic.
The company is working in a PPP model with different State Governments and is looking forward to working on more PPP healthcare projects in the long-term. The major focus lies on providing extensive health services and employment generation through to skill development.
Star Imaging and Path Lab MD, Pawan Gupta says,” Business without service towards mankind has no sense, so one must keep the business objectives aligned with social objectives and needs.”
Sameer Bhati, Director, Star Imaging and Path Lab, says, “I firmly believe in evolving continuously in diagnostics & healthcare excellence. With this philosophy, we have emerged as a company with a difference.”
SIPL has made several remarkable efforts such as COVID-19 awareness program in association with Delhi Police, sanitisation and food distrubution programmes like Yuva and E-Yuva for socially and economically deprived children. Their social initiatives also include conducting COVID-19 tests of patients under quarantine.
Star Imaging and Path Lab is also providing free doctor tele-consultation for Cancer patients, COVID patients and non-COVID patients as a preventive measure to fight COVID-19 Coronavirus.
They are also engaged with Delhi Government and other state governments in Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) including IIT Delhi COVID Test Kit validation and Testing. Alongside the gold standard RT-PCR test we are also conducting CT chest as a diagnostic modality which has now been recognised as an internationally accepted specific method of detecting COVID-19.
Pawan Gupta further says, “We are still trying to add expertise and are contributing towards IPR and research part too. We are keen on helping our Police Force through counselling sessions combating stress and workload. SIPL serves across the industrial sections like Samsung Corp, ITC Hospitality, Centre of Diabetes and Allied Sciences, Pristyn Care and others.”
SIPL is committed to supporting our country to achieve the highest GDP with the highest HDI in line with PM Modi’s call for ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’. After this Pandemic, we will see a new rising, an awakened India and SIPL. – Hindustan Times
