Jaipur emerging as the Medical Hub of Rajasthan

Metro Hospital Jaipur team of doctorsPink City Jaipur is fast emerging as the Medical Hub of Rajasthan. The top healthcare players of India have setup bases at Jaipur thereby making it an attractive destination for the people of Rajasthan who used to travel to Gujarat, Mumbai or New Delhi in search of Quality Healthcare

 Indian Healthcare giants like Metro Group of Hospitals, Fortis Healthcare, Narayan Hridyalaya, Birla Hospital are some of the national level players who have setup state of art healthcare facilities in the capital city of Rajasthan. For a very long time the people of Rajasthan had to depend on the Government Medical Colleges including Sawai Man Singh Hospital at Jaipur for getting the tertiary care treatment. Most of the important cities of the state like Jodhpur, Bikaner, Udaipur, Kota are lacking in quality healthcare specially in the fields of Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Brain & Spine treatments, Joints Replacements and Cancer Care. Fortis Hospital at Jaipur

The entry of the healthcare biggies has created a lot of competition also which is in the benefit of the patients as they are able to get quality treatment at very low costs. `Most of the highly qualified doctors of the state had to work in cities like Mumbai and Delhi because of the lack of facilities in our home state' says Dr. Pradeep Singhal one of the most respected interventional cardiologists of the state hailing from the agrarian city of Sri Ganganagar and now working at Jaipur

Maj Ganesh Kale CEO of Metro HospitalMajor Ganesh Kale who has handled several prestigious hospitals not only in India but also abroad says that this is a welcome step as critical patients find it extremely difficult to travel long distances specially in cases where timely medical attention is of utmost importance. Today Jaipur offers everything at the same level as the bigger metros in virtually all the specialties and superspecialties. Major Kale has recently assumed the position of Chief Executive Officer of Metro Hospital at Jaipur.

With the arrival of the best technology the doctors are also focussing on upgrading their skills. Dr. Shyam Sunder Soni who is already one of the busiest knee replacement surgeons of the state is currently in the US to do `Dr. Ranawat Fellowship' in Joint Replacement. 

`Rajasthan with its rich cultural and historical traditions is a favourite amongst the tourists coming to India and this can be leveraged to garner a bigger share of medical tourism due to the presence of high quality medical institutions at Jaipur' says Kuldeep Chaudhary Founder Partner of Gurgaon based Indian Health Consultants which has just opened its Jaipur branch
