Mumbai, Thursday, November 6, 2014: Wockhardt Hospitals inaugurated its South Mumbai hospital today. The 350-bed multi-speciality hospital at Mumbai Central hosts two institutes of excellence: ‘Wockhardt Heart Institute’ and ‘Wockhardt Critical Care Institute’. The hospital has a longstanding preferred collaboration with Partners Medical International (PMI), an associate of Harvard Medical School affiliated hospitals. The partnership will help bring to Wockhardt’s patients, global standards of care and clinical expertise. Senior staff at the hospital, including doctors and nurses, have undergone training at Harvard Medical School.

Wockhardt Hospital is the first hospital in South Mumbai with a dedicated heart institute and will also have 100 bed for critical care, the largest such facility in the city. An expert team from Partners HealthCare International (PHI) led by Dr. Gilbert Mudge – President & CEO, PHI and Professor of Medicine – Harvard Medical School was present at the inauguration along with Founder Chairman of Wockhardt Group, Dr. Habil Khorakiwala and Managing Director of Wockhardt Hospitals, Ms. Zahabiya Khorakiwala.

The 21-storeyed, state-of-the-art tertiary care hospital is Wockhardt Group’s largest flagship hospital and will have full-time committed consultants, surgeons and physicians to drive the healthcare services.

Right from the design of the hospital to the processes, the hospital aims to make safer treatments and diagnosis and thereby adhere to the philosophy of ‘Life Wins’. At the inauguration ceremony, Ms. Zahabiya Khorakiwala, Managing Director of the Hospital, along with all the staff took a pledge of “Life Wins" because Wockhardians believe in the pledge--a reaffirmation that indeed Life Wins.

On the occasion of the inauguration, Dr. Habil Khorakiwala, Founder Chairman, Wockhardt Group said, “We realised that Mumbai has a serious requirement for emergency services. Our new facility is an answer to this unaddressed gap. Our association with Boston’s key hospitals including Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana–Farber Cancer Institute will ensure that the best medical expertise in the world is available to the patients here. The hospital is also equipped with world-class advanced technology which guarantees best care and facilities.”

Ms. Zahabiya Khorakiwala, Managing Director, Wockhardt Hospitals, said, “The new age Wockhardt hospital is built on the ethos of ‘Life Wins’. Through this mantra, it is our endeavour to provide the best quality of patient care and better clinical outcomes. Our approach is holistic treatment, incorporating three key elements; the infrastructure and technology of the hospital, the systems and process which are designed to be safer and more convenient, and with some of the top most doctors of the city one is in competent hands."

Further, she added, "This hospital has the first paperlite ICU in Mumbai, and several such technologies in this hospital make clinical decisions more accurate."

Dr. Gilbert Mudge said, “The new facility bears testimony to Wockhardt’s motto of providing world class medical services and care to its patients. Partners Medical International is happy to have been associated with Wockhardt since the last 12 years and supporting them in their endeavour through superior advice and medical expertise.”
