Aster CMI Hospital to open in Bengaluru

ManamaDubai-based healthcare conglomerate, Aster DM Healthcare, will open a Quaternary Healthcare facility Aster CMI Hospital in the Indian city of Bengaluru. 

The hospital in Hebbal reflects the group’s ongoing commitment to create patient-centric hospitals driven by medical innovations and clinical excellence. The upgraded 509-bed hospital will be inaugurated tomorrow by cricket great Sachin Tendulkar.

“With an additional investment of around AED 126 million in the existing hospital, Aster CMI Hospital is all set to create a benchmark in medical care not only in Bengaluru but across India," said Aster DM Healthcare Founder Chairman and Managing Director Dr Azad Moopen. 

“A serene environment with spacious interiors and advanced facilities are designed for the patients’ comfort echoing Aster DM Healthcare’s core philosophy: ‘We’ll Treat You Well’. Given the strategic location of the hospital and the connectivity that Bengaluru offers, it will cater to people outside India as well. With our strong network in eight foreign countries, we are confident to see great potential for Medical Value Travel,” he added.

“While focusing on the latest medical equipment and technology, we have not forgotten the human aspect. We have developed a remarkable team of clinicians and surgeons supported by an able paramedical team of qualified technicians to offer specialisations in various faculties," said Aster CMI Hospital CEO Dr Nitish Shetty. 

Aster CMI also operates Aster Clinics at Yelahanka, (Manyata Tech Park) and will soon be launching a clinic at New BEL Road in Bengaluru. Aster Clinics will provide one stop medical facilities and healthcare services for the entire family and are a gateway to good health in the neighbourhood. 

Aster CMI recently signed a seven-year agreement with Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) as their healthcare partners and is now managing the medical services facility at Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru. The healthcare group will also be responsible for the standalone Airport Medical Care Facility expected to be commissioned by March 2017, the services of which can also be availed by the general public.

Aster DM Healthcare has also extended its social initiative in association with cricketer Tendulkar to offer Oncology & Paediatric Cardiac Surgeries for deserving patients in Aster CMI along with Aster Medcity-Kochi and Aster MIMS - Kozhikode. 

An outlay of Rs 20 million has been earmarked for this as part of this CSR initiative for the next four years. Earlier this year, Aster DM Healthcare launched a GCC & National India level CSR effort under ‘Aster SafeRoads #iPLEDGE’ along with Tendulkar as part of its vision to make Indian roads safe.
