Have you been delaying your regular treatment? Has a family member postponed his/her elective surgery due to COVID? Do you think twice before visiting a doctor for non-COVID problems?

COVID-19 is here to stay for some time, it is time for all of us to accept the “new normal” and access timely medical help as and when required. It is time to live life Above and Beyond COVID-19. Medical care is not a luxury but a necessity of life. Imagine a world without safe access to medical emergency services! This would lead to disastrous results and will cause more harm than COVID-19 itself.

Over the last few months, while India was under complete lockdown medical facilities across the country were overwhelmed with a deluge of coronavirus infections and many patients with non-COVID illnesses struggled to get timely medical care. 

Our team at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital believes that “Your safety is our concern, your health our priority”. We proved this in these testing times and our team continued to work during the lockdown. Our team of healthcare experts has gone beyond their call of duty to ensure that patients receive the best medical care even during the lockdown. Our medical services did not pause in the lockdown. Here is a list of medical care attended to during the lockdown (from 24 March to 30 June):

  • 3100 Chemotherapy sessions
  • 6111 Radiation therapy sessions
