  • The new facility will be equipped to treat 36,000 patients annually and will offer all modern medical amenities and specialties

MYSURU : With a vision of providing comprehensive and compassionate health care to all, a new 50-bed multi-specialty hospital is being built on the campus of Amritakripa Hospital in Roopa Nagar, Mysuru. The new, ultra-modern facility, planned according to NABH specifications, will significantly expand the existing capacities of the hospital and expand the range of services for patients. The Amritakripa Hospital is one of the wings of the Kochi-based Amrita Hospital and has been in operation with 15 beds in Mysuru since 2011.

The new wing, which is equipped to treat 36,000 patients annually, will be spread over a 66,000 m² building with solar energy, all modern amenities as well as ramps and lifts. It will offer general surgery, general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, ENT, ophthalmology, orthopedics, and community medicine. Super specialties such as plastic surgery, urology, nephrology, neurosurgery, oncosurgery and preventive cardiology are also offered.

When we talk about the need to expand existing facilities, DR. Vikas Modi who runs Amritakripa Hospital said, “There is a skewed distribution of health facilities in urban, rural and tribal areas with a large gap in accessibility and affordability. That gap was felt even more clearly during the pandemic. There was an urgent need for a basic, broad specialization and some super specialty hospital in the area as there is no proper health facility within 50 km of Roopa Nagar in the direction of Gaddige[ hunsur]. The entire region is inhabited by villages and tribal people. “

The most important facilities of the new facility include six new OPD rooms with a separate accident department, an isolated intensive care unit and a ward for infectious diseases, dialysis including a dialysis bed for retroviral positive patients, operating theaters, an intensive care unit and a physiotherapy unit. A special unit will focus on wound care and fractures. There would also be a unit offering surgical corrections to patients with cerebral palsy. There will also be holistic care with Ayurveda.

Said Dr. Sowmya B, who heads the obstetric and gynecological services at Amritakripa Hospital: “The hospital will visit the community regularly for regular health checkups on the doorstep of people in rural areas. The facility will also focus on training girls in various health system-related skills as part of the empowerment of women in rural communities, while building a team of efficient paramedical staff from rural and indigenous areas. “

In particular, the hospital will offer teleconsultations with Kochi’s Amrita Hospital for specialties such as pediatric gastroenterology, pediatric neurology and cardiology, as well as other super specialties.

A Bhoomi Poojan program was organized at Amritakripa Hospital to mark the construction of the new facility. It was confirmed by the presence of Brahmachari Prasadamrita Chaitanyaji, the administrator of Amritakripa Hospital, along with Chief Guest Hon ‘ Shri. GT Devegowda, MLA, Chamundeshwari constituency; Guest of Honor Shri. Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar, Vice Chancellor, University of Mysore; Shri. KG Vishwanathan, Managing Director of BNPML; and Shri. Shyam Bhat renowned lawyer.

The Amritakripa Hospital is owned and operated by the Mata Amritanandamayi Math.
