Apollo Hospitals, an integrated healthcare provider, on Wednesday opened a 290-bed multi-specialty hospital in partnership with Steel Authority of India (SAIL), in Rourkela of Western Odisha. The hospital, located in Sector-19 near Ispat General Hospital Road, would offer multidisciplinary care in more than 10 specialty areas including cardiac, neurosciences, orthopaedics, urology, nephrology and oncology.
The hospital has seven operation theatres and 80 critical care beds, Apollo said in a statement. ““The Western Odisha region is a large, underserved area which requires multi-specialty services. Working with the government, we will be able to bring a qualitative difference to the healthcare services in the region. We believe, public-private partnerships are powerful drivers of community-focused solutions including healthcare,” said MD Suneeta Reddy.
