STAR CLINIC, Kondapur, was inaugurated on April 22nd, at 9.30 am, by Shri T. Harish Rao Garu, Hon’ble Cabinet Minister for Irrigation, Marketing and Legislative Affairs, Govt. of Telangana. Prof. Kakarla Subbarao Garu, world-renowned Radiologist has graced the occasion as the Chief Guest.
Star Hospitals now brings a much-required facility to Kondapur in the form of a personalized Clinic. In an environment where corporate hospitals have taken over, the simplicity of visiting a doctor in your vicinity is now virtually unheard of. Through this Clinic, Star reintroduces the one on one relationship between doctor and patient, including ease of treatment and accessibility.
Star Clinic, Kondapur, offers Superspeciality Consultations in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Dermatology, ENT, Pulmonology, Neurology, Nephrology, Urology and Orthopaedics, and also offers Lifestyle Consultation and a Pharmacy. The Clinic also provides the full range of Diagnostic Services, including ECG, 2D Echo, Treadmill Test, Ultrasonography, X-ray, Laboratory Investigations, Pulmonary Function Test, Uroflometry, EEG, and ENMG, etc.
The primary healthcare sector in India is around US$39 billion in size but is highly fragmented. The country has around 26,000 government-run primary health care centers and 615 district-level hospitals. These facilities should be the backbone of the public health care system, but because of what critics call the abysmal quality of delivery at these institutions, they are highly underutilized. Apart from the government-owned primary health care centers, there are around 200,000 privately-owned general physician clinics in the country. Most of these are run by single physicians who typically have basic medical qualifications — a bachelor’s degree in medicine and surgery (MBBS) — and usually practice out of their homes or from small clinics. There is no standardization in terms of processes, quality, and service levels. As a result, more often than not, patients end up going to large tertiary care hospitals even for basic health care needs.
It is estimated that around 80% of the population in India turns to private caregivers and more than 75% of their health care spending is out of their own pocket.
Indeed, industry observers say that various studies indicate that hospital admissions reduce by 40% and health care costs reduce by 30% if a country’s primary health care system is strong. Dr. Gopichand Mannam, Managing Director of STAR Hospitals Said, Star Hospitals’ vision is to increase the number of such efficiently run Clinics offering world class Primary Health Care.
On the occasion of the STAR CLINIC inauguration, Dr. Gopichand Mannam announced an inaugural offer a ‘Master Health Check Package’ Just for Rs.1499/- only. The package includes CBP, FBS, Serum Creatinine, Liver Function Test, Lipid Profile, Blood Grouping, Serum Uric Acid, CUE, Chest X-Ray, ECG, 2D Echo, Ultrasound Abdomen, HbA1c, TSH, Physician Consultation. Offer Valid from 22nd April to 20th May 2018.
