Wadia Hospitals are heritage legendary leading institutions of our country, treating patients from all over India, and abroad. By catering to the needs of paediatric patients in Nasik and North Maharashtra, the hospital has joined hands with Vijan Hospital & Research Centre (VHRC), to introduce Outreach OPDs. It is a first-of-its-kind initiative by the hospital, to provide high-end clinical diagnosis and consultation by heart specialists for paediatric patients.
Congenital heart disease, also called as congenital heart defect, is a heart abnormality present at birth. This cardiac disease is found in 0.16 to 0.36 amongst 1000 live neonates, and is also responsible for 25% of all cardiac deaths occurring within the first week after birth. Hence, BJWHC, has taken an initiative, and launched an Outreach OPD in Nashik and entire North Maharashtra. This would be a boon for children with heart ailments, as they will be offered a state-of-the-art care at subsidised cost at BaiJerbai Hospital for Children, Mumbai.
Dr Minnie Bodhanwala, CEO, Wadia Hospitals, Parel, said, “Since the inception of cardiac Department in Wadia Hospitals, in 2017, with state-of-the-art Cath lab and dedicated Cardiac Operation theatre and ICU, more than 1500 cases have been treated with 100% success rate, out of which 150 were only from Northern Maharashtra. By understanding the importance of patients receiving from other parts of Maharashtra, Wadia management has taken the noble step to come up with Outreach OPD centres. Heart specialists from BaiJerbaiWadia Hospital for Children would conduct OPD’s on alternate Sundays, twice a month. This will make life easier for those children as most procedures and follow-ups can be done at their doorstep in Nashik itself.”
