Leading Goan healthcare provider, V.M.Salgaocar Hospital, Chicalim, today announced its strategic alliance with Jaslok Hospital, Mumbai which will provide Goans with customized access to several of the country’s most renowned doctors and cutting edge medical facilities.
NABH and NABL accredited VM Salgaocar Hospital has served Goans since 1981 and is now enhancing its services through this momentous partnership with Jaslok Hospital, one of India’s oldest and most recognised medical institutions. V.M. Salgaocar Hospital’s core specialty areas have been augmented with a wide range of specialized clinics with some of the best doctors in the country in various fields. Patients requiring surgery in highly specialised areas will be able to consult doctors from Jaslok Hospital and also avail of pre- and post-operative consultations in Goa itself. Since the patient will only need to travel to Mumbai for the procedure and stay for the period of immediate recovery, this will result in a great reduction in costs borne by the patient’s family.
Speaking on the occasion, Mrs. Ranjana Salgaocar, Vice President, V.M.Salgaocar Hospital said “To bridge the gap between the demand for a superior level of treatment and the lack of facilities available in Goa, we found the perfect partner in Jaslok which is currently ranked 6th in India in the All India Multispecialty Hospitals Ranking Survey. This strategic partnership will facilitate access to a highly advanced level of healthcare previously not available in Goa while upholding our aim to provide a superior patient experience through personalised care.”
While expressing her happiness, Dr. Tarang Gianchandani, CEO, Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre said, “This is a very significant positive step for healthcare in Goa. The partnership between Jaslok Hospital and V.M. Salgaocar Hospital is going to give hope to many. The idea of collaborating with one of the most prominent hospitals in Goa came about because we have seen some of the great work Salgaocar Hospital has done here.
