In a significant development for healthcare in Kashmir, Paras Health has emerged as the region’s first privately-owned Super Specialty Hospital. This state-of-the-art facility with 200 beds. It is fully equipped to address both basic and advanced medical needs, bringing quality healthcare closer to the people.
The Journey to Better Healthcare
Recognizing the need to bolster the private healthcare sector in Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Government has emphasized its commitment to developing the medical infrastructure. Consequently, this visionary step has led to the establishment of a medical city on the outskirts of Srinagar, with the primary aim of providing better healthcare options for the people.
For years, patients in need of specialized treatment and quality care had no choice but to seek medical services from corporate hospitals outside Jammu and Kashmir. This often resulted in exorbitant expenses, including travel and accommodation costs for patients and their families. Moreover, follow-up visits posed additional financial burdens, leading to delayed treatments and interventions.
To address these challenges, Paras Health has stepped in to make a positive impact on healthcare in the region. With a track record of providing affordable and reliable medical services across India, the group has now expanded to Srinagar with its seventh healthcare facility.
Improving Healthcare in Kashmir
Paras Health aims to revolutionize healthcare delivery in Kashmir by providing top-notch medical facilities right at the doorsteps of the people. The hospital not only offers advanced medical treatments but also seeks to generate employment opportunities across various specialties. Additionally, it plans to introduce DNB Courses in accordance with medical board guidelines.
With a capacity to serve over 1.5 lakh patients annually, Paras Health strives to bridge the gap in health infrastructure and ensure accessibility to quality healthcare within the region. By doing so, it aims to put an end to the brain-drain of clinical talent from the Valley and empower Kashmiris with world-class medical services locally.
Specialized Services for Better Health
Paras Hospital Srinagar has prioritized several key specialties, keeping in mind the prevalent disease profile in J&K. These include Cardiology, Oncology, Orthopedics, Neurosciences, and Renal Sciences. The hospital boasts a strong team of experienced specialists in these fields, ensuring that patients in Kashmir receive the best possible care and treatment.
Beyond the core specialties, Paras Hospital also offers a wide range of medical services, including Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics and Neonatology, Emergency Medicine, Pulmonology, Critical Care, Rheumatology, Anesthesia, General Surgery, Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery, ENT, Ophthalmology, Physiotherapy, Dentistry, Dermatology, and Endocrinology.
24 x 7 Emergency Care
As the first Super Specialty Hospital in Kashmir outside the government sector, Paras Hospital provides comprehensive emergency care throughout the year. The hospital has installed numerous ICU beds in various specialties, and over 100 skilled critical care nurses are ready to attend to patients in need. With seven modular Operation Theaters featuring cutting-edge bio-safety technology, the hospital ensures a sterile environment for surgical procedures, enhancing patient outcomes.
A round-the-clock Blood Center has been set up, equipped with essential blood components like red blood cells, platelets, Fresh Frozen Plasma, and Plasma Aphaeresis. The hospital’s fully automated lab services also operate 24/7, using the latest equipment to deliver accurate and timely results.
Designed for Patient Comfort
Paras Hospital has meticulously designed its admission areas, wards, and rooms to prioritize patient safety, infection control, and comfort. In-patients have access to six-bedded wards, two bedded rooms, single bedded rooms, and suites. The hospital has also set up two nurses’ counters on each floor to ensure prompt emergency response.
Moreover, the hospital has taken care of additional amenities such as pharmacy, pantry, and housekeeping services to reduce stress on patients and their families during their stay.
Paras Health’s arrival in Srinagar marks a turning point in healthcare for the region. With its commitment to providing world-class medical services, the hospital aims to save lives and promote better health for the people of Kashmir.
