GNRC Medical, situated at North Guwahati has launched a new scheme for the
free treatment of accident and emergency patients.
Launching the scheme Chairman of GNRC Ltd Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah said, “Human life is precious. But everyday many lives are lost prematurely. Accidents are one of the most common causes behind this untimely and sudden loss of life. In such a situation the sooner they are treated more will be the possibility of their survival. Keeping this in view, and for the overall wellbeing of the society GNRC Medical has taken a bold and revolutionary step towards providing free treatment for the first 24 hours after an accident. This scheme will cover patients suffering from stroke, heart attack and other medical emergencies also. The free facility will cover doctor’s consultation, bed charge, minimum but essential medicines, oxygen, CT Scan, ECG, X-Ray and limited blood tests.”
This is a rare and first of its kind move in the history of private healthcare in India. It’s noteworthy to mention here that newly opened GNRC Medical is providing world class healthcare at affordable rates for the masses for which it has become successful to pull a lot of people from all over the state within a very short span of time. For example, specialist doctor consultation costs only Rs. 60 here which includes specialties like Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Psychiatry, Dermatology, Diabetology, ENT, Eye and Dentistry. On the other hand Super-Speciality doctor consultation has been kept only at Rs. 120 for specialties like Neurology, Neurosurgery, Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Paediatric Surgery, Pulmonology, Nephrology and Haematology.
