We understand your skepticism regarding the claim that Indian hospitals offer high quality treatment at an affordable cost which is almost 1/16th of the treatment cost you may incur in countries like USA or UK. Several factors contribute in achieving incredibly low cost such as
Low operational cost of the hospitals
Decreased cost of living
Conducive exchange rates
Hospitals follow the practices of mass production and lean production that ensure reducing the waste, cutting the cost without compromising on quality or productivity. Concept of economies of scale is utilized in which cost advantage is attained by increasing the amount of production.
Most of the Indian hospitals are accredited by USA based JCI (Joint Commission International) or its Indian equivalent NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare providers) for quality standards they meet.
No waiting period. Neither for admission to the hospital nor for any surgery or any other advised treatment. The moment you arrive in India you will be picked up from the airport and taken directly to the guest house chosen by you as per your convenience or to the hospital. It is completely up to you.
If you chose to be taken directly to the hospital for the admission and the required diagnostic tests to save your time, the same shall be done. We make sure that you are attended to promptly and delivered the best of services, that too soonest possible.
Even before you depart from your home country, we schedule your appointment with your specialist from whom your treatment is planned and book your hospital room.
