Lilavati Hospital to start emergency medical centres at Dadar Railway Station

The patients will be able to avail the medical facilities in these healthcare centres on the basis of the Out Patient Department (OPD) and on the rates of Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS)


In order to provide immediate medical assistance to the commuters, Lilavati Hospital will initiate Emergency Medical Centre on platform six at Dadar station from February 8. The medical centre will comprise a team of experienced doctors. 

Patients can avail the facilities in the healthcare centre on the basis of the Out Patient Department (OPD) under the government scheme and rates of Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS).

In a general hospital, the consultation fee is charged around ₹1,500 while the medical centres will charge only ₹400 for their services. This is the first time that a private hospital has started such a programme for the public. The centre will also have a monitor which will reflect the name of the doctor along with his or her degree.

Moreover, those who cannot afford the treatment will be given the same free of cost.
