The Asian Heart Institute (AHI) has been the preferred medical partner for the Mumbai Marathon for the past fifteen years in succession. As the Mumbai Marathon draws closer, a dedicated team at the Asian Heart Institute is gearing up for the grand event to be held on January 20, 2019. 

From AHI, 90 rehabilitated cardiac patients (16 half marathoners and 74 dream runners) are participating in the marathon this year.

Looking back at this fifteen year long and satisfying association, Dr. Ramakanta Panda, vice chairman & chief cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon, Asian Heart Institute, Mumbai says,

We are proud to partner with Mumbai Marathon for the sixteenth consecutive year. Like every year, we are well equipped to handle any kind of medical emergency in the shortest time possible. The whole team at the AHI is more than glad to contribute state-of-the-art facilities and services for the marathoners.”

AHI’s state-of-the-art facilities and services during TATA Mumbai Marathon 2019:

• 500+ volunteers from AHI (including 200+ medical staff)

• 11 ambulances (each with a doctor & a nurse to ply on the entire route)
