Narayana Multispeciality Hospital, Mysore
Narayana Health - India's fastest growing multispeciality hospital chain has set up India's first low cost multispecialty hospital on a 10 acres land in Mysore. The 200 bed hospital built in 4.5 acres comprises of 6 operation theatres, 42 bedded Intensive Care Unit, blood bank, laboratory, pharmacy and the largest dialysis unit in Mysore. Our hospital offers a wide range of services across specialties which include cardiology, cardiac surgery, nephrology, urology, neurology, neurosurgery, endocrinology, orthopaedics, internal medicine, obstetrics, gynaecology, pediatrics, neonatology and gastroenterology to name a few.
The surgical specialties are supported by state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities such as 64 slice CT scan, MRI scan, cath lab, endoscopy, ultra-sound, ECG, Echocardiogram, X ray and mammography. The OPD is designed to accommodate 2000 patients on a daily basis at full capacity. Apart from driving bed occupancy and resource utilisation, the large OPD capacity is primarily intended to ensure timely diagnosis and to provide relevant surgical intervention when required.
Few unique features of Narayana Multispeciality Hospital, Mysore are:
Construction: A pre-fabricated structure with minimal RCC construction was used except in the operation theatres, catheterization lab, radiology & diagnostic services and ICU areas. Further, it is a ground and first floor building keeping construction costs significantly low. The building design helps maximize utilization of natural daylight and natural cross ventilation in order to minimize electricity consumption. Traditional hospitals take over two years to build while a low cost hospital takes less than 10 months. This ensures early return on investment.
Air Conditioning: limited use of air-conditioning to essential areas such as operating rooms, intensive care units, radiology and diagnostic rooms. These areas require air conditioning for functional purposes.
Optimal Space Utilisation: Patients and their attendants waiting areas are as a common practice provided inside the hospital. At Mysore, architects have optimised space utilization by clustering the waiting areas and providing them outside in the greenery, away from clinical zones. The saving in area, thus achieved, helps reduce the initial capital expenditure on building.
Outsourcing Model: Some functions like tele-radiology have been outsourced to larger group hospitals such as the one in NH Health City Bangalore. For example, radiology scans taken at Mysore will be transmitted and analysed by a specialist team at NH Health City, thus avoiding duplication of resources and ensuring optimal utilization of specialists like radiologists. Similarly, some back-end activities which involve special skill sets such as claims processing, discharge summary preparation would also be outsourced to the larger facilities in the group.
NH Mysore provides free shuttle service for its patients from the hospital to Mysore City. It offers free consultation to Out Patients across all departments. To ensure holistic treatment and after care to patients, companion care workshops have been introduced for patient's companion at the Mysore facility.
