The Indian based Apollo hospital plans to open a state-of-the-art hospital that will offer specialised and super specialised treatments.
Founder of the hospital, Dr Prathap C. Reddy revealed this on Friday when he met with Tanzania’s Minister for Health Ummy Mwalimu, who visited the facility in New Delhi, India on Friday.
According to Minister Ummy, the Apollo Hospital in Tanzania will merely deal with kidney transplant surgery, liver transplant, brain and nerve surgery.
Others are major heart and blood vessel surgery, liver, kidney, cancer, brain and nerves.
“This investment will have been made at the right time and will be very helpful in reducing the medical cost incurred by many patients when travelling abroad seeking for the specialised treatments,” the Minister said.
She said Tanzania and the India based ospital have been cooperating for a good period of time especially in serving patients who are referred for specialist treatment and high-risk diseases at the hospital as well as handling patients who require specialised and super specialised treatments.
Apollo Hospital is one of the largest healthcare providers in India, with over 60 hospitals and 10,000 beds across the country, including Apollo Hospital Ahmedabad, Apollo Hospital Indraprastha, Apollo Hospital Mumbai, Apollo Hospital Hyderabad, and Apollo Hospital Chennai.
The hospital chain offers a wide range of services, including inpatient and outpatient care, diagnostic testing, and preventive medicine.
Apollo Hospital is also a leader in medical education and research, and it has trained thousands of doctors and nurses over the years.
