Siemens Ltd and Medanta – The Medicity, one of India’s largest multi-superspecialty institutes, located in Gurgaon and founded by eminent cardiac surgeon Dr Naresh Trehan, have come together to ensure that affordable and quality healthcare reaches the remote corners around Gurgaon.

Sanjeevan is an indigenously-developed mobile concept from Siemens Ltd which is designed and equipped to operate as a mobile healthcare clinic and is fully-equipped with Siemens Healthcare technology. Medanta will be in charge of and operate the bus as well as provide qualified staff. The goal is to improve access to affordable healthcare to the many remote villages of Gurgaon.

“Siemens worldwide strives to be an integral part of society, and our corporate citizenship initiatives promote social development by creating a viable future. The Siemens mobile healthcare clinic embodies this corporate value system as it delivers asustainable and self-sufficient solution to the locals’ need for healthcare”, said Mr Peter Loescher, President and CEO, Siemens AG.

The keys of the mobile healthcare clinic were symbolically handed over to Dr Trehan by Mr Loescher.

Even though the national capital region benefits from highly-advanced healthcare facilities, many rural areas around Gurgaon still lag far behind in basic healthcare services. Siemens’ mobile healthcare clinic will help to bridge the gap. In Dr Trehan’s own words: “The mobile clinic answers the needs of the Indian rural population. With facilities such as ultrasound, pathology, mammography, laboratory equipments and accessories, EGG and even a film development unit, it allows for advanced medical examination which will improve the lives of many individuals who find quality healthcare inaccessible.”
