Mumbai as a treatment city at a Glance:
India’s most populous city, Mumbai, and its surrounding area are
home to 20 million, making it the world’s fifth most populated urban
center. Formerly Bombay (Portuguese for “good bay”), Mumbai is the
economic and entertainment hub of India.
With six large private hospitals serving international patients and a
number of specialty treatment centers, Mumbai now counts healthcare
as one of its most important economic assets, along with
engineering, information technology, and film. (“Bollywood” is king
in India, and any hospital visitor with a television will be treated
to some lively and colorful cinematic productions.) Mumbai is
India’s New York, bristling with commercial activity and cultural
diversity, extreme in every imaginable way.
Mumbai is headquarters to two large, multi-specialty hospitals,
including the JCI-accredited Wockhardt Hospital and Heart Institute
and the renowned Jaslok Hospital. Wockhardt’s treatment center in
Mumbai has established five super-specialty clinics for cardiology,
neurology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, and minimal access surgery.
One of Wockhardt’s two super-specialty heart Institutes is here,
offering a full range of cardiovascular diagnostics and surgeries.
Jaslok Hospital, one of the India’s oldest and most venerated, offers
35 specialties, with a fully loaded International Patient Services
center. Mumbai also hosts smaller, prestigious, single-specialty
clinics, such as the JCI-accredited Shroff Eye Hospital and the
Rotunda Center for Human Reproduction.
About Mumbai City:
Known as ‘Bombay’ until 1996, Mumbai is the commercial capital
of India. Its original name "Bombay" emerged from the Portugal term
"Bom Bahai" meaning good bay or harbor. The city was formed by the
reclamation of 7 islands on the central-western coast along the
Arabian Sea. Mumbai lies 1400 km west of the Indian capital, New
Delhi. It is also known as Manchester of India. Mumbai boomed into a
textile city in the 19th Century. With the opening up of the Suez
Canal in 1869 the city's future as India's primary port, was
assured. Now it is the second biggest city in the world. The Glamour
of a prolific film industry, cricket on the open areas on weekends,
bhel puri (Indian snack) on the Chowpatty beach and red
double-decker buses enhance the charm of the city.
