Since the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak has evolved into a critical health emergency, causing several deaths and leaving many more to battle the impact of the disease. Renowned health experts and organizations like WHO (World Health Organization) and CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention), Ministry of Health, Govt of India have strongly advised people to stay at home and follow all social distancing protocols to limit the spread of the coronavirus and prevent cross-infection.

We are strictly following all the safety procedures and social distancing protocols, sanitization guidelines, and infection control measures given by WHO and the Ministry of Health to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 virus; and to warrant the safety of our patients, our medical team, paramedical staff, and the community.

In keeping with the guidelines set by WHO and the health ministry, we are taking all possible infection control measures to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our safety measures include:

Please remember that any patient showing COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed to enter our premises.
Visitor Restrictions: As a part of our safety measures, we restrict the number of visitors who can accompany a patient. At present, only essential visitors are allowed to attend to the patient as a part of our commitment to keeping our patients safe from the coronavirus.
