The department of Internal Medicine, which is an integral part of the Multispeciality Hospital, provides comprehensive medical care to patients above 14 years of age. One of the finest facilities of its kind in the region, it offers outpatient, inpatient divisions and 24/7 emergency care services with emphasis on excellent Doctor-Patient communication.
The outpatient department, which offers a wide range of medical services, has Consultants and Specialists who render expert care to patients with communicable as well as non-communicable diseases like Hypertension, Dyslipidaemia and Endocrinological disorders like Diabetes Mellitus. It also promotes the concept of preventive and proactive healthcare through a dedicated wellness clinic – a one-of-its-kind special, preventive healthcare clinic. Inpatients are given specialised medical attention to ensure minimal hospital stay; and stringent safety measures are observed in the patient care areas to prevent nosocomial infections. Multi-disciplinary in approach, the department provides efficient support services to other specialities by attending to cross-referrals and carrying out procedures like pleural tapping, lumbar puncture, ascetic tapping and bone marrow aspiration.
The expert team of ACLS/BLS trained Doctors, Nurses and Ancillary staff provides holistic treatment to patients, with an optimal, evidence-based approach.
