With Sir Ganga Ram Hospital joining the Centre’s ambitious healthcare initiative Ayushman Bharat, it has become the first 700-bed high capacity multi-speciality hospital from the national capital to join the scheme.
The hospital recently signed an agreement with the National Health Authority (NHA) under the Union Health Ministry for empanelment in the Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY).
The pact was signed by NHA CEO Dr Indu Bhushan and additional director (medical) of the hospital Dr Satendra Katoch.
“Sir Ganga Ram Hospital has become the first 700-bed high capacity multi-speciality tertiary care hospital from Delhi to join Ayushman Bharat. Many more will follow soon,” Bhushan said.
He said this is the first big hospital in Delhi to get empanelled into the scheme.
Under AB-PMJAY, the Government provides a healthcare insurance of worth Rs 5 lakh/family to people of vulnerable class for tertiary care. They could avail facilities at the empanelled hospitals which will in turn get grant from the Centre for the same.
According to Dr D S Rana, Chairman (BOM), Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, “We deeply value the ethos of Ayushman Bharat – Prime Minister Jan Arogya Yojna. Our hospital will contribute towards the vision of Prime Minister to provide health for all Indians.”
