Continental Hospitals opened doors to its brand new – premium economy wing earlier today, ushering in a new paradigm of affordable, and state-of-the-art healthcare in India. The 50-bed premium economy wing offers private, single-patient cubicles along with all the features of a world-class quaternary care healthcare facility for just Rs 1500.
Inaugurated by the Honorable Consul General of USA in Hyderabad Ms Jennifer Larson, the premium economy is the first-of-its-kind facility across the Indian healthcare space. Conceived with the objective of offering patients of all economic strata the same treatment, privacy, and dignity – the premium economy wing is the brainchild of Continental Hospitals Chairman & Managing Director Dr Guru N Reddy.
Congratulating Continental Hospitals on the expansion of their services and the unveiling of the new premium economy wing US Consul General in Hyderabad Jennifer Larson lauded the hospital, its doctors, management & staff for their commitment to deliver world-class healthcare to every section of the society.
“It’s a truly remarkable facility and I congratulate each one of you! I’m sure it will be a wonderful resource for patients from all over,” the Consul General said.
Explaining the philosophy behind the premium economy wing, Dr Guru N Reddy underlined that at Continental Hospitals, every patient – irrespective of their economic & social standing – is valued and provided the same level of privacy and dignity.
“Efficient planning of infrastructure and services, on par with private & deluxe rooms with elegantly-designed and aesthetically pleasing facilities at a very affordable cost is to make our facilities inclusive for everyone. I understand that for a large section of the population, finances resources remain marginal but that shouldn’t mean that they do not have access to world-class healthcare, and thus we’re proud to take this initiative,” Dr Reddy.
Not just visually appealing the premium economy wing, will ensure utmost privacy & dignity for patients – a facet often ignored or determined by a patient’s economic status – highlighted Dr Reddy.
He also noted that the premium economy wing will be a fine working-experience for our doctors & nurses, and is consistent with our objective of making Continental the best workplace in healthcare.
