The absence of proper medical facilities often forces people from different parts of the country to travel long distances and spend huge amounts of money to be able to consult the specialists in larger cities for their loved ones.
However, the adverse impact of this scenario is often overlooked. The undue emotional stress, along with the cost of travel, adds to the patients’ and their families’ misery, leading to deteriorating condition of the afflicted person.
Bridging the demand and supply gap that exists in the current situation, Niira Radia’s Nayati Healthcare is making advanced healthcare accessible to the hinterlands of the country. The initiative, started in 2012, aims at reversing the existing scenario, by bringing healthcare facilities to the patients, instead of patients having to travel miles to access medical care.
According to the Chairperson of Nayati Healthcare, Niira Radia, there exists a dire need for quality healthcare in the hinterlands of the country, where people have been struggling to access medical aid for years, and continue to do so.
Nayati healthcare’s idea was conceived by its founder and chairperson Niira Radia during her visit to Badrinath Dham, where she witnessed a large number of pilgrims suffering due to the lack of proper medical facilities. To address this issue, Radia started her venture in the form of mobile medical units, and provided the much-needed medical attention to the pilgrims in Badrinath.
Expanding its operations, Nayati started a multi-specialty healthcare unit in Mathura, named Nayati Medicity. The establishment was aimed at providing quality healthcare services in the Braj region, for which the nearest place to get advanced medical treatments has been the national capital New Delhi, about 180 km away.
“Nayati’s mission is to take super specialty world-class healthcare closer to the masses by creating strategic hubs for treatment and facilities across the region, thereby contributing meaningfully to the transformation of the healthcare scenario of the country. All our locations have been chosen carefully considering the gap and the coverage area,” says Niira Radia.
The hospital aims at providing quality healthcare services in the Braj region. Earlier, people from this region had to travel to the national capital New Delhi, about 180 km away, to be able to access advanced medical treatments.
Niira Radia’s Nayati Healthcare stepped in to address this issue and introduced a fleet of 17 mobile medical units with 140 paramedic staff. Since its inception in 2012, the units have helped over four lakh pilgrims recoup from various illnesses, free of cost, and continue their journey.
“There exists a dire need for quality healthcare in the underdeveloped regions of the country. In these areas, people have been struggling to access medical aid for years and continue to do so,” says Niira Radia, Chairperson Nayati Healthcare
Niira Radia’s Nayati Arogya Mandir is well-equipped to treat all kinds of emergencies with the provision of Lab and OPD, with a 25-member dedicated team of doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, and technicians. The inbuilt monitors present in the stabilization beds record the vitals of the patients. Nayati has been providing medical and pharmacy services for the pilgrims and the local population, absolutely free of cost.
The Niira Radia led Healthcare also plays a key role in uplifting the general wellbeing of adolescent girls. Through various programs, it educates the young girls on various health topics such as menstrual health, nutrition, hygiene, etc. With the help of such initiatives, the condition of girl children is slowly improving in Uttar Pradesh. With an aim to address gender discrimination, Nayati Healthcare led by Niira Radia endeavours to promote better health care facilities for girl child in the hinterlands of Uttar Pradesh.
The hospital offers 20 percent discount on medical facilities for school going girl child. With this, it not only accesses quality healthcare facilities to the girl child but also encourages her to pursue education.
With such initiatives like Nayati Healthcare changing the prevailing scenario, India’s semi-urban areas and rural hinterlands are now getting easy access to the most advanced medical care available in the country.
