AMRI Hospital-Salt Lake, one of the first multi-specialty healthcare service providers at the satellite township of Kolkata in the eastern parts of the metropolis, stands tall with a lineage of great service and value-for-money treatment. Catering to residents of areas not just in and around Salt Lake but also from far-flung places, the hospital is among the best in Kolkata.
Situated close to the Yuva Bharati Krirangan and the Sports Authority of India regional training centre, AMRI Hospital-Salt Lake’s proximity to the city airport adds an edge to it, making the unit a preferred healthcare destination for both Kolkatans and also those coming in from neighbouring nations, such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, and even African nations.
The hospital, which has around 220 beds across its two facilities, was started by a Kolkata-based private healthcare service provider. On September 17, 2001, the current promoters of AMRI Hospitals took over reins of the ailing unit and over the next few years turned the hospital into one the best in Eastern India. AMRI Hospital-Salt Lake started its annex building in 2011 in order to cope up with the growing needs of the community.
AMRI Hospital-Salt Lake is equipped with a variety of disciplines, including a state-of-the-art Intensive Care Unit, Cardiothoracic unit, Neo-natal ICU and Paediatric unit as part of its seamless operations. The hospital’s medical and surgical services, backed by an impressive roster of specialists, are supported by radiology and imaging, pathological laboratory and other departments.
Armed with sophisticated infrastructure, the hospital has top class diagnostic facilities, with 1.5 Tesla ultramodern MRI, 128 Slice CT scan and Fibro scan. Recognition by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) stands testimony to the hospital’s excellence in treatment quality, service and patient care.
The annex building, which is equipped with state-of-the-art dialysis unit and ICU facilities, also provides services for Eye, ENT, Dental, Gastroenterology and Nephrology, besides offering OPD and health checkup services. AMRI Hospital-Salt Lake, where doctors have performed noteworthy procedures, is driven by the motto ‘Quality Healthcare at Affordable Costs’.
It is a patient-friendly hospital, which is sensitive to pain and suffering, and offering integrated solutions to the hopes, concerns and worries of patients and their family members. The hospital prefers to mitigate medical complications and relieve anxiety with services that are acceptable, affordable, safe and reliable. The friendly and sympathetic staff also inspires the faith and confidence of patients in times of need and lends trained and quality support to doctors.
