Sets up a 200-bed multispeciality children hospital in Marathahalli

Rainbow Children’s Hospital announced its entry into Bengaluru with a 200-bed multispeciality children hospital in Marathahalli. Reportedly, built with an investment of about Rs 90 crores, it’s a built-to-suit super specialty children’s hospital with advanced perinatal center in Marathahalli, Bengaluru.

This tertiary care children’s hospital houses advanced intensive care services for newly born and children dedicating almost 35 per cent of the beds. These intensive care services would cater for the city of Bengaluru and also offer transport services up to 200 km radius of Bengaluru. The hospital has established all the sub-specialities under one roof including neurology, nephrology, gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, endocrinology and advanced paediatric surgery.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Ramesh Kancharla, Chairman and MD, Rainbow Group of Hospitals said, Our vision is to bring world-class multispeciality children’s care along with advanced intensive care services to the city of Bengaluru and rest of Karnataka. We all know that Bengaluru is one of the fastest growing cities with a large young parents and children population. We believe that the advanced healthcare model for children is the need of the hour,” he added.

He also emphasised, “In India, we do not have children specialty hospitals like in the developed world. Globally there are dedicated children hospitals with capacity of up to 800 beds. India is mainly driven by primary and secondary healthcare. Tertiary care specialities for children are not built mainly because they are viewed not to be financially viable. There is also lack of expertise in the pediatric specialty. The high cost of infrastructure is another deterrent. Unlike adult hospitals, children’s hospital requires very skilled professionals on site 24×7 as 80 per cent of cases in a children hospital are emergencies compared to 20 per cent in adult hospitals.”
