Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) August 23, 2012 -- Come September and Navi Mumbai will see a feather being added to its cap of health care infrastructure with the launch of AEHI. Advanced Eye Institute (AEHI), a premier multi-specialty eye hospital, located at Palm Beach Road, Sanpada will throw open its doors to the public from September. The hospital promises to provide comprehensive eye care with its multi-pronged approach ranging from world class diagnostic services for all eye diseases, out-patient services, surgical care, optometry, pharmacy and optical shop. An estimated 8,00,000 sufferers of vision problems out of the 30 lakh population of Navi Mumbai stand to benefit from this multi-specialty eye hospital.
The director of the Institute, Dr. Vandana Jain shares the story behind the curtains, "After my training and experience in various national and international institutes, (She has Fellowships in Cornea and Refractive Surgery from the prestigious L. V. Prasad Institute Hyderabad and Harvard University along with a MBA from Stanford University) I realized the lacunae in our current healthcare delivery models. Making patient the centre of healthcare delivery & service is the motivation behind AEHI."
And it is this acknowledgement of the healthcare industry being a service industry that sets AEHI apart. Says Mrs. Reema, a veteran eye care patient, "I have been in and out of many eye hospitals for a very long time, thanks to my long standing retina problems due to diabetes. Though I have no complaints with the clinical quality, hospitals in our country fail to realize that a patient's hospital experience is much more than the doctor's clinical acumen. With consumerism bringing the zero-tolerance-for-poor-service attitude to Indians, hospitals need to get their acts together." The director of Advanced Eye Institute, Dr. Vandana Jain echoes this sentiment when she says, "The large vacuum that is still prevalent in terms of personal touch and quality care continues to provide an opportunity for growth. We want to create a caring and philanthropic practice environment."
Services at AEHI will bring all eye specialties under one umbrella and these will include General Ophthalmology, Cornea & Refractive Surgery, Pediatric Ophthalmology, Vitreo-Retinal Surgery, Ocular Oncology, Neuro-Ophthalmology & Oculoplasty. Apart from these, AEHI aims to nurture clinical research in eye diseases, provide training to eye care Para-medical professionals, arrange community preventive eye health programs, establish international collaborations, and influence eye care patterns globally.
Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute has its long term plans clearly charted out. After its first centre in Navi Mumbai, AEHI plans to look at expansion into other tier II and tier III cities in India in phases.
There has been a huge focus in having well trained staff and motivated team of doctor's right from day1. AEHI has left no stone unturned in getting the best quality & advanced equipment for performing world class surgeries. This is well shown by the fact that Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute has already acquired the Femtosecond Laser Machine (Visumax) with the SMILE Technology (AEHI is the 8th Eye Hospital in the entire country to possess this) and the KXL Cross Linking System (Lasik Xtra) (AEHI is the 1st and currently only hospital in the entire state of Maharashtra to own this) reinforces that AEHI is a force to reckon with.
Advanced Eye Hospital & Institute will be operational from Mondays to Saturdays between 9.00 am to 8.00 pm and is located at 30, The Affaires, Palm Beach Road, Sector 17, Sanpada, Navi Mumbai 400705.
