| | APRIL 201819Bringing the Smile of Good Health to Gujarat & BeyondZydus Hospital+We often spend some of the most challenging and critical times of our lives in Hospitals. It's an irony that the clutter of cam-ouflaged unclear information lacking scientific rationale has clouded the patient(s) and their families, steering over the years towards the decay of trust and transparency of healthcare ecosystem. Despite the advantage of novel technologies, there's a large gap that exists today be-tween the demand for quality healthcare and its delivery in India. Af-ter governing a paradigm shift in the Indian pharma industry through Zydus Cadila Healthcare network, Pankaj Patel, Founding Chairman & Managing Director, Zydus Hospital and the Indian pharma magnate, is now on an expedition to bring back the trust and transparency in our country's healthcare systems through Zydus Hospital ­ a super specialty medical in-stitution based out of Ahmedabad.Setting Benchmarks in Empathetic Patient CareIn the year 2011, Zydus acquired an under-construction mall in Anand ­ a city 75 km away from Ahmedabad, and molded it into a hospital with 180-bed capacity, which in fact was the dawn of a novel epoch in Gujarat's healthcare ecosystem. From Anand, it took no time for Zydus to hallmark its presence in Ahmedabad by establishing a 550-bed quaternary care hospital spanning 17 floors, wherein today it contentedly looks forward to its mis-sion-2020 ­ creating a total of 1500 beds under Zydus umbrella.
