Mumbai and Healthcare
Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the financial, commercial and entertainment capital of India. It lies on the west coast of India and its population is estimated to be 21.3 million (2016 cenus). “Mumbai never Sleeps”, is what you hear from everybody. Being the most happening city in India, it faces the same burden of diseases as any other city of India. Accordingly, there have been great and continuous efforts in improving the healthcare facilities of the city.
It is said that Mumbai has the best public – healthcare infrastructure in India. But it is also true that there is a huge shortfall of medical professionals to serve this huge population. According to the recently released report “State of the Health” by Praja, state and municipal hospitals in Mumbai are short of 26% of healthcare workers and nurses, 44% of doctors, 38% of medical lecturers and 25% of paramedical staff. With all this, the healthcare challenges are obvious.
What are the recent developments to cater this huge population?
Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) plays a vital role in building the healthcare infrastructure of the city. They run primary, secondary and tertiary levels end – to – end health posts, dispensaries and post-partum centers. The spread of the healthcare facilities is magnificent. BMC in partnership with the private players runs many clinics, dispensaries and scan centers.
Pay Half the MRI Scan price in Mumbai, Shocking!
The earlier expensive MRI scan in Mumbai are set to become cheaper. Mumbai has numerous private hospitals. But most of the Mumbai’s population chooses to go to the state-run hospitals because they are affordable. BMC has also been working towards providing affordable healthcare to all the people. Under the PPP (Public Private Partnership) signed between BMC and Private players, MRI scans will be charged at a fair and nominal price. These healthcare labs have acquired new high end scan machines that provide quality services and reports at par with the private and expensive hospitals.
The actual cost of MRI scan in Mumbai’s private hospitals & MRI scan centers ranges between INR 8,000 to INR 20,000. Appointments for the same MRI scans through healthcare providers like BookMyScans will be available up to ten times cheaper starting from INR 3,999.
