The Northeast is set to get a major boost in the healthcare sector with the launch of the region’s first super-speciality hospital in Guwahati, said the hospital’s chairman Dr Subhash Khanna on Friday. Swagat Super Speciality Surgical Institute (SSSSI) would provide services in diverse surgical disciplines in an effort to stop exodus of patients to the mega-cities for want of better treatment facilities, Dr Khanna told reporters.

“The new venture of Swagat Hospitals Pvt Ltd aims to bring best of the world’s equipment and medical facilities, state-of-the-art infrastructure, cutting edge technology and dedicated round the clock services of leading super specialists of the region under one roof to the people of Assam and the Northeast”, he said. The hospital would provide services in all major surgical specialities including cancer surgery, orthopaedics and neurosurgery, minimal invasive surgery, bariatric (weight loss) and metabolic surgery, hepatobiliary and gastro-intestinal surgery, aesthetic and plastic surgery, ENT and head and neck surgery and gynaecology, Dr Khanna said.

He also planned to introduce other major procedures including transplant surgery and robotic surgery. Speaking about the Institute’s several firsts in the region, the Chief Medical Director said “The hospital has one of its kind Modular Operation theatre complex with zero bacteria technology and I-SUITE”. “I-SUITE represents a form of audio-visual integration whereby OT functions run on voice command and operative visuals and videos can be transmitted via satellite to any part of the world,” Dr Khanna explained. Other facilities include a fully equipped and spacious surgical intensive care unit, a unique Central Sterile Supply Department to ensure high level sterilisation and disinfection of surgical instruments thereby lowering infection rates, he said.

Besides MRI, CT scan, ultra and doppler radiology facilities, Dr Khanna said “An added attraction is installation of the first open air multi-level parking in the Northeast within the institute complex in an effort to relieve vehicular congestion.”
