GURGAON, March 13: W Hospital, India’s largest speciality hospital for women, opened recently in the presence of actress Juhi Chawla, renowned women healthcare specialist, Dr. Pramod Kumar Sharma, and other dignitaries. Welcoming the latest addition to Gurgaon’s healthcare infrastructure, medical experts said such specialized facilities would go a long way in addressing women’s health concerns. The one-of-its-kind, ultra-modern facility with 100 beds is exclusively focused on fulfilling all healthcare needs of women and young children. Set up by the Pratiksha Hospitals Group, it offers latest technology and world-class infrastructure in gyecology to cater to women of all age groups, from adolescence to menopausal and post-menopausal. Also available are speciality services related to IVF, maternity, neo- tology and paediatrics. The ambience, though luxurious, offers a home-like environment to serve every woman’s individual health needs. Apart from treatment-oriented service, W Hospital focuses equally on providing awareness and education to women, on the importance of preventive health check-ups, and on emotiol and mental health wellness programs.

Addressing the audience on the occasion, actress Juhi Chawla said: “I am overjoyed to witness the opening of W Hospital, the first niche hospital in the region meant exclusively for women and children. It helps fulfil a long-felt need for a world-class facility which can provide end-to-end care for all health challenges confronting women. Issues related to women’s well-being have always been close to my heart, and as a mother of two children, I well understand that the health of a woman does not relate to her alone – it also has a deep impact on families and communities and well-being of children. The country needs more such facilities specializing in women’s health, and I hope this is the beginning of a new trend in Indian healthcare.”

“It is time we women become more responsible towards our own health. Our modern lifestyles and aspirations mean we are busier than ever before. We juggle multiple roles and try to be – and indeed are – superwomen. But this lifestyle takes a toll on our physical health and emotiol well-being. It is important for us to be proactive in maintaining and improving our health rather than only waking up after we lose it. Today, on the occasion of Intertiol Women’s day, I would urge every woman to make her health number-one priority in life,” Juhi Chawla added. This was stated in a press release.
