Medanta, the Medicity, Gurgaon is coming to Mumbai at last

The B. D. Petit Parsee General Hospital (PGH), is signing an agreement with the Medanta Group (The Medicity, Gurgaon), on October 25 to equip, operate and manage a separate new Cosmopolitan Hospital in the PGH complex, according to the Bombay Samachar.

The new building will be built by PGH out of the donation of US$ 22.5 million generously donated by Pervin and Jal Shroff of Hong Kong. The new building will be the property of the PGH and no portion of the land or building is being alienated and will continue to remain with the Parsi community, the report states.

The new hospital will be cosmopolitan while the existing Hospital (PGH) will continue to be for Parsi Zoroastrians only. Medanta will pay an annuity to PGH as well as a percentage of the revenue earned. This will enable PGH to continue to offer medical relief to the disadvantaged.

The new cosmopolitan hospital will provide facilities in several disciplines such as cardiology, nephrology, oncology etc. Parsis will also get the benefit of the super-specialty and diagnostic facilities such as Petscan, MRI, etc. Medanta will give preference to Parsi patients referred by PGH, and charge concessional rates. They will financially bear the cost of training nurses and medicals at PGH.
