Rockland Hospital plans geriatric care centre. New Delhi, India, 2010.

"Rockland Hospital plans geriatric care centre in Manesar branch".

By Shruti Verma Apr 04 2010 , New Delhi

"Rockland Hospital, in association with IFC, a me­mber of the World Bank gro­up, is setting up a 60-room ancillary hub for geriatric care at its upcoming 250-be­dded multi-specialty hospit­al in Manesar, Haryana.


The specialised centre will be operational by July 2011. The hospital manag­ement has claimed that it is the first of its kind geriatric department in the country. It will have an assisted living programme for patients. It will have integrated international designs to match 60 specially designed geriatric care units. This hub will also have rehabilitation services, a gymnasium and swimming pool.


While there are advanced geriatric care units in Europe and the US, most hospitals in India lack such specialised centres. The multi-speciality hospital will have all OPD and emergency services. The hospital will focus on research and niche specialties like cancer and haematology. It would also have minimal invasive surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, cardiology and orthopaedics among other specialties."
