“It is not only the largest but also the most advanced, high-tech and ultra-modern hospital for kidney dialysis. Not just that, the treatment will be 100 per cent free. At this hospital, dialysis will be done to patients completely free of cost,” said DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa in a video on Twitter.
He further said that the costs will be borne with the help of CSR – corporate social responsibility, those who contribute for community services or through government’s Ayushman Bharat scheme.
“There will be no counter here to collect money. Only patients will be registered. This will be the first hospital where no counters will be available to take money,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Sikh body is working on a world-class diagnostic centre where tests like MRI and CT Scan will be done in just Rs 50.
“After India’s biggest Kidney Dialysis Hospital, the world-class Diagnostic Centre is also almost ready. The Center would open at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib where the needy will be provided MRI, CT Scan and Ultrasound services just at ₹50/-,” said Sirsa.
