Aarvi Encon Limited, one of India’s leading technical manpower outsourcing companies, recently announced its partnership with Saifee Hospital, Mumbai. Through the course of the 3-year agreement, the company will be paying up to INR 6 lakhs per year towards treatment and other related services to the Hospital’s OPD for the lower-income group.
Through the collaboration, Aarvi Encon will cover the medical examination and treatment of those patients who visit Saifee Hospital’s ‘Free Out Patient Department (OPD)’. These majorly constitute those people who come in for emergency situations and are not able to afford the costs of investigations/check-ups and the medications prescribed to them.
In particular, Aarvi Encon will reimburse the costs of patients who have met with accidents at various railway stations in Mumbai. These include stations such as Churchgate, Marine Lines, Charni Road and Grant Road. Under the initiative, a total of 12 medical tests and their medications will also be subsidised by Saifee Hospital and covered by Aarvi Encon on behalf of the eligible patients. These include CBC, ESR, Cholesterol, ECG, and Chest X-Ray, amongst others.
Speaking on the partnership, Mr V.D Sanghavi, Managing Director, Aarvi Encon Limited said, “At Aarvi Encon, we believe it is the right of every individual to have access to quality medical care. However, often due to lack of information, high costs and access to facilities, those in need are deprived of basic healthcare, even in emergency situations. We are happy to be partnering with a highly reputed medical institution such as Saifee Hospital for the cause and are sure several of the needy will benefit through this initiative. Aarvi Encon will continue to be part of such initiatives to help those in need, and we hope to encourage our contemporaries to get involved in similar ways.”
Commenting on the same, Dr V.P. De Sa, Director – Medical Affairs, Clinical Compliance & Governance, Saifee Hospital said, “We have a large number of patients coming in for treatment at our Free OPD on a daily basis. However, those in need, especially from the lower income groups, are often unaware of the facilities or avoid them due to lack of information and concerns about hidden costs involved. With the help of Aarvi Encon, we can reach out to more people and our expert doctors and other medical professionals will be able to cater to their needs effectively. We are glad to be a part of this great initiative.”
Aarvi Encon is amongst the country’s leading technical manpower outsourcing services companies pertaining to sectors such as Oil & Gas, Power, Petrochemical, Pipeline and Infrastructure, with over 30 years of experience in the field. Through the tie-up with Saifee Hospital, it aims to help the hospital cater to the needs of people from lower income groups by giving them access to treatment form expert doctors in emergency situations at no cost. Via this collaboration, Aarvi Encon hopes to reach out to a larger number of people and make them aware of such services that can help them in their difficult times.
