Bob Riney, Chief Operating Officer for Henry Ford Health System, says the agreement will also benefit families in Michigan and beyond. "The sharing of best practices that were created by our team provides value through the growth of employment right here in Detroit. This was a significant part of our goal when we established the Innovations program and we are thrilled to see our efforts mature and to fuel our growing role in the local economy."
In its first phase, Naruvi Hospital will have 250 beds, with plans to increase that number to 400. The hospital will provide primary care as well as advanced specialty care in such fields as cardiology and orthopedics.
Chairman and Managing Director of Pearl Human Care, Mr. G.V. Sampath says, "We are delighted at the opportunity to work with Henry Ford Health System in setting up a world class health care facility at Vellore. We believe Henry Ford's experience will bring to India modern techniques and practices from the United States that will help revolutionize health care in the region."
Pearl Human Care is planning to establish a network of multi specialty hospitals in and around Vellore that will deploy cutting edge technology and globally advanced medical protocols. Architectural planning for the campus has begun. Naruvi Hospital is expected to open in 2019.
