Let’s say you need to see a dermatologist for your acne, and your dermatologist refers you to an endocrinologist to get an evaluation of your hormone levels. Visiting different hospitals to get screened and run diagnostics will take a lot of time and energy out of you. And you will also have to spend money at each of these centres separately time and again. 

So what can you do to cut-down time, cost and energy? Visit a Multispecialty hospital. 

A multispecialty hospital treats patients who need treatment from various fields of medicine under one roof and also provides surgical and diagnostic services. Unlike general hospitals that only provide primary care treatments, a multispecialty hospital is staffed with an expert team of doctors and specialists. From urology to ophthalmology, a multispecialty hospital specializes in all. 

Now, the question is how will you know if it’s the best multispecialty hospital that has all the skills and technology to treat your condition? Here’s how 一 

Ask For Certifications And Accreditations

Certifications and accreditations will verify public acknowledgement of a healthcare organization’s achievement of accrediting requirements. In other words, an external review of the organization’s performance will be conducted to determine if the organization is up to par or not. If it meets all standards, certificates and accreditations are awarded to the hospital.

NABH accreditations will demonstrate the commitment of the hospital to provide quality care. It will also provide access to reliable and certified information on facilities, infrastructure and level of care.

Is the Hospital Integrated With Insurance Plans? 

Treatments and major surgeries can be very expensive. Choosing a hospital that accepts all major insurance plans, both public and private, as well as state and central government plans, is critical.

Contact your hospital and ensure they are well-integrated and support your insurance plan. Ayu Health Hospitals is one such hospital that accepts major insurance plans and, where possible, offers cashless services.

Are They Equipped With the Latest Tech To Offer the Best Treatment?

In multispecialty hospitals, it is uncommon to have to transfer a patient to another facility because they lack the necessary equipment to give proper care. In other words, to ensure that patients heal fast and with fewer potential relapses or recurrences, a multispecialty hospital should contain the most up-to-date technologies in each speciality.

Hence, you can expect the necessary screening and testing equipment, as well as qualified people for treating a variety of medical and physical ailments.

Do They Have a Team of Experts? 

In a multispecialty hospital, a team of experts will come together to help treat your condition as efficiently as possible. Your medical issue will be adequately addressed and doctors from many areas collaborate to diagnose and treat you without having to move you around. 

All members of the staff work together to ensure that you have all of your medical needs met as soon as possible, making it a one-stop destination for all of your health issues. 

Is the Hospital’s Infrastructure Reliable? 

Besides being equipped with the best doctors and all the latest technologies, a multispecialty hospital must also have amenities that ensure that the patients and even the family of the patient/caretakers have a comfortable and optimal experience. 

A multispecialty hospital must have spacious parking lots, ambulance facilities, 24/7 emergency rooms and pharmacies. 

Although you can find multispecialty hospitals around the country, several in each city, not all of them are up to the mark. The best hospitals in India have the patients and their families best interests in mind and will go to the greatest extent to ensure quality care. One such hospital is Ayu Health Hospitals.
