People from various social, economic, and geographic backgrounds across India go on pilgrimages in a quest to attain spiritual merit. On the journey, most of them are deprived of even basic medical facilities due to rocky terrain, lack of resources, and privatization of healthcare facilities.
A huge portion of the Indian population die from preventable diseases and infections. In order to avoid this, it is necessary to make quality healthcare accessible to all. Nayati Healthcare is working towards just that since the establishment of its first facility at Badrinath in 2012 , says Niira Radia, Chairperson and Promoter, Nayati Healthcare. The entity first set up four mobile units with a team of doctors and paramedic staff near the local police station, bus stand, as well as the place of worship in Badrinath.
Today, Nayati Healthcare has 17 mobile units spread across different places in and around Badrinath like Rudraprayag, Karanprayag, and Chamoli. While most of the vans that are set up belong to Mazda, some of them are the Tata Winger and Magic models.
“After the successful intervention in Badrinath, we began spreading our wings to Tier II and Tier III cities. As soon as we garnered enough funds through private equity and bank loans, we established super specialty hospitals in Mathura, Delhi, and Agra. We are now in the process of setting up healthcare centre in other cities like Amritsar and Gurugram as well,” says Niira Radia.
