Enhanced clinical bandwidth is our priority, especially as the world faces an ever increasing threat of non-communicable diseases and complex disease patterns." Mr. Saileswaran, who also addressed the gathering, said that the newly-upgraded hospital would add more clinical bandwidth to the existing facility. He added that a comprehensive care service called 'Apollo Care Plan' is also on offer, which can be availed free of cost for the entire family after the head of family registers at the hospital.
