We provide emergency care to patients of all age groups who have developed an acute condition or suffered from an injury. As best practice we use a priority (Triage) system where the most seriously ill patients are seen first for provision of prompt care to those who need it most.

Triage (Sorting/ Prioritizing patients)
When a patient first arrives at the emergency department, a triage nurse (a specialist emergency department nurse) assesses the nature and severity of the condition by asking questions and taking vital signs. On the basis of this initial assessment the patient is categorized to a specific triage level and managed accordingly.
The care provided is based on best practices and standardised national and international protocols including: Chest pain, acute stroke, Sepsis and acute trauma. The facility includes access to high end investigative modalities like CT scan, MRI, and Angiography etc. The facility is also geared for emergency ventilator care, dialysis and surgery.
