New Delhi [India], Feb.15 (ANI): Vice President M.Venkaiah Naidu inaugurated a 150-bed multi-speciality Rainbow Children's Hospital here on Wednesday.

Raibow is one of India's leading pediatric healthcare chains, and the Delhi hospital located in Malviya Nagar was opened in the presence of Union Health Minister J P Nadda, Ramesh Bidhuri, Member of Parliament and Somnath Bharti, Member of the Delhi Assembly.

The Madhukar Rainbow Children's Hospital is the first standalone pediatric hospital in the private sector in the NCR, designed, equipped and staffed exclusively to treat children and adolescents under one roof.

Speaking on the occasion, Naidu said, "Rainbow has made it possible to bring such a state of the art children healthcare facility in the city. My best wishes to Rainbow Group of hospitals and my compliments goes out to the entire team for bearing the beacon of exemplary perinatal and maternal healthcare in the country. If we join the public sector and private sector, healthcare facilities will progress much faster in the country. Affordability should always be taken into consideration to ensure the same."

Nadda said, "It is indeed a very unique idea which is uncommon in India, where under one roof all specialists will cater to the pediatric health needs of children. Multispeciality under one roof is certainly going to benefit the children of the state. This is going to be a breakthrough as far as diseases related to children are concerned. The government will not be able to execute the welfare alone, the private sector will have to come together as well. I wish my very best to Madhukar Rainbow Group of hospitals and this initiative that they have taken."

Dr.Ramesh Kancharla, Chairman and Managing Director of the Rainbow Group of Hospitals said, "We are extremely excited about our maiden foray into the NCR with the first children multispecialty hospital in the private sector in NCR, Delhi along with BirthRight by Rainbow, a specialized perinatal services unit. Our greatest measure of success has always been the number of smiling faces, love and appreciation from the children and their parents and the tremendous support from the medical community in all the other cities. As, we start our services here in the NCR, we look forward to measure our success in the same manner."

The Raibow Group has hospitals in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Vijayawada and Delhi. (ANI)
