KATHMANDU: Mr. Rupak Barua, Group CEO of AMRI Hospitals, in his maiden visit to the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal as the official representative of Kolkata-based AMRI Hospitals, shared his vision and plans to provide world-class quality care for the people of Nepal. During his two-day trip, Mr. Barua is also scheduled to meet a number of top government officials in Kathmandu to discuss ways on how to streamline medical tourism between the two neighboring countries.

Talking in Kathmandu on 18th July 2023, Mr. Barua said that he has visited Nepal on several occasions as part of high-level delegations, but this is his first visit as the Group CEO of AMRI Hospitals. “I have always liked visiting Nepal. I’ve been particularly attracted to its natural beauty, the people, and rich cultural heritage. India and Nepal have deep ties for centuries, and we would like to further explore our relationship through cooperation and shared values.”

Mr. Barua informed that currently around 8,500-9,000 patients from Nepal visit AMRI Hospitals annually for both OPD consultations and in-patient treatment, most of which are for complications related to cardiology, orthopedics, urology, nephrology, and neurology. He also talked about the Group’s state-of-the-art facilities, its mission of putting “Patient First,” its vision of offering value-for-money treatment and quality healthcare services, along with high-tech transplant facilities with dedicated teams of doctors, nurses, and support personnel.

“We are among the largest private healthcare networks in Eastern India, with three hospitals in the Kolkata metropolitan area and another multispecialty hospital in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. We treat around 450,000 patients annually and conduct more than 45,000 surgeries and procedures. We have an impressive roster of world-class physicians and surgeons who are supported by a well-trained army of nurses and paramedical staff. We also substantially invest in technology, which helps us offer even better clinical outcomes to our patients,” he said.

During his two-day visit, Mr. Barua will address two gatherings of top doctors from Nepal, along with renowned Cardiothoracic & CTVS Surgeon, Prof (Dr.) Siddhartha Mukherjee, and well-known Nephrologist, Dr. Arghya Majumder. At both events on 18th July 2023 in Kathmandu and on 19th July 2023 in Kirtipur, senior Government officials will grace the occasion.
