In a first of its kind venture in the healthcare sector, SuVitas Holistic Healthcare launched its transition care facility with 60 beds, in Srinagar Colony in Hyderabad, today. Championing the focused segment of healthcare continuum, bridging hospital and home across specialties such as cardiology, neurology, orthopedics and early-stage oncology, SuVitas aims to make high-quality rehabilitation care available and accessible across India.
Patients treated for serious ailments are often prone to hospital-acquired infections, but are however, not completely recovered to go back home. This is where SuVitas steps in, with a home-like environment clubbed with 24 X 7 medical supervision, effectively bringing down the possibility, as well as cost of re-hospitalization. Led by an expert team of doctors, physiotherapists, skilled nurses, and well-trained caretakers, SuVitas provides methodical recovery through personalized treatment, therapy and fun activities. With protocol-based programs involving the treating doctor and the patient’s family, SuVitas helps individuals achieve enhanced flexibility, strength and independence.
In developed economies such as the USA and UK, the rehabilitation sector has evolved alongside the mainstream medicine, with an average of 8 beds in transition care for every 10 beds in hospitals. However, the case is not so in India, with the primary focus being on disease-care, rather than post-hospitalization recovery.
SuVitas is designed to address this need, and create a better eco-system focused on patient wellbeing, independence and confidence. Sateesh Andra, Founder, Investor and Board Member, SuVitas said “Given the continuously growing demand for healthcare and the tertiary bed capacity growth in India, transition care can easily scale up and go beyond a 10,000 bed requirement. Our plan to rapidly build and scale SuVitas to a 1000 bed enterprise will make us the largest and most credible player in this space in the near future. We have the potential to compete and go beyond the best of the current healthcare players in Indian market.”
A wide range of services including skilled nursing care, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychological guidance and medical supervision enable end-to-end rehabilitation. Emphasizing on the need for a holistic approach for recovery,“SuVitas as the first organized Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility and Skilled Nursing Facility player in India will bring in the needed specialization in this neglected field but will also be place for physiotherapists and nurses to excel as professionals in their own right and not just follow the orders of the doctors,” said Dr. Ramesh Babu Byrapaneni, Founder, Investor and Board Member, SuVitas.
The SuVitas facility hosts a friendly atmosphere where patients and their families can receive compassionate support for overcoming the physical and emotional impact of disease or injury. Technology-enabled family engagement and community sessions are salient features of the SuVitas experience. The medical team at SuVitas stay connected with the treating doctor for providing coordinated medical care, while skilled nursing staff provides best-in-class services to help patients cope with the crisis of severe disease.
