‘Some of Goa’s best doctors are with Manipal Hospital’

RAJEN PADUKONE, Managing Director & CEO of Manipal Health Enterprises, tells VIVA GOA about the hospital’s healthcare facilities and growth plans

Tell us about Manipal Hospital Goa’s beginnings as a cancer care hospital.
Around 1994, the Goa Cancer Society invited the Manipal Group to set up a cancer hospital. We initially started as a cancer hospital with around 40 beds. Over the years we added other medical streams to cater to the requirements of the people. It has culminated in the recent expansion, where we now have a full-fledged 250 bed multi-specialty hospital. 
The total investment in our Goa project will finally be around `130 crores, inclusing the cost of the new wing, renovation of the old building, operation theatres, intensive care units (ICUs) and equipment.

What specialisations does the hospital provide?
We are one of Goa’s largest multispecialty tertiary hospitals. Manipal Hospital Goa houses six state-of-the-art operation theatres, 32 high-end medical and surgical ICU beds, the latest equipment including MRI and CT, a state-of-the-art cathlab and a superior emergency and casualty centre.
