Ahmedabad: To provide quality healthcare at affordable prices, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has tied-up with Zydus Hospitals to set up a modern polyclinic (health centre) facility at Becharaji near Mehsana.
“Residents of Becharaji and its neighbouring areas need access to quality healthcare at affordable rates. Maruti Suzuki has taken a first step by setting up a polyclinic to offer primary health and diagnostic services,” said MSIL managing director Kenichi Ayukawa, who, along with Zydus Hospitals’ founder chairman Pankaj Patel, inaugurated the facility on Wednesday.
Equipped with advanced diagnostics equipment, the centre will offer facilities such as x-ray, a TMT machine, ECG, pathology laboratory, ultrasound, ambulance and a pharmacy, among others.
The facility will be managed and operated by Ramanbhai Foundation through Zydus Hospitals, a leading healthcare services provider. The centre will be fully funded by MSIL, through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm, Maruti Suzuki Foundation.
“Under this CSR initiative, Maruti Suzuki will invest Rs 3.3 crore to set up and fully equip the facility. As services will be offered at subsidized rates, MSIL will bear the cost of maintaining and operating the facility,” the auto giant said in a statement.
Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC), the parent company of Maruti Suzuki, operates a car manufacturing plant in Becharaji.
