Portea Medical partners with Cumbala Hill Hospital to offer after surgery care to cardiac patients

After the success of cardiac surgery, the patient is not completely out of danger, in fact, then the patient needs additional care at home, which the family members can’t give. With an aim to provide extended in-home care to the cardiac surgery patients, Portea Medical has recently joined hands with Cumbala Hill Hospital, one of the oldest hospitals of the country.

“Post cardiac surgery, recovery can be a long drawn out process taking many months or even years. Effective care, post-surgery, requires different interventions from a range of medical professionals. We are delighted to have found the right partner in Portea so our patients can continue to receive high quality medical care and support even after they have been discharged from our hospital,” said Dr Niraj Uttamani, CEO Cumbala Hill Hospital.

The services offered by Portea will be delivered to patients of Cumbala Hill Hospital, which also include remote ECG monitoring, chest physiotherapy, care of post surgical wounds, assistance with Activities of Daily Living such as maintaining patient hygiene, change of clothing, help with resumption of physical activities, advise on diet and nutrition plan, administering medicine etc.

Uttamani further added, “Our core attention at Cumbala Hill Hospital is on tertiary care in cardiology, cardiac surgery, laparoscopic surgery, high end urological, Eye, ENT surgeries and Hip and Knee Replacement surgeries. We would like to maintain our focus on advanced surgeries with minimum invasion, so that the cost and stay in the hospital is reduced. Therefore, having an effective home medical care partner like Portea is critical for us.”

The services will be delivered by Portea Medical staff, even its ancillary services such as medical equipment on hire, medicine delivery and collection of lab samples from home, will be made available to patients.

Commenting on the recent partnership between the two, Meena Ganesh, Co-Founder & CEO, Portea Medical said, “Typically cardiac surgery patients have to make several lifestyle changes. Their movements are also severely restricted. Portea’s mission is to deliver care with compassion and we are therefore very pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with Dr. Niraj and his team at Cumbala Hill Hospital to support the needs of patients whose medical needs can be met in a home care setting.”

She further elaborated, “The benefits of medical care delivered at home are immense and our ability to effectively care for patients at home ensures that the medical resources of premier healthcare institutions such as Cumbala Hill Hospital are being utilised for those who require critical care and surgical procedures or specialist consultation.” she added.

Portea’s services encompassing geriatric care, post-operative care, palliative care and physiotherapy are built around care plans that are specifically developed to cater for needs of individual patients.
