Welcome to the latest post in our blog series highlighting select Agile Global Health hospital partners! Today’s installment introduces Columbia Asia, an international healthcare group operating a chain of modern hospitals. Its first hospital in India commenced operations in 2005 in Hebbal, Bengaluru; today, Columbia Asia operates 11 facilities around the country. The group has a presence in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Mysore, Kolkata, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Patiala, and Pune.
“We have a passion for making people better,” asserts the hospital’s motto. Its patient volumes reflect this: Columbia Asia serves more than one million patients every year. To handle such numbers, a comprehensive electronic medical records system forms the core of the hospital’s information technology infrastructure.
Columbia Asia’s centers of excellence include:
- Aerospace Medicine
- Liver Transplant & Hepatic Surgery
- Neurosurgery & Neurology
- Medical Oncology
- Pulmonology & Sleep Medicine
- Prenatal & Postnatal Care
- Reproductive Medicine
Agile patients choosing Columbia Asia for care enjoy multiple guesthouse options within six minutes’ walking or driving distance of the hospital, with complimentary or very low-cost taxi service to and from. They can also select room packages that include full (all meals) or partial (breakfast only) board, according to their preferences. As always, Agile’s Operations Officers support our Columbia Asia patients with Indian SIM cards upon their arrival in country; facilitate currency exchange, translator assistance, and/or visa extension, if needed; and monitor our patient helpline 24/7 to respond to any unexpected need as it arises.
Agile patients who have completed treatment at Columbia Asia describe their experiences this way:
