Masina Hospital Inaugurates Day Care Unit And Lobby

On the 4th June, 2022, Masina Hospital inaugurated its new Day Care Unit with Operation Theaters and Endoscopy Suites. This marks yet another feather in the cap of the hospital, which has been growing from strength to strength in enhancing its facilities to keep in sync with modern hospitals, over the last few years.

The inaugural function was held in the Godrej Memorial Centenary Hall, where Dr. S N Mehra, Medical Director, welcomed dignitaries from Credit Suisse India and the Trustees who were escorted on the Dias by Dr. Vispi Jokhi, CEO – Masina Hospital, who gave a warm welcome note.

He emphasized that all the facilities were state-of-the-art and on par with the recently created main operation theatres.
