IMPORTANT NOTICE: At Fortis Healthcare, we are fully supportive of the National priorities set out by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. Further to the directives of the Government provided in their press release dated 8th Nov 2016, payments at Government hospitals can be made through 500 and 1000 Rupee denomination notes. In view of the hardship being caused to the large number of patients at private hospitals, we have made an urgent representation to the Government that this exemption should apply equally, for payments, at private hospitals. We are following up with the authorities and hope the Government will step in quickly to resolve this anomaly. Meanwhile, at Fortis hospitals across the country, we continue to accept payments through credit card, debit card and electronic banking transfers. As 500 and 1000 Rupee denomination notes are no longer legal tender we are only accepting 100 Rs and lower currency notes. As per Government regulation, a PAN card and legitimate ID proof is however required for payments in cash exceeding Rs 50,000. Meanwhile we continue to ensure that emergency cases get immediate medical attention without delay whatsoever and have put in more administrative staff and help desks to assist patients.

Mr. T S Rajagopal (72 years old retd. govt official) lead an independent life and did not depend on anyone for his day to day activities for cooking or cleaning. However one day he experienced severe pain in his hip, lower back and feet. He bore the pain for almost a month mistaking it for common aches due to old age. When the pain became worse and he was unable to stand or walk on his own he met a Neurologist at Fortis Hospitals Bangalore along with his daughter. He was diagnosed to be suffering from a Lumbar Disc Prolapse and a Nerve Compression and was referred to Dr. Praharaj, Consultant Neurosurgeon at Fortis Bangalore.Dr. Praharaj advised Mr. Rajagopal to undergo a spine surgery. The thought of surgery induced fear into Mr. Rajagopal but after the team's reassurance he agreed. His pain disappeared within a day of surgery and he now leads a normal independent life.
