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.

Discharge process

 Your nurse will assist you in the discharge process which may take few hours. Once your final bill is generated, you are expected to clear your dues by paying cash or by a credit/debit card. The nurse will hand over your discharge summary and other belongings (like thermometer, urinal bedpan, etc. used during the course of your stay). The nurse will then explain the medications that you need to continue after your discharge and any other follow-up instructions. In case you need a medical ambulance to drop you at your home, then you need to inform your nurse and he/she will make the necessary arrangement.
