Niira Radia led Nayati Healthcare recently saved the life of a pilgrim who fell into a semi-conscious state on his way to the holy shrine of Badrinath. Walking through the mud, sludge, and rocky terrain, MK Sevaya began feeling dizzy and nauseous.
The absence of proper medical facilities often forces people from different parts of the country to travel long distances and spend huge amounts of money to be able to consult the specialists in larger cities for their loved ones.However, the adverse impact of this scenario is often overlooked. The undue emotional stress, along with the cost of travel, adds to the patients’ and their families’ misery, leading to deteriorating condition of the afflicted person.
The idea for Nayati was conceived by its founder and promoter Niira Radia during her visit to Badrinath Dham, where she witnessed a large number of pilgrims suffering due to the lack of proper medical facilities. To address this issue, Radia started her venture in the form of mobile medical units, and provided the much-needed medical attention to the pilgrims in Badrinath.
The mobile units of Nayati Healthcare are spread across the areas of Uttarakhand like Rudraprayag, Karanprayag, and Chamoli in Badrinath. They are well-equipped with a dedicated team of experienced doctors and paramedic staff.
The entire team reaches the town a week before the temple is opened for the general public. They usually spend the first few days setting up medical facilities in the vans. These mobile units are well-equipped to treat all kinds of emergencies with the provision of Lab, X-Ray services, and OPD related aid, Dr Krishna explained.
With such robust initiatives by Nayati Healthcare in place, India’s rural and semi-urban areas are now getting easy access to the most advanced medical facilities available in the country. However, what the country still needs is more initiatives like these.
