We understand that hospitalisation can be a stressful experience, not just for the patient but also for the family and friends. At Medanta we pay attention to the small things that can help make your hospital stay a little bit easier. Medanta has enlisted various service providers to help organise a range of ancillary services for the convenience of patients, caregivers and visitors.
Patients, families and visitors can find comfortable and safe accommodation in the vicinity of the hospital. There is a range of accommodation available from low budget guest houses to the finest luxury hotels. Our patient support services team can help you with reservations and discounts or preferential rates.
Our travel service desk will help you coordinate bookings and ticketing for domestic and international flights, booking bus tickets and railway tickets and also facilitating ‘Tatkal’ railway ticket confirmations. Patients and visitors may also make taxi bookings from the travel desk.
Tour packages can be availed including religious or sightseeing packages which are managed by experienced travel professionals with an option of customised packages as per specific needs and demands.
Medanta provides a wide range of dietary offerings for its patients. Care is always taken regarding each patient’s diet; taking into consideration the doctor’s prescription, allergies, nutritional requirements as well as personal preferences. Specialised international patient diets are also available.
Medanta’s department of dietetics has partnered with the food and beverage department to launch a Teaching Kitchen. The" Teaching Kitchen" is a culinary program where expert dieticians help caregivers with tips for leading a healthy lifestyle and the chef demonstrates easy cooking techniques for making delicious healthy and happy meals.
