However, all departments of the hospital at Noida have been operating satisfactorilyand are poised for future expansion and modernization following requisite financialinputs. Your hospital, despite the stiff competition and challenges from the largemultinational corporate hospitals, which have recently been established in the region, hasbeen able to maintain its position. In addition, your hospital, to maintain its image andreputation of providing quality and excellent healthcare services with a humane touch, hasbeen constantly endeavoring to upgrade its existing medical facilities at the centre.

During the year under report, the Imaging & Diagnostic Centre at LLRM MedicalCollege, Meerut (PPP Model) and at Sunder Lal Jain Hospital were Shutdown due to nonextension of facility agreement by the Medical College Authority and the non support &cooperation for the envisaged facility by Sunder Lal Jain Hospital, respectively.

In addition,there is a proposal to sell or otherwise dispose off Imaging & Diagnostic Unitsituated at Vimhans Hospital subject to the approval of the shareholders, owing to ongoinglack of interest of Vimhans in continuation of Neurology & Neurosurgery services at alarge scale.
