Bengaluru: Karnataka Health Minister Dinesh Gundu Rao stated on Friday that the Congress government is receptive to collaborating with the private sector.

During the inauguration of the ‘Manipal Ambulance Response Service – Neonatal-care on Wheels’ (MARS-NOW) in Bengaluru, Rao emphasized the government’s primary objective of serving the people and ensuring their good health. He also highlighted the government’s commitment to providing the highest quality healthcare at affordable rates, expressing a willingness to partner with private entities, including Sudarshan Ballal, Chairman of Manipal Hospitals, to enhance service delivery.

Rao praised the concept of an ICU-on-wheels for infants, considering it a commendable initiative.

The MARS-NOW initiative is designed to offer continuous medical support to infants in need of emergency Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) care while en route to the hospital. This transport service will benefit not only patients visiting Manipal Hospitals but also those residing in Bengaluru and the surrounding regions of Karnataka who require such assistance.

H. Sudarshan Ballal, Chairman of Manipal Hospitals, emphasized their commitment to providing top-notch neonatal care, especially during critical periods, through their Neonatal Transport Service. He noted that this service exemplifies their expertise in neonatal care and underscores their dedication to compassionate healthcare.
