About the Facility:
Breaking ground in Fall of 2019, this super hub clinic will provide integrated healthcare services for the communities in Baruipur, West Bengal and across the delta region and adjacent villages of South 24 Parganas. The clinic will offer access to general practice, maternal and child health care, eye care, dental care and telemedicine services. The super hub will be positioned centrally to manage the operations of the peripheral clinics (spokes) for seamless communication and escalation of remote patients in to the hub.
The proposed facility will cater to both rural and urban population of Baruipur subdivision which is around 4 million people. The region attracts migrant population from neighboring states and the facility will cater to the health needs of the migrant people. During high tides most of the region gets submerged completely 2 times during the day. The proposed facility will aid access to affordable and quality health services and lay the foundation of development for the fragile environment of South 24 Parganas.
