Spread across 43 acres, Medanta is one of India’s largest specialty hospitals located in Gurgaon, a bustling town near New Delhi. The hospital was founded in 2009 by renowned cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Naresh Trehan. Medanta has 1,250 beds and over 350 critical care beds with 45 operating theatres catering to over 20 specialties.
Medanta is specially geared to international patients, helping generate a growing trend in medical tourism. According to Indian estimates, almost 200,000 foreigners fly to India for medical treatment every year. International patients come because of the world-class facilities available at affordable costs. Indian hospitals meet international standards of cleanliness and hygiene and their top-class infrastructure suits the needs of patients coming for treatments such as heart surgery, knee replacement, orthopaedic treatments, cosmetic surgery, eye care, or dental treatment.
The hospital has recently installed a flight type dishwasher of the M-iQ model. Deepak Batra is General Manager, F & B at Medanta, who explains: “Medanta is a high volume operation requiring a durable and quality cleaning solution. Meiko is a world leader in flight type dishwashers and was a natural choice for our operation, as the health and safety of our patients is our top priority. We all know that this machine has the design property of a heat recovery system which is saving a lot in the terms of energy consumption.”
The M-iQ features a superb air management system and process-oriented heat recovery module which eliminate the need for a direct exhaust air connection, which helps to keep the area cool and generates no extra load to building HVAC system. As well as ensuring optimum energy efficiency, Meiko’s M-iQ machines also include a one-of-a-kind filter system which enables the machine to clean itself. The pumped rinse system only needs to be filled once to completely remove all the dirt from the machine.
