The hospital also caters to the medical and health needs of a number of referred patients from the dispensaries and colony hospitals managed by MCD, the nearby public hospitals managed by Delhi administration and many charitable and private institutions. The hospital attempts to fulfil all criteria of a “Health Promoting Hospital” and has a healthy initiative of community mobilization in addition to numerous employee welfare schemes.
