  Superspeciality Services / Cardiac Care Centre  

There are at least 50 million patients of coronary artery disease in India. Recent statistics released by the WHO indicate that by 2015 heart attacks will be the single greatest 'killer' in India. Current projections suggest that by the year 2020 India will have the largest cardiovascular disease burden in the world.


To keep up with the rapid developments in the field of medicine, and to provide cardiac patients with advanced diagnostic and therapeutic facilities, the KEM Hospital started a high tech Anuskha KEM Catheterization Lab and state-of-the-art Cardiac Surgery facilities in August 2005.
