Gurugram is known as a medical tourism hub, given that it has some big names in private healthcare such as Fortis, Medanta and Artemis.
However, in terms of government-run hospitals, Gurgaon is fairly weak. The old Civil Hospital is being demolished and will be re-built. All health services have been shifted to the Civil Hospital in Sector 10.
The city also has Primary Health Centre or PHCs in urban villages mostly catering to the lakhs of migrant workers who live and work in Gurgaon and who cannot afford private healthcare.
Given the limited timings of the PHCs, migrant workers often turn to quacks.
In such a scenario it is imperative that all Gurugram residents across economic profiles have access to reliable healthcare information.
