This programme will address clinical, physical, emotional and dietary support to the patients.

In order to make them aware of these and help them lead a better quality of life, we have come up with this initiative”, said Mr. Abhinandan Dastenavar, Centre Head- Wockhardt Hospitals, Nagpur. “It is our responsibility to be able to contribute in the well being of our patients even after their discharge”, he added.
