Army freezes empanelment of Fortis

In a significant development that could put hundreds of ex-servicemen patients, specially those suffering from heart ailments, in a spot, the Army authorities have put on hold the re-empanelment of Fortis Hospital while accusing it of overcharging and harassing Ex-servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS) beneficiaries.

While Fortis Hospital stopped the treatment of fresh referral cases after the expiry of the empanelment term on May 17, the Army authorities recently displayed notices at its Referral Centre at Sector 29, stating that until the issue of overcharging and harassment of beneficiaries was not resolved, the scheme would not be extended.

The notice states: No referral is being given for Fortis Institute and Multi Speciality Hospital as agreement has not been signed for the reasons - (a) overcharging ECHC; (b) charging extra money from ECHS beneficiaries; and (c) making veterans run around to get referrals during emergencies .

The Army authorities and the Fortis management refused to comment, but maintained that efforts were on to resolve the issue .

An Army spokesman said they had received several complaints from ECHS beneficiaries about the shabby treatment meted out to them. He said several complaints regarding overcharging had also been received.

However, the director of Fortis, Dr Ashish Banerjee, denied such incidents, maintaining that they were in contract with the ECHS since 2004 and since the same wasn’t renewed, they had stopped accepting new indoor patients. Another official of the hospital, on the condition of anonymity, claimed that the settlement of the outstanding payments of crores of rupees by the Army had become a bone of contention.

Claims and counterclaims notwithstanding, the impasse is going to cause suffering to patients, but the allegations of harassment are not unfounded. Readers would recall the incident where representatives of the ex-servicemen association of Chandigarh and Mohali had staged a dharna outside Fortis Hospital in May to seek the release of the body of a warrant officer.

While the ex-servicemen association and the family members of the deceased had accused the hospital of harassing them and not releasing the body, Fortis had denied the allegations and stated that the patient was not registered as member of the ECHS at the time of admission and the authorities were not ready to reimburse the expenses on his treatment.

Dr Ashish Banerji, Director, Fortis Hospital

The former CEO of Woodland Hospital, Kolkata, Dr Ashish Banerji (53), has now joined as the Director of Fortis Hospital, Mohali. According to him, he chose to join Fortis Healthcare as it is a well organised and dynamic healthcare group in India. I had visited Fortis Hospital Mohali in February 2003, while I visited Chandigarh to recruit consultants and was impressed by it, he enthuses. He is equally happy to shift base to Punjab, as he is fluent in Punjabi. As a Director in Fortis, he is in-charge of key activities at the hospital. The complete gamut of activities, both medical and non-medical, have to be supervised and different HODs have to report to me. The revenues, profit and loss, medical programmes and the like, are all a part of my job profile, he mentions.

Dr Banerji has had an interesting journey as healthcare administrator. In 1978, he started his career as flying officer at Army Hospital, Delhi. For 22 years in the army, he has traversed various parts of the country that includes Pune, Kanpur, Shillong, Barnala, Coimbatore and Delhi. I have worked as a surgeon in several armed forces hospitals, varying in size from mobile field surgical units to command hospitals. I have operated under very adverse circumstances and did a successful nephrectomy once with only torch-light illumination, he recollects.

In 2000, he retired from the Indian Air Force (IAF) and began his career as a civilian surgeon in Vrundavan Hospital, Goa. Soon, he joined as Deputy Medical Director and Consultant Surgeon at Ruby Hall Clinic (RHC), Pune. There, he was responsible for designing and implementing a system of computerised discharge summaries for all the discharged patients of the hospital, with different menus for separate disciplines of medicine and surgery.

He joined as the Medical Director of the under construction 600-bed Bombay Hospital in Indore. In 2005, he re-joined as the Medical Director of RHC. By the end of 2007, he joined Woodland Medical Centre as the CEO and Medical Director. He joined Woodland when it was going through trying times and worked hard to bring a complete makeover.

In the last eight months, there has been a sea-change in Woodland. Major repair and renovation work is now going on, without disturbing the functioning of the hospital, he proudly states. Fortis, Mohali is now looking forward for his magical touch.

I look forward to lead the organisation which is leading the Indian healthcare sector to its next stage of development, said Bhavdeep.
