Columbia Asia's philosophy of building and managing a hospital is quite different from the rest.
The group's uniqueness lies in building and nurturing mid-size hospitals in residential areas. This makes Columbia Asia hospitals different from other corporate hospitals in terms of their easy accesibility and efficiency and the way they reach out to the local communities. The better efficiency also helps in keeping the costs low. The group believes in offering best quality to its patients using modern technology and highly trained medical and paramedical staff.
Columbia Asia hospitals are 100-150 bedded, two-three storeyed buildings for smoother patient flow. They use the latest medical technologies to decrease the levels of invasive treatments and optimize the efficiency in patient care, resulting in a shorter length of stay.
Another unique feature about the hospital is the "people". Columbia Asia is very careful in choosing the people the group hires to serve its patients. Highly skilled medical personnel, caring and comitted nurses, compassionate support staff willing to go out of the way to help patients, make the staff of Columbia Asia hospitals.
