India’s medical infrastructure is growing, with many global healthcare centers calling Mumbai home. These centers offer patients world-class facilities and care, ranging from pathology and laboratory testing all the way to urgent follow-up advice should they require additional assistance. Many of these services are offered at the hospitals as well so that patients can quickly and easily access any labs they might need.
Hospital samples are also classified under a broad spectrum at times, including blood, urine, or stool testing – which means samples don’t have to be sent elsewhere for testing. This cuts down on time taken for tests, saves money and reduces stress for both patient and doctor! For blood tests, for example, the reports will be turned around within 24 hours, but a faster turnaround may also be an option in circumstances where more prompt handling is required. Some significant government hospitals of Mumbai are Seth GS Medical College & KEM Hospital, Kasturba Hospital for Infectious Diseases, National Institute of Virology Field Unit, and Grant Medical College & Sir JJ Hospital.
