5 Delhi hospitals fined Rs 600 crore for not treating poor patients
The Delhi government fined five prominent private city hospitals Rs 600 crore for not treating poor patients as mandated by the law, underscoring the scanty healthcare options available to the economically weaker sections (EWS).
Fortis Escorts Heart Institute in Okhla, Max Superspeciality Hospital in Saket, Pushpawati Singhania Research Institute in south Delhi, Dharmashila Hospital and Research Centre and Shanti Mukund Hospital in east Delhi were fined.
