Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital


KDA Hospital has many features that set it apart from other hospitals in India and the world.  First, there is the sheer size of such a hospital.  With 14 floors and 30 elevators, one might think that getting lost would be the norm.  However due to a unique Patient Traffic system, anyone can find their way easily.  Each department is assigned a color.  These colors are placed in strips on all of the floors along with signs in both Hindi and English to direct patients and visitors to the proper area.  It is as simple as, “Follow the yellow brick road.”

KDA Hospital is also the only hospital in Mumbai with a Full Time Specialist System.  This means that every physician works full time for KDA Hospital and does not consult at any other facility.  Currently, there are 103 full-time specialists who are present in the hospital to assist patients without any divided attention. 

As they are always seeking new ways to improve and new services to offer, KDA Hospital launched a comprehensive center of excellence for liver transplant.  This program consists of transplant surgeons, hepatologists, anaesthetists, intensivists, radiologists, haematologists, blood bank specialists, transplant coordinators, and operation theatre and intensive care unit nurses.  It offers liver consultations, living donor transplant, and deceased (cadaver) liver transplants.  In addition, they are equipped to handle transplants due to chronic or acute liver failure caused by a variety of factors.  After transplant surgery, patients are shifted to a separate Multiorgan Transplant Intensive Care Unit which is specifically designed to minimize the risk of infection by controlled airflow and other aseptic measures.  This is the first dedicated liver program of its kind in Mumbai and all of Western India.
