Dr Naresh Trehan feels proud to say that the roots of his success are in Lucknow. A 1968 pass-out from King George's Medical University, Dr Trehan said, "I am returning to Lucknow what it gave me."

In a year's time Medanta Awadh would get a out-patient department. "The Empire State Building was made in 11 months; a strong will can achieve any target," Trehan told. He added that they aimed at starting in-patient services in 18 months' time as well. He also indicated that satellite centers of Medanta are likely to come up in other parts of UP if the Lucknow model takes off well.
