Delhi Hospitals On Standby For President Bush

US President George W. Bush's visit has two of the super-specialty hospitals in Delhi on standby in case he seeks or requires medical treatment. The two hospitals are - Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and Indraprastha Apollo Hospital.

"US officials inspected our facilities, found our services were to their satisfaction and issued a letter designating us as the standby hospital for the US president and other dignitaries," said S.K. Sama, chairman of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.

"We have reserved two rooms for this purpose," Sama, who also officiates as the hospital's medical director, told IANS.

Apollo officials said after a similar inspection, the US Embassy and the Secret Service had told them to standby for any emergency.

"Our ambulance will follow Bush's cavalcade in Delhi. A team of doctors from our hospital and US health services will be inside it to meet any health requirements," said an Apollo spokesman.

"Two rooms have been checked, reserved and sealed. We hope the president's visit will be completed without any problem, but in case of any emergency we are ready to tackle it."

Officials at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital said it was the official medical facility for the US embassy. "Whenever dignitaries come from the US, we make special arrangements for them," a hospital spokesman said.
