 Wadia Dismisses Rumors of Shutting Down Hospital

Ness Wadia has dismissed all rumors that the 80-year-old Bai Jerbai Wadia Children's Hospital, Parel, Mumbai, is set to close down. The trust that has been hit by finance and infrastructure problems had been shut down a year ago and the staff from the children's hospital had been shifted to the maternity hospital. The civic body (BMC) and the Wadia family are joint trustees of the children's hospital.
A four member committee has been set up by the state government authorities to look into various issues, including employee's funds and dues government agencies owe to the trust. The committee has been given 45days to submit the report.

A meeting was called at the Mantralaya to discuss and resolve the problems of the hospital and to suggest measures for improvement of services. Following the meeting with health minister Suresh Shetty, Ness Wadia said, ''There are rumors that I am winding up business to settle down abroad. I am an Indian. I will die here in motherland. Healthcare services in India are very poor and need a lot of improvement. The Wadia Trust will continue to work in Mumbai and improve the quality of health services." Wadia also said that the government agencies make enormous delay in releasing funds which makes it difficult to run the hospitals.

Additional Chief Secretary of Health,  J.K.Banthia; secretary of Health Department, Bhushan Gagrani; representatives of Wadia Hospital Bachao Kriti Samiti and MNS MLA Bala Nandgaonkar were also present at the meeting.
