Kamla Nehru Memorial Hospital: Which Way Forward?
Based on a Indian School of Business case study by Dr. Naga Lakshmi Damaraju, Prafulla Rawal, Bavneet Singh, Himanshu Jain and Magesh Karthik
“The hospital operates primarily in the areas of Obstretrics and Gynaecology (O&G) and Oncology with several other supporting departments. It is a very reputed hospital in Uttar Pradesh, a very largely populated state in India and draws people from nearby states, primarily from the eastern part of India where infrastructure is largely underdeveloped, and other developing countries like Nepal, Bhutan, to name a few.”
