Roy National awardee), a pioneer of Interventional Cardiology in India, founded Metro Group of Hospitals. The first hospital, Metro Hospitals & Heart Institute (MHHI) was set up at Noida in June 1997. Immediately after foraying into the heart care segment, the multi-specialty wing was started in September 1998, followed by establishing Metro Center for Liver & Digestive Diseases and Metro Center for Respiratory Diseases at multi-specialty wing MHHI. MHHI was followed by Metro Heart Institutes at Meerut (U.P), Faridabad (Haryana), Lajpat Nagar, Patel Nagar and Preet Vihar at Delhi and Metro Hospital & Research Centre at Vadodara.Since 1997, we have helped to enhance the lives of thousands of people who have chosen us for quality healthcare services.We have developed the concept of 'Metro Coronary Screening' whereby an angiography can be done with the use of minimal dye from the arc. The procedure reduces the cost of an angiography. This procedure takes only 5 minutes and the individual can go back to home/work in less than an hour's time. Technological advancements aside, we continue to be a leader in the industry for the personal approach we take with every patient. Our professional team provides exceptional service and employs the highest standards of patient care. Many hospitals across the country refer their most difficult cases to Metro Hospitals which is a true testimony to the skill and knowledge of Chairman of the Group Dr. Purshotam Lal and his professional team.
