Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Inaugurates Rehab Centre at Sakra World Hospital

BANGALORE, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Venerable Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living organization, inaugurated the integrated rehabilitation centre at Sakra World Hospital and also addressed the gathering about the 'live well, work healthy' approach. Mr. Toshimasa Yashima, Managing Director, Sakra World Hospital was also present at the inaugural ceremony.


Speaking on the occasion, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said, "Patients become better through the environment around them. Sakra is creating such an atmosphere favourable for patients' speedy recovery. Japan is known for its hospitality, keen work, and precision. India is known for its human values, encompassion and kindness. Sakra blends both to give the best hospitality. Doctors once they relax and meditate during their breaks improve their efficiency."

The rehab centre at Sakra is one-of-its-kind and is spread across a 6000 sqft. area. It offers comprehensive therapeutic programs comprising physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and physiological counselling for faster surgical outcomes and patient recuperation for all age groups. The healing garden at the centre is a unique feature which has palliative and soothing effects on the patients.

"Rehabilitation is an important aspect for the complete recovery of patients who undergo surgery. It also plays a significant role in the effective treatment and management of several medical conditions. We make sure that our patients get excellent rehabilitative services so that they can resume their routine life as early as possible," said Mr. Yashima.

The centre is equipped with a highly specialized paramedical team which is accountable at all times. It caters not only to the hospitalized patients, but also to those who do not require hospitalization, yet need rehabilitation to aid in their recovery, such as post-stroke and paralytic patients, disabled children, obese individuals etc. The hospital also provides home-care services and extends its specialized care even to patients who have been discharged.
