Outpatient Services at Kasturba Hospital, Manipal Temporarily Suspended
Manipal: As a precautionary measure to contain and prevent the spread of CoronaVirus (COVID – 19), the Management of Kasturba Hospital, Manipal OPD services will not be functional from 21st July 2020, Tuesday to 26th July 2020, Sunday.
In a press release, the Medical Superintendent has stated that the OPD Services will resume from 27th July 2020, Monday as before. This is mainly due to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Udupi District. We have also noticed that many of our healthcare workers have been affected in the last few days. The closure of OPD will help us to sanitize the entire Hospital. We are also in the process of creating 200 beds for COVID patients at the Kasturba Hospital, Manipal.
However, to continue to provide consultation service and follow-up support to patients, the Management has introduced consultation via Video Consultation Services. Under this service, people can contact their doctors by sitting in their homes. The doctors will give teleconsultation or video call consultation and medical advice through the phone.
People can contact our specialist doctors of all the departments from Monday to Friday between 9.00 am to 4.00 pm by calling PH: 080 47192235. Trauma and Emergency services will be functional as usual 24X7.
