New Zealand and India partnership delivers success for patients

New Zealand High Commissioner to India, Joanna Kempkers today acknowledged the successful partnership between Surya Hospitals and New Zealand health technology company, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare.


An engraved crystal memento was given to Dr B S Avasthi, Managing Director of Surya Hospitals and TP Bastin, the India Country Manager for Fisher & Paykel, during a tour of Surya Hospital in Mumbai.


Surya’s expertise in neonatal and paediatric care, combined with advanced medical technology from New Zealand company Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, has allowed the two companies to focus on new approaches to achieve faster healing and recovery.


“It is my pleasure to be here today to celebrate a strong New Zealand – India business partnership. India is very important to New Zealand, being our largest services trading partner, and a leading and growing source of skilled migrants, international students and tourists. Today’s acknowledgement of the Surya and Fisher & Paykel Healthcare partnership is just one of many strong business relationships between Indian and New Zealand companies, ” says Ms Kempkers.


Dr Avasthi says he is pleased with the work Surya Hospitals and Fisher & Paykel Healthcare have achieved in the nearly 25 years they have been working together.


“Fisher & Paykel was a natural partner for Surya due to its world-class technology and experience in working in international markets. We’re proud of the work we’re achieving together and technology from Fisher & Paykel has enabled us to make a real difference in the lives of our patients,” says Dr Avasthi.


Fisher & Paykel began its foray into healthcare technology in the 1960s and has since expanded to be a leading designer, manufacturer and seller of medical device products and systems for use in respiratory care, acute care and the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea.


“India has a growing demand for smart healthcare solutions and New Zealand is in a good position to meet this demand with expertise across the continuum of care from hospitals and community clinics to telemedicine and home care,” says TP Bastin.


Fisher & Paykel Healthcare has a fully owned subsidiary in Bangalore.
