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.
