About DIABETES & METABOLIC CENTRE

SWASTHIK MEDICAL CENTRE is a Multispecialty Nursing Home established in 1992 at C-164, Anand Vihar, Delhi - 110092 and registered with the directorate of health services N.C.T of Delhi.

Swasthik Medical Centre has come a long way over the past few decades. Journey started when Dr. Ashwani Malhotra and Dr. (Mrs) Gurbeen Malhotra started one of the very first family medicine clinics in Anand Vihar, Delhi. They started with just a room where they had most of the facilities to cater to needs of people of all age groups and even used to give medications to patients at the time of consultation from their in-house pharmacy. They always treat their patients with a lot of compassion and respect. They grew and prospered as a family and as medical professionals in Anand Vihar. They have always been there for their patients not just as doctors but also as friends, guide and advisor.

Whether it is someone who has been discharged from the hospital, someone who is acutely sick or is recuperating from surgery, they have always gone out of their way to help people. Over the past few decades, now that they have established Swasthik Medical Centre, they are still carrying on the same tradition of taking care of their patients and not just “treating” them. They have got an excellent team of very experienced, knowledgeable and hard working team of specialists to further help the patients when they need specialist treatment.

They are real people, who have had their own struggles and that has stimulated them to formally start the new initiative “Chiraayu - Home Health Care”. They have a team of well-trained staff including Physicians, nurses, health care assistants to help patients recover and get treatment at home if they are home bound or are recuperating from any illness, surgery, undergoing cancer treatments etc. A post hospital discharge care plan is coordinated with their primary doctor and treatment given to the patients as per their guidance in the comfort of their home. At Swasthik Medical Centre, aim is to provide the care that you need, the way that you need and wherever you need.…………..

The other initiative is establishing a dedicated department for comprehensive Diabetes and Weight Management. India is the “Diabetes Capital of the World” and is number 3 in the world when it comes to number of overweight and obese people in the country. These problems are there in each and every family now and with changing lifestyle, no one is immune to them. There is a lot that can be done to prevent these problems and there are a lot of myths and misconceptions about their management in people’s mind. That has led to the development of Swasthik Diabetes & Metabolic Centre where patients are seen by an internationally trained team of Diabetologist, Obesity Medicine Specialist, Dietician, Diabetes Educator and Exercise Physiologist.

The most special thing about the Centre is special emphasis on increasing patient education and understanding about these two conditions that are inter-related. “Meri Sehat, Mere Haath” is the special Diabetes Self Management Education program that is being run at the Centre on a regular basis for patients. This is a FIRST OF ITS KIND PROGRAM IN INDIA. These types of educational programs are common in USA and UK but no one has tried to incorporate this as a part of treatment for patients in India. These educational programs have been shown to help patients control their blood sugar better, avoid complications of diabetes and decrease depression and distress related to diabetes.

Following the mantra, 'Prevention is better than Cure'. We have an in house dietetics team which along with Diabetes and Metabolic Centre, ensures an optimal diet of every individual leading to optimal health.

Along with this, the team at Swasthik specializes in Subacute rehabilitation of patients. Swasthik provides a comforting and positive environment for patients undergoing pre and post operative treatment. With our therapeutic gym, diabetes and dietetics team, physiotherapy team and advanced equipment, we provide the comfort of Home with a little extra care for patients undergoing pre and post operative treatment in orthopedics, cardiac, respiratory, oncology and wound care.

A new initiative which Dr. Ashwani and Dr. Gurbeen Malhotra have started provides assisted living and day care facilities for the elderly loved ones. Swasthik provides a positive, home like environment for Senior Citizens as you can now schedule a short-term stay for your loved one, whether they are relatively self-sufficient or require round-the-clock care. The team at Swasthik can help in improving the lifestyle of the elderly which results in positive changes in the individual. It may be controlling diet for health reasons, physiotherapy for mobility or pain or any other medical supervision required.

Since every caregiver also needs a break from time-to-time. We ensure the care and support you provide to your loved one is continued even with you taking a break.
