Fortis dismisses Dr. Trehan, files case for vandalism (Lead:Trehan)

Fortis Healthcare, which has a majority stake in the New Delhi Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre (EHRIC), today dismissed renowned cardiologist Dr. Naresh Trehan from the hospital and also filed a vandalism case against him.

New Delhi, May 19 : Fortis Healthcare, which has a majority stake in the New Delhi Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre (EHRIC), today dismissed renowned cardiologist Dr. Naresh Trehan from the hospital and also filed a vandalism case against him.

Admirers and supporters of Dr. Trehan had forced themselves into the hospital compound and forcibly opened his locked office, as the hospital management disallowed Trehan from entering the hospital premises.

Relatives of patients who are under Dr. Trehan's care along with other supporters protested against the decision of Fortis Healthcare to prevent Dr. Trehan's entry.

"He should fulfil his commitment and then go. He should satisfy the patients and their attendants," said Komal, relative of a patient.

However, the officials of Fortis Healthcare contended that Dr. Trehan had demitted his office and will not continue operations henceforth.

"Dr. Trehan demitted his office yesterday. He can come and meet his patients but he cannot operate. It has come in the press today, it's conflict of interests," said J S Puri, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Fortis Healthcare and Escorts.

Trehan, who helped to set up the Escorts Hospital in 1988, is outraged by the management's decision.

Dr. Trehan said he along with his team of doctors would continue to take care of patients.

"We are doctors. We take care of patients. I have operated yesterday on a dozen of patients. There are patients today who are waiting for surgery. There are patients who are waiting for Monday, Tuesday. There are patients from overseas, even from America. It is my responsibility and responsibility of all the doctors to take care of patients. They have no authority to ask me to leave because it is a fact that they do not own it. It's under dispute," said Dr. Naresh Trehan.

''He should not have been removed. He is a good doctor,'' said a patient, who are facing the brunt.

Fortis, on Friday, announced that Dr. Trehan had relinquished his post of Executive Director of EHRIC to pursue the Medicity project planned by him in Gurgaon.

Dr. Trehan continues to hold a 10 per cent stake in Escorts.
