Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh resumes operation after stay on licence cancellation

Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh resumed its operations on Wednesday, days after its license was cancelled by the government for declaring a newborn baby dead.

The hospital said the operation was resumed after the Court of Finance Commissioner on Tuesday put on hold the government’s December 8 order.

“We are fully focused on providing quality care to all our patients and honouring our commitment of ensuring free treatment to the economically weaker sections of the society,” a statement by Max Hospital said.

On December 8, the Delhi government cancelled the hospital’s licence after its doctors on November 30 declared a premature newborn baby dead.

The new born was found alive when his parents took the body for final rites. The baby died a week later due to infection and other medical problems.

The doctor from the Max Hospital was also suspended after the incident took place.
