The Sunrise Heart Foundation has launched a new initiative to provide quality health care free of cost for the needy heart patients.

The Sunrise Heart Foundation has launched a social outreach programme, ‘Sunrise Heart Beats’, aiming to provide support for patients who require heart surgeries and cannot afford it. The project is based on the motto ‘Save a Heart, Save a Family’. The Foundation said it hopes to reach least 100 patients in 2014.

The project is supported by the Lions Club and other charity organisations and individuals. “The average cost of a heart operation is around `1.5 lakh. We aim to reduce the bearing on the patient’s side for such an operation by bringing down the patient’s contribution to `50,000,” said Hafeez Rahman, chairman, Sunrise Hospitals.

The medical eligibility of the applicants will be decided by a medical team of the hospital headed by John E V and the general eligibility will be decided by medical director of Sunrise Hospital R Padmakumar.
