Samsung partners with Uttar Pradesh to provide increased healthcare support
As part of its efforts to support areas with limited access to essential healthcare services, Sasmung Smart Healthcare aims to fill a gap in the Indian healthcare market through its Smart Healthcare Program, partnering with over 10 government hospitals across India.
The initiative encompasses the provision of advanced technologies and solutions to support India’s growing demand for healthcare services and support patients who could otherwise not afford to access quality care.
Samsung India’s partnership with the Government of Uttar Pradesh will see the company add 20 new Samsung Smart Healthcare centres across the state and provide advanced and innovative healthcare equipment, such as ultrasound and digital radiology (x-ray) machines, which will be manufactured by the Company.
