Revolutionizing Stroke Care: NIMS Takes the Lead in Rajasthan and becomes the first comprehensive stroke management center as per World Stroke organisation & NABH

Today marks a significant leap in the healthcare sector in India as NIMS University and Siemens Healthineers have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the establishment of a ground-breaking Stroke Centre at NIMS University. This Centre will be the first such accredited comprehensive stroke management centre in India to comply with the guidelines set by the World Stroke organization & NABH.

This key collaboration between NIMS and Siemens Healthineers aims to create a comprehensive stroke care ecosystem that will extend its services to primary healthcare centres within a 50-kilometre radius. This move is set to enhance access to advanced stroke care for a wider population, potentially improving and saving countless lives.

The MOU signing ceremony was graced by Prof. Balvir Singh Tomar, Chairman and Chancellor of NIMS University, and Prof. Sanjiv Sharma, Pro Chancellor of NIMS University, along with senior representatives from Siemens Healthineers and NIMS University. The MOU focuses on several key areas of collaboration including among others.

  • Establishing a Hub and Spoke Model with NIMS Hospital serving as the Hub and the Spokes extending to NIMS Heart and Brain Hospital in Jaipur and NIMS Alwar Hospital in Alwar.
  • Implementing Awareness Programs for the stroke at both mass and Primary Health Care (PHC) level so that people can identify stroke early.
  • Training on protocols and treatment options for staff at PHCs and NIMS University.
  • Creating Defined Clinical Stroke Pathways by mapping PHCs within 50 kms from NIMS hospital.

In his address, Prof. Tomar highlighted the urgency and necessity for a state-of-the-art stroke care ecosystem. He stressed the importance of timely intervention in the ‘golden hour’ – the critical few hours after stroke, which often determine the extent of recovery of a patient. “Our partnership with Siemens Healthineers is aimed at capitalizing on this golden hour, providing patients with rapid response and expert care,” said Prof. Tomar.

Prof. Sanjiv Sharma shed light on the robust infrastructure available at the Stroke Centre in the NIMS university affiliated centres. “The Centres are equipped with advanced state of the art interventional radiology suites, complete with neurology and neurosurgery backup as well as 384 slice dual source CT a first of its kind in the Rajasthan and MRI equipment. Alongside our experienced faculty trained at AIIMS, New Delhi and PGIMER Chandigarh, we will provide evidence-based treatments ensuring that our patients have access to world-class stroke care,” said Prof. Sharma.

This initiative represents a significant stride in India’s healthcare landscape, with Siemens Healthineers’ global expertise in medical technology ensuring that the Stroke Centre will be at the forefront of stroke care.

Today’s signing of the MOU brings hope for many at risk or living with stroke-related health issues and reiterates NIMS University’s commitment to enhancing healthcare services in the region.
