Masina Hospital, one of Mumbai's oldest charitable health institutions, has signed an agreement with Chennai-based Apollo to set up an all-new 300-bed hospital. The new hospital, which will be cobranded Masina-Apollo, will be built on 4-acre of land available within the sprawling Masina campus in Byculla. The existing hospital, which is run out of a heritage structure, once home to businessman and philanthropist David Sassoon, will stay untouched and is likely to be modernized with hefty royalties received from the new setup.

Masina-Apollo will be a super-specialty facility with a dedicated transplant center, state-of-the-art trauma care set-up, and centers for robotic surgery and neurosciences. Other specialties will include diabetes and obesity, bariatric surgery, pediatric heart surgeries, pediatric urology, and cardiovascular and thoracic surgery.
