If you thought a career abroad implies walking the tight rope between the call of duty and concern for elders back home, it is time to relax. You no longer have to live in constant fear dreading the call that tells you a beloved elder or parent is unwell, or has fractured a bone. Or suffer the subsequent sense of hopelessness and frustration at not being able to be there in person to provide the necessary care.
You can now depend on HOPE (Healthcare for Overseas Parents & Elders) initiated by MEDICA Superspecialty Hospital, Kolkata, the largest hospital of its kind in eastern India, conceived and built by doctors of proven repute and international education and exposure, offering specialty treatment and state of the art support services.

Touched by HOPE
Myself and my parents would unequivocally say that the HOPE program has been a huge blessing for our family. The year 2014-2015 has been especially difficult for my father, who had to be hospitalized 3 times for different reasons. However, each time my father reached Medica, we had a sense of relief that he was getting the best possible medical care. Over and above the care, the HOPE program ensures that my parents never feel uncomfortable whenever they need any help. The care and love provided to them as HOPE patients is beyond compare. The HOPE agents try their best to keep us informed of my parents’ health. Because of the time zone difference, I have contacted them during weekends and very odd hours and each time they have been extremely courteous and did their best to follow up on every request. Another advantage of the HOPE program is that it is completely cash free for my parents. They are released as soon as they have received their adequate care. The bill is sent to us, which we can clear at our convenience. The cost of treatment is very reasonable. I would definitely recommend HOPE for NRIs whose parents are in and around Kolkata. The peace of mind I earned by registering my parents for HOPE qualifies as the best $200 I have ever spent. Mr. M. Ghosh
HOPE scheme was extremely helpful for me and my elderly parents. I am delighted to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the team. I would like to thank the HOPE Relationship Managers for their wonderful service, professionalism and communication.Dr. S.M. Pal
I have had a fabulous experience with HOPE. The person assigned has now become almost like a family friend and the care she takes of my parents is nothing short of what any relative present would take. They make the entire process hassle free.Mr. N. Bhattacharya
I wanted to take a moment to thank your HOPE team members for their dedication and support, especially the HOPE relationship manger. She is an asset to Medica and its clients. She has been always there to help me out, no matter whether it is a Sunday, early morning hours, coming out of a conference and went above and beyond to help my parents get through their medical needs. The HOPE team is very dear to my heart.Mr. P. Ghosh
I am impressed by the comprehensive tests that you have done on my father and am very grateful for making his visits to the hospital a good experience. He praises you and the service at every opportunity!Dr. A. Mitra
We are HOPE members at Medica Superspecialty Hospital, enrolled by our NRI son who lives in the US. We have been enjoying the privileges of the HOPE membership for the last 4 years and we have been very happy so far. Not only are the staff members extremely helpful, courteous, and considerate, the facility itself boasts of outstanding doctors, latest medical equipment, and ultra-clean rooms. The greatest advantage is that help is only a phone call away, and that has been a life saver for us on multiple occasions where hospitalization was needed. Not only is the wait period negligible for HOPE members even on regular visits, the bills are always settled in the most convenient way and only after the services are rendered. The friendly staff members also call us at regular intervals to inquire about our health. We hope you find HOPE as useful and helpful as we do.
Mrs. & Mr. Dutta
