New Delhi, January 31: Over 20 doctors and support staff led by senior cardio-thoracic surgeon Anil Bhan have resigned from the leading super-specialty hospital Max Devki Devi Heart and Vascular Institute in the capital.
"Yes, I have resigned from Max. There was some management issue," Bhan said Thursday.
"At least 21 members of my team, including doctors and support staff, have resigned from the hospital. I have not joined any hospital so far and things would be clear in a couple of days," he added.
Bhan resigned from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) three years back and joined the privately-run Max hospital in Saket in south Delhi.
"I started the cardio-thoracic department at Max and now am leaving. I put my papers Tuesday," the doctor said cryptically.
Among others who have resigned are Sushant Srivastva, Dinesh Mittal, A. Pandey (all cardio-thoracic surgeons) and V. Mahajan (paediatric surgeon). Srivastva too was earlier working with the AIIMS.
These doctors and support staff are likely join leading cardiologist Naresh Trehan's Medicity project, coming up in Gurgaon.
"There is a very bright chance of we joining the Medicity project. It will be functional in another seven-eight months time but we will help them come up nicely," said one of the doctors who quit Max.
Trehan last year left Ranbaxy-promoted Escorts hospital after a conflict with the management.
He along with over 20 doctors and staffs later joined Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, another tertiary care hospital in the capital.
