Jodhpur (Rajasthan) [India], September 15 (ANI/NewsVoir): To commemorate the 20th foundation day of India's leading ed-tech firm Utkarsh classes, the CEO and Co-founder, Dr Nirmal Gehlot inaugurated the new cardiac thoracic wing of Mathuradas Mathur hospital in Jodhpur. The refurbished wing has operation theatres, and outpatient wards and will offer world-class cardiac health facilities to the poorer sections of society.

Talking on the occasion, Dr Nirmal Gehlot said, "Heart diseases have been a major health concern in India. The treatment is expensive and often unaffordable to the poorer sections of society. This initiative attempts at bridging the gap and ensuring that everyone has access to world-class healthcare in the cardiac space."

According to the study on the burden of disease, India had 272 cardiovascular deaths for every 100,000 people, which is much higher than the global average of 235.Utkarsh Classes is a pioneer in the industry founded by Dr Nirmal Gehlot in 2002.
