Cloudnine Group of Hospitals Become India’s First Hospital Chain to be Accepted to the Vermont Oxford Network

BENGALURU, August 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —

Elevating neonatal healthcare standards in the country

In 2007, Cloudnine was conceived as a gold-standard woman and child hospital. Its inception was guided by a service philosophy that sought to welcome women at every age and stage of life, right from menarche to menopause. In particular, Cloudnine was the genesis of revolutionary birthing in India, far removed from the contaminated and disease-ridden environments of traditional hospitals in the country. Armed with the credo ‘pregnancy is wellness, not an illness’, it strove to reimagine birthing, by creating a bouquet of much-needed affordable maternity and neonatal services for the Indian landscape. Cloudnine aims to provide quality maternity care in an endeavour to match maternal and neonatal survival rates with international standards.

Cloudnine has added another distinguishing feather to its cap by becoming India’s first member of the prestigious Vermont Oxford Network (VON), a coveted consortium of healthcare professionals representing neonatal intensive care around the world. VON operates with a singular endeavour to elevate the global neonatal landscape by capturing critical information on very low birth weight infants and infants meeting other eligibility requirements. It is propelled by a mission to ‘improve the quality and safety of medical care for newborn infants and their families through a coordinated programme of research, education, and quality improvement projects’. As India’s first accepted member, Cloudnine will help to augment VON’s exhaustive database, in turn enabling data analysis and independent benchmarking to promote quality improvement of member centres. Additionally, with its cutting-edge NICUs, technology-oriented protocols and superior, streamlined neonatal care practices, the VON membership will help Cloudnine compare its NICU outcomes with many of the world’s best NICUs. Cloudnine will serve as an icon of the changing face of neonatal healthcare in India.

With over 60,000 births across 20 facilities in 7 cities including Bengaluru, Chennai, Gurugram, Pune, Mumbai, Chandigarh, and Noida, and a 500+ bed strength supported by a 3300+ strong workforce, Cloudnine has carved a considerable foothold in the Indian healthcare realm.

Today, Cloudnine’s world-class services envelop a broad spectrum of medical specialities, including maternity, gynaecology, paediatrics, neonatology, fertility, and stem cell banking. Cloudnine’s ethos is imprinted with the belief that womanhood is beautiful, and that each phase deserves to shine and be celebrated. To that end, a personal, special relationship is fostered with every guest that chooses to start their journey at Cloudnine. To know more, call 1860-500-9999 or visit
