NEW DELHI: Tension broke out at the Escorts Heart Institute and Research Centre (EHRIC) on Saturday morning with angry relatives of patients protesting the management’s decision to prevent renowned cardiologist Naresh Trehan from entering the hospital premises.Trehan, who on Friday dubbed as nonsense the announcement by Fortis Healthcare that he has left the company, was stopped at the gates by the security guards.When contacted, Trehan said it was the relatives and family members of the patients who came out in support of him and wanted him to perform surgeries.”My job is to take care of patients. It was the relatives of those patients on whom serious surgeries had to be done who got worried. Since early morning they have been calling up at my home”, he said.Later, after making his way into the hospital premises, Trehan said: “I’m going for an operation now”.Fortis Healthcare on Friday announced that Naresh Trehan has relinquished office as executive director of EHIRC to pursue his medicity project in Gurgaon (Haryana).He (Trehan) now leaves EHIRC to concentrate on his (medicity) venture. Trehan, who owns a 10% stake in EHIRC, reacted angrily to the news, claiming that he had not resigned and that Fortis management had not spoken to him before making any such announcement, a claim that was disputed by Fortis officials. “What nonsense, I am not going to quit, I have my patients to take care of,” Trehan said.
