Dear Sir,

No the amount is not taxable in your hand as the Hospital is approved by the Chief Commissioner of Income Tax and the amount is directly paid to the hospital and you did not have any personal benefit in the transaction.

It is advised to please get your Form 16 rectified by your Company in order to avoid further complications.

Trust this clarifies your query. 

Feel free to get back/ call back for any further clarifications. 

Thanking You.
