Inaugurated in 2000, the Shri Pramukh Swami Maharaj Hospital, operated by the BAPCT, is located in the town of Dabhoi in southeastern Gujarat. This regional hospital serves as a primary healthcare center for the surrounding villages, including many under served tribal and rural areas. The hospital focuses on serving underprivileged patients without the means or access to quality healthcare. As a result, the hospital has modern surgical facilities and theaters and includes the following facilities:
* 62 In-patient Beds
* 21 Departments (Internal Medicine, Orthopedics, General Surgery, Gynecology & Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Dentistry, Physiotherapy and Ophthalmology, etc.)
* 10 Staff Doctors and many more consulting and visiting physicians and experts
* Intensive Care Unite and Neonatal Intensive Care Units
Annually, the hospital treats average of 60,000 patients on out-patient basis and around 4,000 patients on an in-patient basis who are treated for various treatments. Moreover, with two well equipped operation theaters, the hospital provides for 1500 to 1800 operations in an year.
A key component of the hospital’s work is addressing the issue of high fetal and neonatal mortality rates in the rural and tribal areas the hospital serves. These high rates are due to lack of safe facilities. As a result, the hospital actively encourages women to deliver in professional environment under supervision of specialist to minimize loss of life. The hospital also participates in government programs and schemes to provide subsidized or free care to the underprivileged.
However, given the fact that ours is a charitable organization providing low-cost care to all, donations and support from well-wishers are the critical factor in enabling our work. With this support, we are able to provide quality health care in these rural areas preventing costly and time-consuming travel to larger cities for care.
In the end, the Shri Pramukh Swami Maharaj Hospital is a beacon of quality health care for those without means or resources in the rural and remote areas of southeastern Gujarat.
