INTRODUCTION

Vision: A plaguing concern in rural India is providing affordable health care solutions in remote areas. The rural population located in the Valsad district of South Gujarat ranks amongst the poorest in the state, grappling with issues like poverty, malnutrition, illiteracy and the lack of awareness of health related issues. These factors lead to premature deliveries, physical and mental disabilities, vulnerability to diseases and illnesses, non-adherence to basic hygiene standards and other problems.

Shrimad Rajchandra hospital is a charitable, multi-speciality hospital located in Dharampur that offers a wide range of services and uses high quality medical technology rarely seen in rural hospitals. We are one of the best-equipped hospitals in the area, and the Government of Gujarat has designated us as a First Referral Unit (FRU) in Valsad district. We strive to provide comprehensive medical services of high quality at rates that are subsidized and affordable or free for the underprivileged. We do this in a holistic manner which incorporates everything from health awareness, preventative care, ensuring safe motherhood, a neonatal ICU to cater to complications during childbirth, an early intervention centre to prevent any physical or mental disability among children due to complications at birth. In addition, we have a child-friendly centre to treat cases of physical or mental disability. Lastly, we reach out to those who cannot reach us through our outreach model of mobile medical care and camps.

Safeguarding the health of mothers, new-borns and children is our primary focus, as the health of these groups affects the health of the community as a whole. In addition to treating patients within the hospital, we organise medical screening camps in remote villages, in which our doctors examine thousands of patients.

CASE STUDIES

SHRIMAD RAJCHANDRA VIKLANG CENTRE

Payal steps into her brand new life

 

 Payal, an eight-year-old girl from Valsad, had a birth defect that prevented her from standing or walking on her own. Her parents worried about her. Who would care for her in their absence? They brought her to a Paediatric Orthopaedic Camp conducted by SRH, where an orthopaedic surgeon examined her and referred her for surgery. Payal underwent two operations at SRH and extensive physiotherapy and supportive treatment at the Viklang Centre, all free of cost. Now Payal is less dependent on her parents. She travels to school in an auto rickshaw, just like the other kids.

TESTIMONIALS

“The Gujarat Government is indebted to SRH for improving the Human Development Index of the State”

- Doctor N.B. Dholakia,

Additional Director – Health and Family Welfare, Government of Gujarat

“In the immensely inaccessible areas of Dharampur, Kaprada and Dang, the underprivileged are being offered healthcare services not only through Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital, but even through its outreach services. For this, the Gujarat Government is indebted to them. For improving the Human Development Index of the State, by providing these types of healthcare services to people from the remotest of areas, I am thankful to Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital.”
