Prime Minister Narendra Modi will virtually inaugurate a 250-bed multi-speciality hospital, built at a cost of Rs 200 crore, at the tribal-dominated Dharampur taluka in Valsad district Thursday. The Shrimad Rajchandra Multispecialty Hospital that has come up on eight acres of land was started as a 40-bed facility by Shrimad Rajchandra Ashram 18 years ago.

The ashram trustees decided to expand the facility, to cater to patients from interior villages. The groundbreaking ceremony for the multi-speciality hospital was held in November 2017 and the work was completed by 2022.

“Our aim is to give the best treatment to the people… We have tie-ups with a group of Indian-origin physicians based abroad who will visit our centres… In Dharampur people have to travel 45 kilometres to Vapi or 30 km to Valsad for medical treatment,” an ashram source said.

Patients from interior villages are picked up and taken to hospital from where they are dropped back after treatment. The tribal-dominated Dharampur taluka has 108 villages with a population of around 2.45 lakh.
