PM Modi to launch Patidar trust hospital in Surat
Updated: 17th of April 2017
This 550-bed non-profit multi super specialty hospital which has been built at a
cost of around Rs 500 crore by Samast Patidar Arogya Trust will offer its services
to people from all sections and communities.
It is expected that from commonest to richest segment people of Surat, South and
Central Gujarat areas, shifting to Mumbai or Ahmedabad for further treatment will
be a matter of past with opening of Kiran hospital which has also an air ambulance
facility atop the building with linked operation theater to deal with emergency
cases. City’s diamond barons have played key role in construction of this hospital.
Most donation for this non-profit hospital project has come from diamond businessmen
who are originally from Saurashtra region but settled in Surat. According to them,
the project is conceived with an idea to give something back to the city which gave
shelter, food and employment to those who migrated here from Saurashtra.
