Director – Medical Services Message
Dr. S. S. Singh
Salute to the Rotary club & Rotarians of Vapi, which embarked on a mission to provide modern health care facility to the people of Vapi, the fruits of which we all are enjoying today. The motto was to start a hospital not for profits but for patients. A small beginning, 45 years back with a small dispensary being set up in ‘C’ type quarters of GIDC Housing area by Rotary Charitable Trust. The dispensary soon grew within 5 years into a 24 bedded Niramaya Rotary hospital in 1982. Later the renowned Haria group joined hands with RCT & Haria L.G. Rotary Hospital took shape.
During the last 45 years the hospital’s fame and excellence has spread far and wide, and is considered as one of the best well equipped & well-maintained hospitals between Surat and Mumbai. Apart from the general population of Vapi & surrounding areas, the hospital also caters to needs of other areas like Daman, Silvassa, Sarigam, Umbergaon, Pardi, Valsad, Dharampur and Dahanu. With the addition of patients from faraway places like Dahanu, Palghar and now even from abroad are routinely taking advantage of the hospital services.
Our policy of not refusing any patient rich or poor, with or without attendant or may be in the last gasping stage, have saved many lives, especially the Highway accidents and trauma cases. Accident patients are brought by the police and volunteers from faraway places like Manor & Charoti which are almost 100 km away, confident of the fact that the patients will be taken care promptly by the best possible experts. The hospital today has about 250 beds. Apart from the general wards, the hospital also has Special, Semi Deluxe, Deluxe and Suite Rooms to cater the needs of all classes of society. The hospital which started with the services of General Practitioners, now boasts of a team of 60 full time doctors, and more than 80 visiting specialists. The Cardiac Cathlab which is functional since last 20 years has already performed more than 12000 procedures including angiographies, angioplasties, valvuloplasties, renal & peripheral angiographies and permanent pacing’s. The cardiology department has saved many lives by performing primary angioplasties even at the mid of the night.
Complementing the cardiology department is our latest fully equipped CVTS department and pediatric heart surgery department. Now we are able to handle all varieties of bypass surgery, valve replacement as well as congenital heart surgeries with great confidence.
The latest developed Cancer Care Center is really doing great work with the team of 4 Cancer Surgeons, Medical oncologist, Hemato oncologist & Ortho Onco-surgeries. Soon we are going to have our own latest high end Radiation unit with PET Scan facilities also.
The Dialysis Centre which has now 10 dialysis machines, perform dialysis totally free of cost to all patients. One of the dialysis machines has been now installed in the ICU, where very critical patients on ventilator and multiple lifesaving supports can be dialyzed at the bed side. We have one of best and latest CT – Scan as well as MRI machines in the area.
To upgrade the needs of super specialized surgeries the hospital already has a State-of-the-Art Operation Theater complex, with laminar air flow and latest imported equipment’s. Specialized surgeries like laparoscopy, ERCP, Neurosurgery, Spine surgery & Joint replacement surgeries are now routinely done here.
The new ICU, NICU & PICU has capacity to handle 60 patients and is fitted with 30 ventilators, central monitors, blood gas analyzers, pacemakers, incubators, and phototherapy & has central oxygen and suction facilities and is monitored by the highly trained Intensivists, Doctors and Nurses round the clock.
The Blood Component Separation Unit with single donor platelet machine & the Infertility Centre are the latest feather in the cap of our hospital.
The two Ambulances, of which one is Cardiac Care Ambulance fitted with all the latest ICCU equipment’s, including ventilators, pacemaker, and defibrillator had till now saved hundreds of precious lives by safely shifting them to higher center’s in case of emergencies & bring is serious patient from other hospitals.
The latest blood mobile van functional since last one year is helping as collecting blood at various places & has been of great help specially during the Covid pandemics.
The hospital has always been associated with the implementation of Govt. projects like Chiranjeevi Yojana, Blindness Control Programme, AIDS Control Programme, Mukhyamantri Amrutum Yojana (MA Yojana), Ayushman Bharat Yojana, Dang Health Card Project and Pulse Polio Programme.
The hospital is considered as the pilgrimage for the Rotarians around the world and so far, thousands of Rotarians, including more than a dozen Rotary International Presidents have visited the hospital to know, see and believe what a Rotary Club can do.
