OCHRI delinks from Ramtek Yogiraj Hospital

SLD to sign in Sree Satya Saibaba Trust

6 yrs back, considering the inability of economically backward rural population of central India to avail state of the art medical facilities due to inadequate infrastructure, Shree Laxminarayan Deosthan(SLD) had conceived the idea of establishing charitable hospital providing quality healthcare to rural population of the region on “No Loss No Profit” basis. A modern multi-speciality “Yogiraj Swami Sitaramdasji Maharaj Hospital & Research Center”; had thus come up in religious town of Ramtek. Trustees of SLD had then approached many trusts and hospitals to manage and run the establishment on no profit no loss basis. Subsequently, they approached Shri.Udaybhaskar Nair, Chairman, NAIRSONS Group for help as they were not getting assistance from any quarters. Unlike many other private hospitals; Orange City Hospital and Research Institute(OCHRI) is known to have invested its profits back to the society by various means which gave recognition of OCHRI as a unique social trendsetter in field of health care. Looking into the varied social commitments undertaken by OCHRI, Shree Laxminarayan Deosthan unanimously had joined hands with OCHRI for their Ramtek project. The Trustees of Shree Laxminarayan Deosthan and Directors of Ravi Nair Hospitals Private Limited (RNHPL) had thus inked a memorandum of understanding handing over the management of hospital to OCHRI on 3rd March 2012 initially for 10 years further extendable to another 10 years. OCHRI which is known as a healthcare leader in central India thus started providing ethical quality health services at this facility. During this period of 5 years, they even reached to remote villages adjoining Ramtek, Mouda, Devalapar, Parseoni and its vicinities. They conducted many free diagnostic and cataract, ENT and general surgical camps for the poor people.

Recently, Shree Laxminarayan Devasthan requested OCHRI for premature termination of the MOU in view of their forthcoming association with Shree Satya Sai Baba Trust. SLD had desired that free super specialty health care should be delivered to needy poor populace and the forthcoming new association will deliver the said facilities since Shree Satya Sai Baba Trust possess superlative infrastructure and financial backing to realise their goals. Accordingly, OCHRI will withdraw and stop managing Yogiraj Hospital, Ramtek from 3rd August 2017. Hereinafter, entire control regarding running and management of this hospital will be done by Shree Laxminarayan Devasthan with backing of Shree Satya Sai Baba Trust Samiti w.e.f 4th August 2017. This hospital will commence its operations very soon with new name.

On this occasion, Shri. Deepak Chhabra of Laxminarayan Deosthan expressed his gratitude to OCHRI led by Shri.Udaybhaskar Nair for serving the needy and making this hospital self-reliant within 5 years.

Shri. Udaybhaskar Nair, Chairman- Nairsons Group of Companies said that his team had tried to provide feasible ethical healthcare facilities to incoming masses at Yogiraj Hospital. However, it was difficult to provide free health care services since they had to run it on no profit no loss basis. “Even though OCHRI had to bear loss of Rs.50-60 lacs to sustain the recurring expenditure till date, I am happy that the missionary commitment of SLD to render free super speciality health care to incoming poor needy Ramtek populace will be now fulfilled by Shree Satya Saibaba trust.” He added.

Dr. Usha Nair, Director- RNHPL conveyed that Yogiraj Hospital at Ramtek had got very good response from the people of Ramtek and we will remain grateful and indebted for the love and affection showered on TEAM OCHRI by Ramtek residents during their 5year stint at Yogiraj Hospital.

Dr. Deepak Dongre, Nodal Officer I/c of Ramtek Yogiraj Hospital thanked all statutory authorities led by Shri.Sachin Kurve, Collector, Dr. Umesh Nawade, Civil Surgeon, Smt.Abha Kolhe, Joint Charity Commissioner, Shri. Ram Joshi, SDO- Ramtek and Shri.Jumma Pyarewale, CEO- Ramtek Nagar Parishad for their support, backing and guidance to run and manage Yogiraj Hospital.

Dr. Anup Marar, Director- OCHRI, Dr. Vidya Nair, Director- RNHPL, Shri. Narayandas Agrawal, Shri. Kailash Agrawal, Shri. Vipul Chhabda from SLD were prominently present during this delinking ceremony.
