Pune Adventist Hospital is a privately run hospital which is operated by the Medical Trust of Seventh day Adventists. Seventh day Adventists have a chain of hospitals over the world and in India they are having presence through 14 hospitals spread across India. Pune Adventist Hospital is one of them. This hospital was established in the year 1973as a small dispensary to serve the basic medical emergencies of the Seventh day Adventist community in this area and neighbourhood. Over the years the need for the health care increased and the dispensary was converted into 8 bedded hospital by converting two bungalows in the eastern side of the Seventh day Adventists campus. The philosophy of treatment has always been a charitable philosophy. The hospital works with a motive to provide excellent medical treatment at minimum costs. It is run on the principle of no profit no gain. As a result of the popularity of the hospital the demand further increased and the hospital had to expand it further up to 42 beds. In this Salisbury Park and Gultekadi area there are 9 slum areas where in the population is about 4 lakhs. Not only the patients from economically backward class come to this hospital but also the patients from affluent class also avail of the hospital's health care services.
Different categories of patients requiring different kind of treatment (outpatient, casualty, inpatients, ICU patients) will be the beneficiaries of this grant. Last year for all these categories over 41,600 patients received the health care treatment and with the additional equipments now proposed to be installed out of the global grant there will be additional inflow of patients and we expect that over 50000 patients will stand benefited of this global grant. The equipment proposed to be installed also includes operation theatre equipment and last year the number of operation performed was: Major operations: 395, Minor 393. With the new equipments and facilities this number will also go high.
