Sanjivan Hospital made a modest beginning with a small dispensary
in 1954. Later Dr.R.A.Kalle, F.R.C.S. with the help of Social
Welfare Board and State Government established an eight-beded
hospital in 1955. Now the hospital has 12 beds for inpatients
and an outpatient block. Presently the hospital has two
doctors -a) a General Physician and b) a Lady doctor. The
hospital is located near the village Sarai Mohana and provides
medical services free of cost to a combined population of
about one lakh of Sarai Mohana, Kotwan, Rajapur, Kapildhara
villages. These villages are situated in the range of 0.5-4.0
kms from the Centre.
On an average 200 patients are treated as outpatients daily.
The number is increasing as there are no Govt. /Private
hospitals within 7 km radius of the Sanjivan Hospital. The
communities are treated for Tuberculosis, asthma, heart
diseases, ENT problems, skin diseases, gynecological problems,
etc. The children are vaccinated up to the age of 5 years.
The hospital treats tuberculosis under DOTS programme supported
by WHO. The hospital provides round the clock emergency
services. Emergency cases needing intensive care are referred
to Govt. hospitals in the city.
The hospital believes in "an ounce of prevention is
worth pound of cure". The hospital focuses educating
the rural masses on preventive measures. On every Tuesday
and Thursday, special clinics are organized for vaccination
of children up to age of five. The mothers are made aware
of importance of hygiene, sanitation and nutrition. It is
not sufficient to reduce the risk factors substantially.
In the newly constructed waiting hall, documentaries on
health education are being screened on television. The hospital
is planning to engage trained health workers to spread this
awareness in the villages.
The hospital needs a Family welfare unit to bring in awareness
about the benefits of having small family units. It is very
crucial to have Maternity and Child welfare unit.
The hospital is equipped with pathological laboratory,
X-ray unit, dispensary and an ambulance.
The hospital has been renovated for providing better facilities.
Separate rooms for treating outpatients. A big waiting hall
been added to facilitate the patients to rest before their
turn comes to see the doctor. These facilities are crucial
to provide better health care facilities to the needy and
disadvantaged communities of these villages.

medicines worth Rs.20,000 to the hospital.
