SummaryThe KEM Hospital in Pune, India, is the largest NGO hospital in the Pune District of Maharashtra State.
KEM Hospital aims to treat its community across the board, from those who pay for nursing home residence to the poorest of members who cannot afford treatment they need.
Key program components
Run by the KEM Hospital Society, the hospital is a 550-bed, tertiary-level teaching institution, serving not only the people of the city itself, but also a large populace coming from the surrounding urban and rural areas.
The KEM also runs a secondary level Rural Hospital at Vadu, which serves a rural population of about 68,000 people through a network of primary health centers. All the major clinical departments like Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pathology and Radiology, are recognized for the Pune University MD and MS degrees and for the National Board DNB.
In 1969, with a generous donation from the A.H. Wadia Trust, the Hospital built the A.H. Wadia Nursing Home to house private patients and to increase its earning capacity. This project compliments philanthropy and Government grants to allow the KEM to uphold its social mission to treat the poorest of the poor.
In 2002, work started on the new Dr. Banoo Coyaji Building. This is the core of an ambitious Master Plan, which aims to streamline and rationalize the whole campus, and to take care of the needs of the next quarter century, during which period KEM Hospital will also complete one hundred years of service to its patients and the city.
