To provide comprehensive and personalised health care with commitment at an affordable cost to patient's satisfaction, while keeping ourselves abreast of the state-of- the -art technology.
Charutar Arogya Mandal, which has a 100-acre campus at Karamsad in Gujarat, is a trust set up in 1972 by the late Shri HM Patel, the former Union Minister for Finance and Home. It seeks to provide the best medical care to the rural community and facilities for medical education to the people of Anand and Kheda districts. Under the aegis of the Mandal, a general hospital, Shree Krishna Hospital with 136 beds was initially set up. Over the last three decades since its inception, the hospital has increased its capacity to 600 beds. The hospital receives presently over 1200 outdoor patients and has an average indoor strength of over 300. Most of these patients are from the weaker economic groups and not in a condition to afford the treatment that they need. The hospital itself, through many of its special programmes, attempts to provide its services to the economically challenged persons in a subsidized manner. As a outcome, the hospital treats over 4,00,000 patients on annual basis and admits over 35000 patients for hospitalization. Many of these patients are from weaker economic groups and not in a condition to afford the treatment that they need. To make health-care affordable, we have taken following measures: 1) Free Registration or consultation fee for outdoor consultations. 2) Free stay and diet in our general wards for BPL Patients. 3) Free treatment to women and children belong to BPL family 4) 60% waiver of treatment fee for Men from BPL families. 5) For critical care 75 % concession is provided to the BPL patients. 6) Treat all emergency cases without considerations of costs. All these measures, which benefit over 40% of the patients admitted in the hospital and many outdoor patients, impose a significant financial burden. We consider these to be a legitimate social cost and a necessary component of our work, but it makes the sustainability of the hospital extremely difficult, with the concessions amounting to over Rs.1000 Lakhs annually.

 Eye Camp at Waghasi village near the milk city Anand of Gujarat.
Waghasi village is situated near the Milk Capital of India, Anand. Despite its proximity to the urban area and best health care facilities, a certain group of community remains deprived of essential health care facilities due to multiple factors, economic constraint being one main reason. This section of society comprises mostly of field laborers who earn a meager income to support their family. The family income of such families goes primarily to meet the very basic requirements of food, clothing and shelter. Naturally, attention for the health care requirements was an unattainable goal. Shree Krishna Hospital organized a Medical Camp especially for the screening of Cataract patients after a survey done by our Medical Social Worker. The need for a specialized Eye Camp was realized and proposed by the community leaders. Pursuing this proposal a team of Ophthalmologists, Para medical staff and social workers administered a camp in Waghasi on December 18, 2008 in which 77 patients were screened for various eye problems, out of which 18 cases were enrolled for cataract surgeries. The surgery of these patients was carried on in the Operation Theatre of Shree Krishna Hospital on 19th December free of cost. The patients who were screened and then operated for Cataract Surgeries got rid of their vision problems after this camp. The non operative cases consulted in the camp by the doctors got medicines free of cost. All the beneficiaries of cataract surgeries are happy to receive unconditional modern treatment facilities at their door step.
 Ravjibhai Parmar bounces back to his normal life
Ravjibhai Parmar, 60 years a resident of village Saiyadpura from Anand District was diagnosed with Left Pyriform Fossa before six months. He resorted to our hospital after taking elaborate treatment for 6 months from local doctors as well as quacks. A farm labourer by occupation, and a contributing member to support a family of 12, Ravjibhai a chain smoker was not in a position to afford Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy for his treatment. He preferred relenting to destiny for his life with this dreaded disease rather than pursuing the expensive treatment of cancer. The patient relation department which is the public domain of the hospital was assigned the responsibility of this case. The executives assessed the socio-economic condition of the patient and persuaded him to follow the treatment promising him, that a major par to his treatment charges would be borne by the hospital and he shall have to spend a minimal token amount. Ravjibhai was ready then to take the treatment. Hospital raised funds for the treatment by contacting philanthropic agencies and local community around. Ravjibhai has been given Chemotherapy on July 8, 2008 and Radiation Therapy on June 26, 2008 and he is on a follow up treatment now. He has stopped consuming tobacco and has shifted to a healthy diet. As a result he is able to carry out his heavy work of farm laborer and contribute to family income. A very happy and spirited person Ravjibhai is a source of motivation to other cancer victims of our hospital and his community also.
 Gynec & Obstetric Department patients benefit from healthy diet
The young and malnourished mothers are mostly admitted through the Emergency Centre of our hospital. These patients are clinically difficult to manage as they arrive very late for the treatment, and since they are devoid of a proper ante natal care, the number of complications increases. Hospital provides a complete 4 course diet to these patients. The highly nutritious diet helps them recuperate fast from the complications they have faced during their deliveries. The diet department provides the patients with specialized diet as advised by the physicians of the Gynec department for such patients e.g.: protein rich diet, iron rich diet, fluid diet etc. They receive 2 meals from the hospital which their families may not be able to manage in this crucial stage. The patients are fed well, it helps them to recover fast and enable them to feed their infants properly in return. Diet is very important component of the complete treatment of the pregnant women with complications. Providing proper and timely diet to such poor patients helps them regain their health.
 Cancer Centre at Shree Krishna Hospital
cancer centre at Shree Krishna Hospital since, inception has treated over 9000 patients with radiation. These are patients with head and neck cancer, Gynaec cancers and breast cancers. Other common cancers include Lung cancers, brain tumors, cancers in children and cancer of the digestive tract.

The Centre, with access to state- of- the- art multidisciplinary cancer care at affordable or no cost and a range of experienced and compassionate experts of cancer care givers has evolved as a shelter to the needy victims of the disease. Master Sandip Rohit is 8 year old child and studying in 3rd standard, staying at Virsad Ta- Borsad. He suffered from Hodgkins Lymphoma blood cancer. His father expired eight months ago and his mother is a daily wager working as a farm labourer. Master Sandip requires Radiation and Chemotherapy for a year.

 One day free stay and free meal to one BPL patient admitted in General Ward
Shree Krishna Hospital managed by Charutar Arogya Mandal at Karamsad, receives and treat hundreds of patients every day. Many of these patients are from weaker economic groups and not in a condition to afford the treatment that they need. Anand and Kheda districts are located in the central part of Gujarat with a population base of about 50 lacs out of which more that 75 percent live in rural areas. This leads us to not charge any registration or consultation fee for outdoor consultations and medical advice for our general services. Nor do we charge for stay or diet in our general wards. We do not turn away a single emergency case. We even offer substantial discounts in our treatment cost to those living below the poverty line Hospital provides a complete four course diet to the BPL patients. The highly nutritious diet helps them recover fast from the treatment they have faced during their hospitalization. The diet department provides the BPL patients with specialized diet as advised by the physicians for such patients e.g.: protein rich diet, iron rich diet, fluid diet etc. They receive daily 2 meals from the hospital and providing 2 times tea & breakfast which their families may not be able to manage in this crucial stage The patients are fed well, it helps them to recover fast and enable them to feed their infants properly in return. Healthy diet is very important component of the complete treatment for the patient with complications. Providing proper and timely diet to such poor patients helps them regain their health. Patients appreciated the quality of meals served at free of cost while admitted to the general wards. They also expressed their gratitude to the hospital
 Kangaroo Mother Care saves life of a premature girl child
Ambala Nayak, a farm labourer earns little to support his family of six which includes his wife and daughter and a mentally challenged brother. His wife delivered a female child prematurely who miraculously survived without ventilator support for a week even with a birth weight of only 600 Gms. The father of the child was keen on saving his daughter though his extended family members advised him to cease the treatment for his daughter. But Ambalal was firm; the gender of his child did not inhibit his feelings, quite a rare scene in the society where male child preference does not need any evidence. The hospital authorities decided to treat the child free of cost considering the good prognosis the child had. The child named "Krishna" by the nurses of NICU was put on ventilator for 90 days, till she gained a weight of 2 kg and was declared normal to survive without medical supervision. The precious life of a Girl child could be saved through the generous donations received from the donors. Krishna now lives with her parents and her elder sisters at home. The father comes to the hospital for medical guidance from the doctors. He is particularly happy as he could have the opportunity to save the life of his daughter. It is worth mentioning here that the poor parents were so keen on saving their child. That the mother who could not stay back in the hospital as she had to feed her elder Daughters and take care of mentally challenged brother in law, but to compensate the Father of the child worked in the farms during the day time and returned to the Hospital in the evening and provided Kangaroo Mother Care to his daughter, which is a very essential form of treatment for low birth weight infants.
 Kokilaben Maganbhai Parmar mothers a healthy child after 19 miscarriages
Kokilaben Maganbhai Parmar a resident of Bilpad village at Anand District was married before 23 years. Pursuing the social chronology she desired to conceive and start her family. Unfortunately, due to some internal malfunctioning in her physique, she could not carry her pregnancy for long and had 17 induced abortions till date. In these years of her marriage they have spent their fortune on her treatment. Succumbing to the social and familial pressures she had 18th pregnancy where she lost her 3 day young female child. Succumbing to the familial and social pressures she went against medical advice and conceived for the 19th time, with no money to back up her ante natal care, she was referred to our hospital ill, mentally and emotionally sick. Treating Kokilaben was not easy since the medical history was very critical. The Gynecologist of our hospital put her on conservative treatment from the day she was referred to our hospital. She was admitted in the hospital twice for 77 days, till she delivered a healthy male child. The hospital waived off a part of her treatment cost considering the economic pressures they have been into in the past years. The couple is very happy after having a healthy child, especially the mother who has encountered multiple familial and social hurdles, keeps apart the health issues. She gave birth to a male child on 19/02/2008. Kokilaben is recovering steadily after taking lengthy medical care and her husband too is completely concerned about his wifes health now. Not much needs to be said about their feelings, as the happiness is apparent when the couple is seen regular for the monthly medical follow up of the wife. Our achievement is not actually in treating her clinically, but in enabling her to live a happy life with contentment.
