Veerayatan Diagnostic Center, Mandvi, Kutch, Gujarat
Kutch is the second largest district in the country but due to slow economic development and lack of basic infrastructure, the availability of modern medical facilities and services is very limited. The old seaport of Mandvi (southwest of Bhuj), the port of Mundra (south of Bhuj, east of Mandvi) and Abdasa Taluka northwest of Mandvi) are all costal districts with a combined population of more than 300,000 in this somewhat dense area on the Gulf of Kachchh. The Abdasa ni Panchtirthi (Five Jain Temples of Abdasa) are located one in each of the five towns in the Taluka Administrative District. Many in the area are in greatly reduced circumstances This necessitates that medical centers with diagnostic testing facilities are needed to eliminate transportation of patients for even a minor medical need.
A Veerayatan Diagnostic Center located at the small AIMS Hospital in Mandvi makes such services available. Using the Veerayatan equipment, the hospital medical staff provides the diagnostic tests and the assessment report at a reduced rate. Patients can then arrange to receive appropriate treatment.
The Veerayatan Diagnostic Center provides endoscopy and dialysis machines, a CT scan, X-ray facilities and dental care for a very minimal charge. As a result, a large section of the population benefits from this service to improve health care.
