Adani To Help Dentist-friend Establish Rs 700 Crore Hospital

AHMEDABAD: The Adani group will establish a medical college and hospital of national repute worth Rs 700 crore with a special objective of helping the poor. Making the announcement, group chairman Gautam Adani said on Sunday that the unique facility will come up at Adani's Shantigram township.

The hospital-cum-college will be run by Adani Foundation and is the brainchild of Malay Mahadevia, Adani group director and a trained dentist, who was also a semi-finalist from Gujarat in TOI's Lead India initiative in 2007.

Making the announcement, Adani said, "I was a school dropout who went on to build a port with a dentist friend Malay, the only 50-plus person in the entire Adani group. After helping build the largest port business in the country, he must realize his own dream of doing something for the common man."

The hospital will work on a model of providing the latest medical treatment to both who can afford to pay and those who can't. The rich will have to pay for the services, which in turn will subsidize the treatment of the poor.

The hospital will also have a modular design which can be easily replicated elsewhere in the state. The various hospitals will be linked in such a manner that their services can be used to provide the best services in a philanthropic manner. The group is also hoping to attract the best talent among medical professionals with a self-sustaining financial model for the college-cum-hospital.

"This will be a unique healthcare facility, unlike charitable or corporate hospitals. We will protect interests of patients, doctors and all stake-holders. It will have a right blend of philanthropy which will eventually grow on its own," Mahadevia said.
