The year 1974 marked the inception of Lokmanya Hospitals. With its humble beginnings as a 10 bedded hospital, this was a small medical unit manned by two full time specialists, Dr. V.G.Vaidya, General Surgeon, Dr. S.M.K. Hussainy, General Physician, and 2 associate doctors providing quality medical care to the residents of Pimpri and Chinchwad area, who otherwise travelled all the way to Pune for any medical aid.
Today, in its 30th year, Lokmanya Hospitals have covered new ground and has an impressive track record of timely medical care, accurate diagnostic services, progress and constant upgrading of facilities. The result is a state-of-the-art, centrally located medical centre, offering a large range of services to a wide spectrum of people in search of health care.
Lokmanya Hospitals have evolved into an almost new identity. This is owing to a process of constant updation that has resulted in the total transformation of Lokmanya Hospitals from a small hospital to a force to be reckoned with. A valuable tie-up with an international hospital chain in Sweden has facilitated the training of its core and nursing staff in round the clock medical care particularly in ICU, CCU and Trauma Care. Lokmanya’s tie-up with Intercity Consultants Hyderabad has infused new life into the everyday workings of the hospital with their rich experience in management of Quality Diagnostics and In-Patient care. In fact it has been with the guidance of Intercity Consultants that the project has unfolded from concept to completion. And there have been other changes as well an expert team of interior designers has given both the facade and interiors a new look, thereby enhancing the infrastructure.
Lokmanya now holds no traces of its simple past. In fact, Lokmanya Hospitals have undergone a metamorphosis into International Standard Cardiac Care Centre (Lokmanya Heart Institute) under the guidance of Dr. V. G. Vaidya, Managing Trustee and Dr. M. S. Hiremath, Director Cardiac Centre with facilities of Hi – tech Cardiac Cath Lab (Philips Integris 5000), Facilities for Angio – graphy, Angio – plasty, Open – heart Surgery, Advanced arterial grafting, Octopus off pump Surgeries, Aortic balloon pump required for Cardiogenic Shock, Cardiac Stress tread mill and all Pathological and diagnostic tests.
