Access to quality and affordable health care services is a challenge in Becharaji and surrounding villages, especially as rising industrial and economic activity in the region causes a rapid increase in population. Maruti Suzuki India Limited, which has undertaken CSR projects in water, sanitation, infrastructure development and school education in its 26 adopted villages in Haryana and Gujarat, has identified quality health care at affordable prices as a major need in the area. To serve this need, the Company has partnered with Zydus Hospitals, a leading provider of healthcare services, to set up a modern Polyclinic at Becharaji, Gujarat.
Equipped with advanced health care diagnostic equipment, amenities like X-Ray, TMT machine, Minor OT, ECG, Pathology Laboratory, Ultrasound, fully equipped ambulance, pharmacy etc., the facility with 3 OPD units and 3 observation beds, will provide primary health care services and diagnosis. Qualified doctors and support staff from Zydus Hospitals will visit the facility. The facility will be in easy access for over 10,000 residents of Becharaji village and adjoining communities of Hansalpur, Shankhalpur, Adiwada, Sitapur etc.
Under this CSR initiative, Maruti Suzuki will invest over Rs. 3.3 crore to set up and fully equip this facility. With services being offered at subsidized rates, the Company will bear the costs of maintaining and operating this facility.
