About the Hospital

Shushrusha HospitalAround the period of 1965-70s the state of Maharashtra was undergoing sea change in its development under the able leadership of the then Chief Minister, Shri YB Chavan who initiated the cooperative movement in a big way. Taking advantage of this movement and to benefit the masses, the hospital was conceptualized and planned by Late Dr Vasant Shripad Ranadive under the auspices of Shushrusha Citizen’s Cooperative Hospital Society, Dadar (W). The hospital was founded in 1966, having been registered in 1964, under The Maharashtra Cooperative Societies Act, 1960, and under Maharashtra Nursing Homes Registration Act, 1949. The completed building was inaugurated by the then prime minister of India, Mrs Indira Gandhi, in 1969. Originally it started with 2 floors. Dr Ranadive passed away in 1971. Shortly thereafter it entered a phase of slackening of patient flow when Dr Nandu S Laud, MS (Ortho), took the responsibility of rejuvenating it and developed it to the present level in a gradual and phased manner as the funds flowed in with his efforts of fund raising and expansion of member base. Since then the hospital had not looked back.

Hospital Day is celebrated on 20th of May.
