“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intentions”
- Oscar Wilde
Keeping in line with this philosophy “”few good fellows” planted seeds of kindness which has now become a full blooming tree. What started as simple “Kidney Hospital” has now become a “Kidney Institute” with academic center known all over India. B.T.S.K. is one of the few centers in the country, training super-specialists in Urology & Nephrology. Parallel growth in paramedical branches like Nursing College, DMLT, Dialysis Technician Course, O.T. Technician Course etc. has contributed significantly in patient care not only in this region but all over Gujarat. Accreditation for Kidney Transplant program is a feather in the crown. I am glad to inform that we have successfully completed six kidney transplants till date. Not only that we are runner in Cadaver Kidney transplant. I am Glad that Our Organ donation team is very active and has created huge social awareness. We have successfully done cadaver kidney transplantation.
COVID pandemic played havoc all over world. Though not our specialty, we also started 50 bedded COVID CARE CENTRE with 10 ventilators to help society during second spike. I greatly appreciate from bottom of my heart a hard work and great leadership provided by Shree Jayantibhai Faldu in the time of crisis and also hard work and dedicated services provided by each and every member of BTSK Hospital team.
We believe in providing comprehensive care under one roof and periodically upgrade our technology. In that context it is our dream to establish first center for Robotic surgery in this region at ourinstitute. As Dr. Abdul Kalam said “Great dreams for great dreamers are always transcended”. I am sure this dream will also become reality.
It is proud privilege for me to be a part of founder team and now lead this prestigious institute as a chairman. I am grateful to the members of the board of trustees, esteemed donors, fellow consultants and members of all staff.
