Hedgewar hospital


Hedgewar hospital

Babasaheb Ambedkar Vaidyakeeya Pratishthan established the Dr. Hedgewar Hospital in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. The Hospital was founded by young doctors inspired by the ideology of the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh), a nationalist pan-India organisation.

A modest hospital then, today, it has 150 beds and runs medical services in many specialities. The Hospital, through its human and monetary resources, also runs several social upliftment programs like AIDS awareness, upliftment of women, kindergarten schools, self-employment etc. in various slum areas of Aurangabad.

Prominent personalities like Ratan Tata, Harsha Bhogle, Anne Heiberg-Blackwill (Robert Blackwill's wife) etc have visited and lauded the work of the hospital and its staff.
