New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki’s commitment to community welfare reaches a significant milestone as the Zydus Sitapur Hospital, supported by the company’s CSR initiatives, commemorates one year of delivering advanced cardiac care to nearly 400 villages in 12 talukas of Gujarat like Becharaji, Mandal, Mehsana, Patan, Viramgam and nearby regions.
The state-of-the-art Cath Lab was introduced in April 2023 and established with an investment of Rs. 5.6 crore, stands as a beacon of hope for the region, providing essential healthcare services and ensuring last-mile access to critical treatments.
Rahul Bharti, Executive Officer – Corporate Affairs at Maruti Suzuki India Limited, expressed pride in the company’s investment in the Zydus Sitapur Hospital, “Built with the motivation to make tertiary healthcare accessible to the community around our plant, the company has invested overall Rs 160 crore towards setting up Zydus Sitapur, a multi-specialty 110-bedded hospital.
It is an interesting example of how a corporate can make a positive intervention in a hitherto uninhabited place and make it a congenial place for community and employees. Aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 3 that focuses on good health and promotes well-being of people, the launch of the Cath lab underlines our commitment to support local  healthcare infrastructure with last-mile access to cardiac treatment in the region.”
Bharti added, “Our efforts have also helped us serve 240 heart patients belonging to low-income groups under the prestigious Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana.” 
The Zydus Sitapur Hospital inaugurated in 2021 as the region’s first multi-specialty healthcare facility, has significantly transformed healthcare accessibility in the area. Managed by the Ramanbhai Foundation, an arm of the Zydus Group, the hospital has served over 15 lakh individuals from nearby villages, eliminating the need for extensive travel to access quality medical care.
Staffed by skilled medical personnel and furnished with state-of-the-art equipment, the hospital provides an array of advanced medical services, including General Medicine, Orthopedics, Trauma, Gynaecology, Urology, Nephrology, and Dialysis. Recognized for its excellence in healthcare provision, the hospital holds accreditation from NABH and recently received the prestigious gold quality certification from the Quality Council of India (QCI).
