A healthy society is a strong and vibrant society. It has ambitious plans for future and means to translate them into reality. On the contrary, a society high in number of unhealthy and physically weak people cannot live up to modern day challenges where mere living cannot be the sole objective of life. Unfortunately, India faces daunting challenges on the health front which is affecting our march to be a successful, industrialized and powerful nation. Sewajyoti believes that governments alone cannot wipe out diseases and unhealthy living conditions prevailing in many parts of the country. These social problems need every citizen’s collective involvement and support to be done away with. More importantly, social service organizations, charity bodies, trusts, volunteers, religious organisations and other good souls must come together to get India rid of age old menace of diseases and a lack of hygiene.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Sewajyoti agrees with the observation and our activities in the field of health, medicine and well-being are articulated keeping this in mind.
Until recently, Nawalgarh presented a disappointing picture as far as treatment of serious diseases was concerned. The city had no hospital that was equipped with modern technology, machines and expertise to deal with the modern day maladies. People inflicted with heart disease, cancer and other serious problems had no other option but to go to Jaipur and other cities wasting lots of money, time and effort. Realising this, Sewajyoti decided to build a large hospital with modern health facilities and expert doctors to bring relief to the people of Nawalgarh and its adjoining areas. The 30 bed hospital, named Radheshyam Morarka Medical Institute was inaugurated in December 2006. Since then, it has provided high quality medical facilities to lakhs of people in the area. Rising demand necessitated expansion of facilities which resulted in new cottage wards being built in the subsequent years.
A cure-all institute in rural habitat
Radheshyam Morarka Medical Institute has facilities to treat heart disease, cancer, asthma, bone diseases, child diseases and women’s ailments. It has in-patient and out-patient consultation services, hospitalization facility and emergency services. Surgeries are also performed by expert in-house surgeons. The hospital has also tried to reach out to patients living in villages and hamlets by organizing extensive health consultation, treatment and surgery camps. These camps, attended by high number of people, are bringing about a gradual change on the health map of the area.
Many political and social personalities have visited the hospital and were impressed with the facilities available here. They included the former Vice President of India, Late Sh. Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, Minister of State for Health, Rajasthan, Dr. Rajkumar Sharma and former Speaker of Rajasthan Assembly, Ms. Sumitra Singh.
Radheshyam Morarka Medical Institute has given special attention to disease which are seen 'differently' in the society due to lack of awareness. It has a centre to attend HIV Aids patients and a separate centre for treatment of tuberculosis. We believe that society needs to be informed about different aspects of such diseases so that the patients concentrate on the healing process rather than fighting the social taboos unnecessarily linked to their conditions.
The hospital also conducts health camps in its premises. In such camps, experienced doctors from Mumbai and Jaipur have provided their valuable services to local people. Without such arrangements, such specialized services are generally out of ordinary citizens' reach, especially in the rural areas.
