Initially constructed in 1963 as a small local hospital serving the Borivali area in Mumbai, Bhagwati Hospital was expanded to a 50-bed secondary healthcare centre in 1968. Today, it has grown into one of the most critical public healthcare facilities in Mumbai, providing care to all western suburbs from north of Goregaon, up to Dahanu and portions of Thane. The hospital played a vital role during numerous catastrophes such as flooding of 26 July 2005, serial train bombings in July 2011 and the Borivali building collapse. The hospital attends to train accident victims, highway accidents and other natural calamities, daily. On an average, more than 200 casualty admissions in a day and roughly 1200 OPD admissions in a day.

Considering this significant responsibility, MCGM (Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai) took an initiative to upgrade this hospital into one of key peripheral hospitals in Mumbai, in 2008. The idea was to upgrade facilities such as number of beds, infrastructure for diagnostics, consulting & surgical facilities, nursing school facilities, residential facilities, dedicated area for blood bank, designated ENT ward, designated ophthalmic ward, adequate medical wards, adequate sterile recovery areas and recovery area for operating patients, holding area for casualty, and mortuary. The most difficult task has been to execute this large-scale revamp, while keeping the hospital operational.

“We are confident of transforming the hospital into a patient-friendly healthcare destination, which also ensures that the medical staff and doctors are at utmost ease with regards to all their needs and operations.”
