The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) inaugurated the facility on Sunday 7 March, touted as the country’s biggest kidney dialysis hospital.

Established in the gurudwara complex, the Guru Harkishan Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Kidney Dialysis Hospital has no cash or billing counter, this is to ensure free treatment to the patients admitted there.

In addition to the treatment, the patients along with the attendants will be provided free food during the course of the treatment. The food will be supplied from the gurudwara’s ‘langar’, hospital authorities informed.
