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.

DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa tweeted, “No longer need to spend huge amounts of money on dialysis. The country’s most modern and largest kidney dialysis hospital, built by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, has been dedicated to humanity today”.

The hospital will soon increase its capacity to 1,000 beds from the current 101 beds. For this and operational expenditure, the committee said it will raise donations from corporate giants, individual donations and also implement government schemes, Mr Sirsa has said.

He added that the hospital is equipped with technically advanced medical facilities and will function round-the-clock.

For now, the hospital will take patients who visit in person. Online registration will be started in a week once the system is in place, the authorities added.
