Welcare Hospital


While it’s pretty common for heritage buildings or other architectural marvels to become a landmark in any city, it’s not often that a hospital becomes a talking point. But that’s exactly what the city-based Welcare Hospital has managed to achieve, thanks to the visionary leadership of its director Dr. Bharat Mody, who is also the chief joint replacement surgeon of the hospital.

In fact, this multi super-specialty hospital at Atladara is so well-planned that it has got hospital planners from different corners of the globe queuing up to take a look. Recently, the VP of Valiance, a well-known USA based chain which is looking at getting into the healthcare segment in India, visited the hospital to get an idea and their team was thrilled with what they saw! In fact, they were heard saying that Welcare Hospital has set new benchmarks in hospital planning in India.

Usually, when one chooses a hospital, only some clichéd factors like hygiene, behaviour of staff, word-of-mouth-publicity and cost are taken into account by the patients/their relatives. However, a visit to Welcare makes you realize that there is so much more that we should consider while evaluating hospitals. Started in 1999, its humble beginnings have now given way to a majestic, well-designed structure spread over four acres with the best of facilities, which will remind you of the kind of healthcare services you get to watch in Hollywood blockbusters. Dr. Bharat Mody is a trusted name in hip and knee-joint surgery (MCh from England, Fellowship from Harvard University and president of Indian Arthroplasty Association, 2014-15), who was invited to the Vibrant Gujarat Summit in 2009. This hospital is an important pillar from the point of view of medical tourism too. It was chosen as one of the signatory project for the Vibrant Summit by the Gujarat CM Narendra Modi’s team.
