Pandit Deen dayal Upadhyaya Hospital
Before 2004, the only for boys, Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Government Senior Secondary School, Rathkhana, Gangori Bazaar, Jaipur was functioning on the land, measuring 5968.56 square meters, over which Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya Hospital, Jaipur has been constructed.
A brief history of this school is :
1949 Upper primary school
1954 Middle school
1972 Secondary school
1994 Senior secondary school with all subjects
2004 Shifted to the present premises
The total area of the Nazul land with Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) was about 6000 square meters which was being used for motor garage purposes by JMC. Out of this, 3016.41 square meters was given to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Government Senior Secondary School (Department of Education) by JMC free of cost vide letter No. F/HMZ(W)/GA/JMC/04/3434 dated 13.12.2004 from the office of the JMC, Jaipur. This was as a result of GAD order No. F1(50)/GA/04 dated 03.12.2004 from the office of Deputy Secretary, GAD (Assets) to JMC.
After giving almost half of its land to the said school, still, about 3000 square meters of land is with JMC. The motor garage of JMC has already been shifted to Mansarovar and Lal Kothi.
Construction of shifted school building (3000 square feet) was done through funds provided by Hon’ble MP Late Shri Girdhari Lal Bhargava amounting to Rs. twenty lacs.
Constructed on a total area of about 6000 square meters, the first stone of the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya (PDDU) Hospital was laid in September 2006. This building of over 1.12 lac square feet comprises a basement, ground level and three stories. Inaugurated on September 14, 2008, the lokarpan (Hindi term for official start) was complete on October 8, 2008. Built at an expense of INR 1358 lakhs, the hospital has more than made up for the cost through its great service to the community. Affiliated with the SMS Medical College, this 300-bedded hospital formed a Rajasthan Medicare Relief Society in July 2010. Thereafter, a tertiary care level hospital emerged in the buzz of the walled city of Jaipur.
Undergoing considerable expansion year on year, PDDU Hospital is now a fully functional hospital with specializations in Medicine, Surgery, Gynecology, Pediatrics, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Anesthesia, Radio-Diagnosis and a Blood Bank. In recent reports, the statistics of the hospital have started speaking for themselves and the high quality of service provided to the area. For instance, the cumulative maternal mortality rate stands at 90 and neonatal mortality rate is 15 at this hospital. These figures are one of the lowest in the state of Rajasthan and even better than MDG 2015 recommendations.
Now complete with ten modern operation theatres and eighteen-bedded labor room, this hospital registers over 7,000 surgeries and 7,000 births annually. Also, the neonatal ICU is under expansion, going from 14 to 35 beds. To date, every microbiological study on the premise on a monthly basis has been given a ‘sterile’ rating, standing testimony to the cleanliness and hygiene of the hospital.
Aside from medical procedures, PDDU hospital also has the capacity to undertake teaching and training programmes and other academic activities. The lecture theatre, equipped with air-conditioning and approximately hundred seats, provides suitable environment for students to learn. The medical record room is doing a commendable job for its accurate functioning.
Another remarkable achievement of the PDDU hospital is being the first of its kind in the State to successfully operate the generic drug store. The concept, extrapolated by the state government, is now smoothly implemented across the state under the name of Mukhyamantri Nishulk Dava Yojna (MNDY). This scheme has benefitted over 7 crore people in the State to provide drugs and medicines. The PDDU Hospital was a proud recipient of a cash award from the government for its proactive implementation of the MNDY scheme with great gusto and enthusiasm.
In strides towards a brighter future, the hospital is now adopting an innovative model of public-private partnership to run clinical laboratory. This idea has been conceptualized and is getting implemented at the hospital. The march is towards establishing a clinical laboratory wherein all tests are done so that the population need not send their samples outside the state.
Not one to rest on its laurels, the hospital, through its effective management, will continue to shine and make a difference to its people and the state, at large.
Situated in the thick of Jaipur city, it provides specialist medical care expected by public from the SMS Medical College, Jaipur. It shares the patient load of SMS Hospital, Zenana Hospital and Mahila Chikitsalaya, Jaipur.
