NEW DELHI: Setting new example of service to humanity, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) today opened India’s largest and hi-tech Kidney Dialysis Hospital at Gurdwara Bala Sahib here with all kinds of facilities free of cost for patients irrespective of their religion, caste, race, creed and colour.
Operation of this unique hospital started today with its formal inauguration held in presence of prominent religious, social and political personalities. As treatment of Kidney patients is very expensive, this hospital will greatly be helpful for them.
A unit of the Guru Harikshan Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, the hospital will have no cash counter. There will just be a registration counter for the patients from whom no money will be taken, said Manjinder Singh Sirsa, President of the DSGMC.
He said the patients will be facilitated with beds and electric chairs. Total 50 beds and 50 electric chairs will be there. This has been done for comfort of the patients. During dialysis, if a patient feels boredom or discomfort on the bed, then he can also choose to sit on the chair.

He added, “There will be no discrimination against any patient coming to be treated. Dialysis of a patient lasts for about 3-4 hours, in such a situation, people will be able to get treatment on 100 beds alternately”.
In case any patients need any other facility related to the kidney ailment, they can get completely free treatment at the Guru Harkrishan Institute of Medical Sciences.
People seeking this facility will be able to get online registration by visiting official website of the DSGMC.
