Neonatal Unit at Palghar Hospital
Mother & Child care has been the thrust area for the Trust since beginning. Our hospital has been offering paediatric services since 2000.
The entire Palghar, Vikramgadh belt did not have NICU facility though it was an urgent need considering maternal malnutrition and lack of adequate antenatal care.
We inaugurated our NICU in June 2007. The NICU has 5 beds in addition to 5 beds for step down.The nearest Government run clinic or hospital for the 40,000 inhabitants we serve is about 3 to 10 miles away. With no public transport available, access to healthcare service is virtually non-existent.
Annual Project Cost – Approx $ 20,000
Number of Neonate Beneficiaries – 57 with $14,500 of subsidized care provided
2023-2024 Budget Needs for 70 babies – $21,500
