Gram Seva is dedicated to health and rural development. The village communities in South Gujarat face problems in health, sanitation, education and livelihood. The organization tries to conduct and implement its activities with a comprehensive and holistic approach to cater to these problems. The need of the community is always considered before starting any activities. The organization tries to reach to the poorest of the poor. The organization also aims to complement the government health and development activities and not duplicate them.
The hospital was started in Kharel in 1994 to provide rational medical care at affordable rates to the community with the motto that no one should be denied medical care for lack of money. The hospital has expanded from 30 beds in 1994 to 100 beds at present. It is a secondary level rural hospital with all basic facilities and modern equipments. All basic facilities are provided under a single roof. It caters to the population of surrounding 300 villages of Gandevi, Chikhli, Navsari, Vansda, Mahuva and Dang blocks. More than 60% of the population in these villages is tribal, marginal farmers or landless labourers. 80% of patients coming to the hospital are from this marginal population. Daily OPD is of about 150-200 patients. And bed occupancy rate around 80 to 90%. Every year about 70,000 patients are treated in OPD and 7000 are hospitalized.
