A boon for the Grassroots- Shah Satnam Ji Speciality Hospital
World Class Tertiary care in rural setting
Those aspiring to get world class treatment, available only in developed countries, will now be able to avail state-of-the-art facilities in a natural rural landscape. Equipped with latest diagnostic facilities and treatment, the hospital inspired by Dera Sacha Sauda, Shah Satnam Ji Speciality Hospital, aims to make world class quality tertiary treatment easily affordable to the poor.
Sprawling over an area of over 1.25 lakh square feet, the building made in the shape of heart and words S, M and G, the entire exterior, interior and designing of the hospital has been done by Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan.
“The idea behind the hospital is that the richest and the poorest of the land will be able to get treatment to the best of their satisfaction in the same place. The rich will no longer have to leave the country to seek advanced treatment as state-of-the-art facilities are available here,”said Guruji.
The economically disadavantaged will be provided free treatment in the hospital. The hospital has 300 Indoor beds. Most of the machines for diagnostic or treatment purposes have been imported from Germany, Japan, Netherland and several facilities made available here have not been yet introduced even in metro cities.
Special attention has been given to the operation theatres, fully fabricated in steel, to keep them 100% bacteria free. Guruji said, “Top specialists from around the world will visit the hospital from time to time and extend their services here. Special benefits will be given to the poor. At the time of registration the patient’s economic status will be assessed and if the patient is poor, not only the diagnostics, but treatment too would be done free of cost.
” The hospital has a special feature of fragrant environment as its natural landscape and environment has been enriched specially with fragrant bushes and trees.” Specially designed ambulances, fully equipped with latest portable facilities, will be pressed into service to transport patients to the hospital,”said Guruji. The foundation of the hospital was laid on May 22, 2012 and within a year and ten months the hospital is ready to treat patients. Speaking to the staff, Guruji said,
” It is important that the entire staff, right from the paramedic to the top doctors, treats patients respectfully and lovingly. Love and affection are as potent for the patient as medicine itself. ” A patient Aj Rani, from Himachal Pradesh’s Sirmaur district, who suffered a heart attack, became the first patient to get free treatment in the hospital. Apart from social service, Dera Sacha Sauda is excel in providing facilities for health, treatment, education, sports, agriculture,environment and animal husbandry besides other fields.
The Dera has established several world records in the field of blood donation and tree plantation. With a view to provide easily affordable and quality treatment, Guruji has already established three separate hospitals, one each of allopathy, naturopathy and ayurvedic. Doctors from Shah Satnam Ji Super Speciality Hospital organise free camps at the Dera at the end of every month which have proved to be a boon for lakhs of patients who seek treatment in the camps. The hospital’s expansion has given hope to the people of the area that they will not have to travel to bigger cities for good treatment.
The hospital has been designed in such a way that the patient feels at home. Huge windows have been kept in the rooms that look out on verdant greens outside. Often, it is seen that a patient becomes psychologically weak when kept in the intensive care unit. But the ICUs at this hospital have been exclusively designed that lets the patient see the sky overhead and trees outside the window.
Advanced ICU Monitors Senior physician and ICU expert Dr Gaurav Aggarwal Insan said that the hospital is equipped with the latest equipment that will keep a watch on the patient’s heart, pulse, oxygen and temperature. Such monitors are being used in America and in India the hospital has acquired the first such monitors.

For the first time in India, Sirsa based Shah Satnam Ji Super Speciality Hospital has put in place special modular operation threatre. Dr MP Singh Insan, senior surgeon and SMO said, “The operation tables and machines in the theatre have been procured from Japan, Germany and Netherlands.”

Health minister Haryana, Rao Narender Singh, said, “It is a matter of great pride for us that the rural areas of our state have been blessed with a super speciality, tertiary care hospital. This will benefit people of not just Haryana but surrounding states as well. It is our humble request to Guruji that if more such hospitals are opened in Haryana then the government will extend its fullest help.”
Enlighting the Lives Could anyone imagine that a remote village of North Rajasthan could give birth to one of the largest eyebanks in the country. Indeed, the Shah Satnamji General Hospital at Sri Gurusarmodia has now led to two seprate eyebanks, the other being in Sirsa; that cumulatively process 2300 plus eyes every year.
What is more, the entire collection is based on the voluntary efforts of Dera Sacha Sauda. As Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan often says, “The devotees are quick to participate in every initiative, they are ever ready.” Established by Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, the current eye bank provides advanced services like full thickness corneal transplant, lamellar corneal transplant and endothelial keratoplasty.
In the new hospital, a new special German microkeratome has been installed. And the beauty is, that once the corneal is horizontally sliced the inner and outer halves can be used to help two different patients.
