The Symbiosis University Hospital and Research Centre (SUHRC) is a 300 bedded healthcare facility that is located in the Lavale campus of the Symbiosis International University (SIU), providing healthcare facilities to this underserved part of the state. The surrounding area is semi-urban with approximately 32 villages being located within a 12 kilometres radius.
Symbiosis has been providing local community services through the Symbiosis Community Outreach Programme and Extension (SCOPE)for many years now. We plan to continue and enhance these services through the hospital.
The SUHRC is a tertiary care hospital with all the basic specialities as well as select super specialities like Cardiology, Nephrology, Gastroenterology and Neurology. There will be a total of 22 ICU beds including 6 High Dependency Unit (HDU) beds and 6 dialysis beds. Our facilities include the latest MRI, CT scanner and Cathlab (angiography/ angioplasty) machines, state-of-the-art 5 operation theatres, Laboratory equipment, Blood bank and a 24 x7 Pharmacy. There are 100 general ward beds and another 650 will be added soon as part of the medical college hospital in the same campus. We hope to provide subsidised but quality care to this socioeconomic class.
The doctors will be employed on a full time basis, so as to ensure 24x 7 delivery of quality care. The 15 departments will have at least 2 consultant doctors each, an initial strength of 30 medical officers and 100 nurses. The schedule of charges is expected to be approximately 20 to 30 % lower than the corporate hospitals in Pune. All government health schemes shall be available at our hospital in the near future. All TPAs and insurance companies will be empanelled shortly as well.
In addition to patient care, there will be an emphasis on Research and enhancing related capabilities. The proximity of sister institutes like Symbiosis Institute of Technology (SIT), Symbiosis Centre for Medical Imaging Analysis (SCMIA), Symbiosis Centre for Nanoscience & Nanotechnology (SCNN), Symbiosis Centre for Stem cell Research (SCSR), Symbiosis School of Biological Sciences (SSBS) and Symbiosis School of Sports Sciences (SSSS) will facilitate this endeavour.
We hope to integrate low cost healthcare with cutting edge technology and research so as to be able to deliver the best in the healthcare domain to an underserved and impoverished population.

Symbiosis International (Deemed University), as a part of Institutional Social Responsibility, launched Symbiosis Community Outreach Program and Extension (SCOPE) activities in July 2012 and adopted 14 villages and 9 hamlets (n=23) around its campus at Lavale.
In line with the SCOPE initiative, Family Doctor Clinic at Sus village (FDC) and Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) were launched in the Mulshi block of Pune district. It is catering to 15 villages and 9 hamlets in Mulshi block and 2 construction sites in Walhekarwadi and Kalakhadak areas of Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (27 sites) covering around 30,000 populations. FDC & MMU conducts a variety of preventive, promotive and curative services for poor, mostly rural, needy and marginalized population based in access-compromised areas. Activities like outpatient services, health talks, celebration of national and international health days, etc. are conducted. SCOPE has increased networking with government and private health care sector to undertake variety of activities like monthly immunization of pregnant & lactating mothers and children, monthly antenatal care (ANC) check-ups and treatment camps, specialist camps, patient referral, support to private/government health programmes. FDC and MMU teams also conduct health awareness and research/survey related activities in collaboration with sister institutes/departments of SIU.
We firmly believe that our role as a university goes beyond imparting of knowledge and skills to our students and, as active agents of change, we are supporting initiatives related to health, nutrition, water and sanitation, banking and finance and legal literacy. This initiative has been widely accepted and appreciated by the community. We are committed to defending the ideals, responsibilities and objectives of a socially responsible academic institution. Our future plans are in line with expansion of services, connecting with corporate donors, setting up a Health & Demographic Surveillance System and promoting research in the catchment area.
