Ayurvihar Medical Complex
The Ayurvihar Medical Complex is proposed to be a multidisciplinary institution housing various disciplines of medicine (allopathy, ayurveda, homeopathy, naturopathy). The basic infrastructure of the Complex has been worked out. It will have a 1000 bed inpatient and outpatient Charitable Hospital, Private Nursing Home with Critical Care Centre, a dedicated Operation Theatre Centre, Medical College, and a Diagnostic and Research Centre, all equipped with state-of-the-art technology and equipment.
Currently, the Complex has a 700 bed inpatient hospital, the K.J. Somaiya Hospital and Research Centre. Proposed as open wards and semi-private rooms, the Inpatient department is located in an existing seven storey structure which is linked with a central spine to all other buildings of the Hospital as well as K.J. Somaiya Medical College. The Outpatient department, designed to cater to 2,500 to 3,000 patients per day, has a dedicated wing for upto 21 departments.
The 150 bed Critical Care Centre houses 60 ICU and ICCU beds, 50 step down beds in five storeys, and 40 deluxe rooms and suites on two upper storeys. It is closely linked with the Operation Theatre Centre, a dedicated building with 32 operation theatres on four floors of eight operation theatres per floor.
A separate Emergency, Trauma and Day Care Centre is located in proximity to vehicular access. It is designed with self-sufficient critical care and operation theatre facilities for 60 patients and is directly connected with the Critical Care and Operation Theatre Centres.
Radiology, Pathology, Blood bank, Eye bank and other common facilities are located centrally to cater to every department of the Complex.
The Medical College, with nineteen departments and an intake of 100 students per annum, is an independent institution that is affiliated to the Inpatient and Outpatient department of the Hospital. Students are in direct contact with the Hospital, an independent Library and Museum building, and a separate Auditorium block with 3 auditoria whose capacities vary from 150 to 400 persons.
The Residential Medical Officers and Staff Housing will be located on the 8th to 10th floors of the Medical College building and the Outpatient department, which places it in close proximity to the Hospital and Medical College.
An independent Diagonostic and Research Centre for the Hospital is planned for the future. This Diagonostic and Research Centre is designed to accomodate state of the art technology and equipment to be shared by all the departments of the Complex. Another part of the future plan comprises of a 1600 person capacity Auditiorium and Conference Centre with a 400 room, 3 star Hotel as a part of one structure.
Together, these form the Ayurvihar Medical Complex with over 240,000 square meters of proposed built up, self-sufficient space for most kinds of undergraduate medical education, medical care and hospitality.
