Dr Pankaj Solanki, who has worked as a surgeon in government hospitals in Delhi, says he is 'fed up' with the governmental healthcare system.

To provide affordable healthcare to patients in the rural swathe of North-West Delhi, particularly the area bordering Rohini, the former President of the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA)-India, Dr Pankaj Solanki, has started his own 50-bedded hospital in Rohini’s sector 22.

The hospital has been created in the memory of Dr Solanki’s father, Dharamveer Solanki. The hospital will provide round the clock emergency. It will also provide OPD services in areas such as dermatology, gynecology, orthopedics, medicine, pediatrics and surgery. The hospital will have all diagnostic facilities.

Healthcare services will be provided at affordable rates at the Dharamveer Solanki hospital.

Dr Solanki says that there are two reasons for starting the hospital. Firstly, the people living in North West Delhi's villages cannot afford the expensive services in corporate hospitals. They have to depend on government hospitals which are far away from their homes. At Dharamveer Hospital, they will get treatment at basic rates. Dr Solanki hails from this area.

Dr Solanki says that secondly, he is 'fed up' with the governmental healthcare system where he had provided his services as a surgeon.

Sector 22 of Rohini is attached with a clutch of 30 villages of North-West Delhi and several resettlement colonies. People living in these villages and nearby colonies have a hard time for getting treatment as the area lacks hospitals that provide treatment at affordable rates. The area also lacks public transport facility due to which people are not able to reach government health facilities.
