Sakal Sahyadri Suraksha Kawach
The senior citizen scheme is a unique service; because it is understood to be the first of its kind, in the whole country. The enrolled person gets much more than his payment towards the scheme which is just unbelievable.
While working on this scheme we had a dialogue with many of the senior citizen wherein they gave a feedback that they wanted these services close to their residence. In 2006 as Sahyadri Specialty Hospital, Karve road was the only hospital, providing such services it was not practically convenient for everybody to avail the services. Sahyadri has now come up with its branches in various parts of the city and the scheme is becoming Self-sustaining.
The increase in footfalls of the senior citizen and certainly because of great services offered to them, their family members also visit here. It has generated tremendous “GOOD WILL” & “TRUST”.
Sahyadri Hospitals Pvt. Ltd. started Senior citizen scheme with Pune Municipal Corporation in 2006 for two years. After that it had tie up with FESCOM for one year and for last two years Sakal Papers Ltd. is involved for this Second Innings Corner.
Today the said Senior Citizen Health Welfare Scheme is popular in society as Sakal Sahyadri Suraksha Kawach. In last 5 years more than 60000 senior citizens have taken benefit of the scheme. Under the scheme, discounted OPD benefits are also given, along with IP services. Everyday about 100 patients take benefit of these at all units of Sahyadri in Pune.
