• SETTING UP OF A MODERN CASUALTY CENTRE AT SOMAIYA HOSPITAL
While every human receives medical care in an emergency from somewhere or the other, the quality of emergency medical care provided to the financially weak segment leaves much to be desired considering the fact that even the upper class hospitals of Mumbai city do not all truly have appropriate Casualty centres and response capabilities.

Even a mini OT has been built into the Casualty Centre for any emergencies.
