Ruby Hall Clinic’s ICU Unit completes 25 years

Hospital to launch a book and film 


PUNE : One of Pune’s first multi-disciplinary critical care units, Ruby Hall Clinic’s ICU marks a significant milestone this year with the completion of twenty-five years. Memorialising this very occasion, the medical facility is all set to launch a commemorative book and film based on the events during this journey.

On  3rd June, the book will be officially unveiled in the presence of Chief Guest Padma Bhushan Dr. Farokh.E.Udwadia, the Father of Intensive Care in India and Guest of Honour Shri Rahul Bajaj, Chairman - Bajaj Auto Ltd.

What started as a four-bedded critical care unit in the hospital has now grown into 162 bedded critical care multi-speciality unit with state-of-the-art technology and a formidable team of doctors, nurses and intensivists. With the onus of treating over twelve hundred patients a year, Ruby Hall Clinic’s ICU is indeed one of the most sought after in the city.

Dr Prachee Sathe, Director ICU, Ruby Hall Clinic has been instrumental in the setting up and growth of the ICU. In fact, she recently received her FRCP from the Royal College of Physicians, London. She says, “Much has changed since those early days when the first patients were welcomed through our doors. But our physicians, staff and volunteers would tell you what continues to matter the most after all these years is providing exceptional care. Being among those at the frontier of critical care and helping to develop both the best practices and the service and collaboration models has been gratifying.”

Dr. Sanjay Pathare, Director - Medical Services, Ruby Hall Clinic adds, “These last few years have seen a drastic improvement in the kind of treatment options available as well as patient care for those who are in need of critical care. Day in an day out, we see life hanging in the balance at the ICU. The growth of our service, the privilege of curing an innumerable number of patients and the increasing acceptance of our ICU as the new standard of critical care, as recognised by our achievement of this milestone, validates the vision of our early years.”

Bomi Bhote, CEO, Ruby Hall Clinic adds, “The community has changed greatly over twenty-five years, as has the hospital, but the one thing that has stayed constant is the dedication and compassion of our medical staff members entrusted with making patients’ hospital stays as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Dr. Prachee Sathe and her team have been a constant source of motivation, they’re the reason the ICU stands where it is today. True to our name, the ‘Ruby’ has only grown bigger with time and casts its gleam of health on the community it serves.”
