Message From Chairperson
''Healthcare services must begin where people are and where problems
arise. We have acquired the capability of placing satellite in orbit, but
we have not yet been able to reach out to all our rural people''.

|Dr. Archana Patil,|
These inspiring words have left a deep impression on my mind.
They have motivated me to take up a daunting task and set up a Multispecialty
hospital with state-of-art facilities in the remote town of Udgir.
By and large social life around Udgir enjoys a good modern lifestyle. But
its suffers from one lacuna, the lack of modern medical facility. That, we
are trying to do away, with the establishment called LIFECARE. Our
project aims to be a 'Global Model Hospital' in rural healthcare sector.
Udgir town, part of Latur, the Parliamentary Constituency represented by
Shri Shivraj Patilji for 25 years. H’ble Shivraj Patilji’s inspiration and
guidance for this project will constantly remind us to work with ethics of
highest standards. This project has been conceptualized and would be
executed by me and my team of 12 dedicated specialist doctors to begin
with. The esteemed association of the world renowned doctors from
across the country itself is the pillar of strength and key to success of this
Current Limitations in Medical services at Udgir
The skill and intelligence of doctors in Udgir for effective and successful
diagnosis and treatment are beyond doubt. But the limiting factor is the
non-availability of modern equipments, infrastructure and resources.
The population of Udgir and adjoining areas is approximately three and
half lakhs, whereas the number of doctors is 250 and the total bed
strength is 545, in contrast to the required number of 1160 beds.
Besides, the facilities cater to basic care and patients have to be shifted to
Latur, Hyderabad, Aurangabad or Pune for critical care. Sometimes this
non-availability of timely medical intervention locally proves fatal.
Plans to construct a modern hospital very often get defeated by the
debate between idealistic free social service versus absolute commercial
health Industry. The contrast between the two extreme ideas results in
The challenge to assimilate contrasting ideas together led to the seeding
of the dream; a vision of a local modern healthcare facility for our own
people, conceptualized in a cost effective manner.
Life Care project
The LifeCare Hospital project is the culmination of that ambitious dream.
The dream to provide most modern health care facility to our own people,
by our own doctors under our own management. The 'Life Care Team' has
come together to balance the ‘distance’ and ‘difference’ between a dream
and reality with special guidance and technical support from a battery of
internationally renowned doctors. We have taken help of the best credible
names in the industry as architects and financial consultants to shape this
project in the most cost effective and affordable manner for best quality
The hospital, will provide first rate emergency and in-patient health care.
It will be well equipped with required infrastructure, technology and
qualified man power for effective and efficient services.
The hospital has been named as "Life Care Hospital & Research Center"
since our intention is to extend health care from life to life i.e. from
conception to critical care. We are committed professionally and
emotionally to "the care of life for a life time".
We look upon this activity as a way of paying back to the society what it
has given us through our education and upbringing. Besides treatment
and critical activities, we wish to broaden our sphere of activity to social
level by undertaking:
- Health awareness campaign.
- Psychological and emotional care units
- De-addiction center
- Women health care camps and awareness programmes
In this endeavor of ours, I am sure of your blessings, constant guidance
and monitoring. I take this opportunity to request you to be a part of this
project not only as well-wishers but as partners, through any of the
- Institutional contribution
- Corporate social responsibility fund
- Contribution and charity
- Health care plan
I earnestly look forward for your association and best wishes in the
establishment of this 'Health Temple', where only one religion will exist;
the religion of 'Health' and 'Health Loving People'.
Dr. Archana Patil,
