Dera Sacha Sauda, Confluence of Religions, has set up another milestone in the field of medical sciences with the opening of Shah Satnam Ji Speciality Hospital facilitated with high-tech amenities near the Shah Satnam Ji Dham on Nohar-Bhadra Road. The hospital having international level medical facilities was inaugurated by Revered Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan today, 28th March 2014 by planting two trees and by 'Joining the Ribbons' (a tradition customary to the Dera). These two bottle palm trees were pulled from another place. His Holiness replanted these trees in the newly constructed hospital.
Constructed in around 1.25 lakh square feet, this hospital has been created in the shape of a heart and 3 buildings inside are constructed in the shape of S, M, G. All the interior and exterior architecture of hospital has been designed by Revered Guru Ji Himself.
On the inauguration of Shah Satnam Ji Speciality Hospital, Revered Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan said that with the construction of this hospital, no person whether he is rich or poor is required to go abroad for treatment. The specialist doctors will provide treatment for all kinds of diseases. Free treatment for poor people shall be provided. Informing about the features of this high-tech hospital, Revered Guru Ji said that this hospital equipped with 300 indoor beds and 100 extra beds have all the machines imported from Japan and Netherlands, which most of the hospitals in major cities lack. The operation theatre too is fully high tech, covered with steel that will keep it free from bacteria. Even super specialist doctors from foreign countries will keep on visiting the hospital and render their services from time to time.
His Holiness told that HE has designed such architecture of the hospital that patients feel like being at their home and not in the hospitals. All the rooms of hospital have large windows through which greenery can be seen all around. His Holiness further said that when a patient enters into Intensive Care Unit (ICU), psychologically he feels himself as half dead, but in the ICU of this hospital, a patient will feel the open sky above him and see verdant environment outside by which he will not even be able to sense that he has entered ICU. Patients will have a feeling like they are guests here.
Revered Guru Ji stated, "In the year 1972-74, We used to take patients from our paternal village Shri Gurusar Modia to AIIMS by our own vehicle and just on entering the hospital we used to feel like the stringent smell of medicines filled in the environment will make you faint. But the environment of this hospital will make one feel like he is lost in a sea of fragrance. Trees which purify the environment and emit fragrance have been planted all around in the hospital. Special ambulances having all kinds of facilities will also be provided to carry patients."
His Holiness informed that that foundation stone of this hospital was laid on 22nd May 2012, and now this hospital is ready in near about one year and 10 months. Very soon, a center will also be established where obesity will be treated.
On this occasion, while having conversation with the doctors and staff of the hospital, Revered Guru Ji asked them to treat patients with love because love is like an ointment. The patients coming here should get best comfort and definite benefit. Revered Guru Ji then visited the rooms, Operation Theater and ICU etc. in the hospital.
