It was way back in 2009 when we had thought about setting up a chain of dialysis center. No – back then the idea was to set up one center and see where it goes. The city we had thought of was Kota. Why? All small cities lacked this facility and we had identified that the indirect costs linked to dialysis was the main reason why patients in India we not undergoing dialysis. And we had to begin somewhere. Why not in the home town of one of the founders.
But the ideas have life of their own. Sparsh started in Hyderabad and while we started a center in Sambalpur which is my hometown but we never got around to setting up a dialysis center in Kota. That was untill now.
Sparsh is partnering with Rajasthan Government to setup dialysis centers at 10 district hospitals at Jaipur, Jhunjhunu, Churu, Ajmer, Bhilwara, Alwar, Bundi, Sikar, bharatpur and ofcourse Kota. This is a good initiative by Rajasthan government and we believe many more state will follow soon. Looking forward to more of such partnerships and serving many more patients!
