This hospital started its journey from Oct 2005 and is run on the concept of Public-Private Partnership with the BMC for a period of 10 years, extendable to 30 years more.
MLDT has been working in Mother and Child Care along with integration of homoeopathy since 2002. The hospital is located centrally, near Dahisar railway station, in the east.
The main aim of the hospital is to provide quality medical services to the mother & child segment of below poverty line population at rates on par with any other municipal hospitals. Thus all orange ration card holders & below poverty line population would receive mother and child services at BMC rates. Out of the 30-beds of the hospital, 25% i.e. 8 beds are reserved for the below poverty line patients.
Other patients who don’t have orange ration card, but are poor, get our services at concessional rates. The other general population also receives our services in 40-50% less charges as compared to other private hospitals & nursing homes in Dahisar Borivali Belt.
The population near the hospital area is mixed. It consists of middle class, lower middle class and poor people as well. It has less of higher class people. There are 13 padas (cluster of urban slums) around the hospital. The total population in these padas is around 6 lakhs.
