Ahmedabad :  Dr KR Shroff Foundation (KRSF), a decade-old institution dedicated towards uplifting underprivileged communities through education, on Thursday announced it has partnered with Dr Jivraj Mehta Smarak Health Foundation (JMSHF), for philanthropic causes. As part of the collaboration, KRSF recently funded two major medical equipment at the Jivraj Mehta Hospital in Ahmedabad namely the Pneumatic Tubing System and the Endoscopy System.

The 202-bed multispecialty hospital is a trust-run entity and offers all major medical services at affordable costs. It is equipped with an OPD, an ICU facility, a casualty department along with radiology, pathology, kidney dialysis, health check-up and physiotherapy departments run by a team of seasoned 350 doctors. The hospital is also home to a fully functional blood bank.
