Sion Hospital

In fifty years, what was a fifty bed Indian Military Hospital at Dharavi, has now become a state of the art 1,416 bedded Sion Hospital. The main strength of the hospital is the sustained excellence of its emergency areas. It was L.T.M.G. Hospital that started the first Trauma Care Center in India two decades ago. An ambulance equipped with a two-way radio provided emergency treatment to the patient at the accident site. The Trauma Ward handles more than three-thousand seriously injured patients each year. The Intensive Cardiac Care Unit has pioneered non-operative methods in treating patients with acute heart attacks. In Mumbai, L.T.M.G.’s Medical Intensive Care Unit was in the forefront in treating such emergencies as the chlorine gas leak in 1985, the plague epidemic in 1994 and the Bhiwandi food poisoning in 1996. The Pediatric and the Neonatal Intensive Care Units have been doing exceptional work in the treatment of newborns and the young children of Mumbai. It will not be an exaggeration to state that L.T.M.G. Hospitals are forever in a “state of alert” for disasters. They have reduced the reaction time of disasters to minutes due to the existence of a disaster management plan.
