Building the Human Capital through equitable health care
Investing in the health of our future generations
SVYM’s Health Sector focuses on developing the Human & Social capital through equitable and accessible health care through complementing institution and community based health interventions.
Our Rural Secondary Care Specialty Hospital, Vivekananda Memorial Hospital in Saragur, in Mysuru District, serves over 40,000 rural and tribal individuals every year, acting as a hub for our 15+ community health program engaging different age groups through a lifespan approach.
Presently, SVYM offers promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative care services, delivered through a combination of home, community and institution-based services. A network of grass root health workers, the Mobile Health Unit (MHU) and the NGO’s Secondary Care Hospital, in partnership with the Government Health System, together ensure continuum of care.
Our health interventions engage pregnant women & mothers for maternal-newborn health, identify and prevent diseases and disorders early in childhood and create faculties for individuals to reach their potential as grown ups. We engage specially abled individuals through a comprehensive approach addressing medical and socio-economic factors. Our community based health programs reach remote tribal belts with accessible primary care and encourage health and hygiene seeking behaviour while screening for non-communicable diseases and checking infectious disease outbreaks. Programs to promote healthy ageing in elders and palliative care for those with serious and life limiting illnesses work in synergy with Govt. health care systems.

Ask nothing; want nothing in return.
Give what you have to give;
it will come back to you, but do not think of that now.
