Choithram Hospital & Research Centre is not only a hospital to treat disease but a complete institution for care of whole Society. This hospital was established in the year 1979 by Late Shri Thakurdasji in the fond memory of his father Shri Choithramji Pagarani. Since its inception the founder of this hospital knew the problems of large section of our society, especially the rural masses who couldn't afford treatment. He laid the principle of free OPD, where any patient can consult any specialist doctor, and made available all specialities of medical sciences with finest investigation facilities under one roof..
At Choithram hospital quality patient care is the prime objective. Caring attitude with precise skills are interwoven with modern technology to offer highly specialised diagnostic and therapeutic service. Our aim is to bring world class medical facilities within the reach of a common-man. Sickness is a frightening experience. When a patient comes to a hospital he is entrusting himself to a team of strangers. At Choithram we stretch ourselves to create an atmosphere of mutual trust and confidence. All patients receive the same consideration regardless of cast creed or religion, socio-economic status or sex. Choithram is a referral hospital covering a large spectrum of specialities at one place.
