Our foundation was registered in the year 1992, and in 1994, the hospital started functioning. It is located in such a vicinity that provides easy access to the services available in the center for poor people from nearby underdeveloped and drought-prone areas.

The hospital, situated on the Pune-Nasik highway (known for accidents), frequently receives cases of accidents and multiple polytrauma injuries, including fatal ones. Given the frequent occurrence of accidents, this center is a boon to the community residing in the nearby villages in terms of critical care.

Dr. Sadanand D. Raut and Dr. Mrs. Pallavi Raut, both accomplished medical professionals, are driven by deep compassion for the poor and tribal communities who lack access to basic medical services in rural areas and are unable to afford them. In 1992, they established Vighnahar Medical Foundation with the sole purpose of serving the medical needs of the impoverished and drought-affected populations.

Dr. Sadanand Raut is a member of the WHO Roster of Experts on Snake Bite Envenoming. He serves as an expert and reviewer for the NNN conference in Tanzania. Additionally, he is a member of the National Snake Bite Treatment Guideline (STG) Committee.

For many years, Dr. Sadanand D. Raut and Dr. Mrs. Pallavi Raut have been providing medical services to those in need. The foundation’s humble beginnings trace back to 1987 when the founders initiated a small dispensary in the village of Umbraj, near Narayangaon, Tal: Junnar, Dt: Pune. Over time, this endeavor grew into a full-fledged hospital, catering to the healthcare requirements of marginalized communities and handling critical emergency cases.

At Vighnahar Medical Foundation, we are committed to making a meaningful impact on the lives of the underserved, and we remain steadfast in our mission to bring quality healthcare closer to those who need it the most.
