SDM College of Medical sciences & Hospital in Dharwad, apart from providing quality medical education, is creating a revolution in health care scenario of Northern Karnataka. It is a brain child of Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade, Rev. President of SDM Educational Society. Way back in year 2001, a group of people from Dharwad approached Dr. Heggade and requested him to start a Hospital. Dr. Heggade, understanding the health care needs of this part of Karnataka decided to start a Hospital with a Medical College attached to it.
SDM Hospital is positioned on the highway connecting Hubli and Dharwad. It is spread over 65 acres of land, in a serene atmosphere. This campus, apart from Medical College and Hospital, houses Nursing Institute, Physiotherapy College, Students Hostels, Staff Quarters and abodes for patient’s relatives. The self-effacing and hard working services from staff have been making plenty of people pull through their health every day. Daily workshops and conferences are being conducted to improve the knowledge of doctors working within the Hospital and also those within twin cities. For the community, Hospital conducts regular free health camps, family planning camps, cataract camps, spirometry camps etc. Within very short span since its inception, under the able leadership of Dr. Niranjan Kumar, Medical Director, this Hospital has made a prominent name in the medical map of India.
