Emergency & Trauma

Overview

An Emergency can strike anyone, anywhere, anytime. This is an undeniable universal truth that a few minutes can mean the difference between life and death. The only thing standing in between is timely medical care. Most people do not plan for a medical emergency, although everyone may have one at a point of time in their lives.

At Sarvodaya Hospital’s Centre for Emergency & Trauma, we imbibe the hospital’s philosophy of ‘Good Health for All’ & aim to provide timely, efficient, & affordable care to all.
