Siddhagiri Hospital and Research Centre (SHRC)
Siddhagiri Hospital and Research Centre (SHRC) was established in 2010 amidst the hillocks of Kaneri village in the district of Kolhapur. The necessity of making medical facilities available to the marginalized section of the society was underscored for the first time by the late Shree Kadasiddheshwar Swamiji Maharaj. This dream was later fulfilled by his successor Shri Adrishya Kadasiddheshwar Maharaj. Villagers, devotees and many other inspired minds had come forward to contribute their bit for this noble deed. The large amount for building the hospital was raised from Siddhagiri Museum and still contributes to support the treatment of the needy.
Today, SHRC has been acknowledged as the premiere healthcare institution with the mission of providing all the modern healthcare amenities at affordable cost to 'ALL', irrespective of their religion, caste and class.
Mission - 'निराधारांना आधार' i.e. 'Hope for the Needy'
SHRC's 'charity wing' makes sure that the vulnerable section of the society is not deprived of any of the medical care. The wing ensures that the needy ones get all the assistance by availing various schemes such as, Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayee Arogya Yojana, Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Yojana and Vajpayee Arogyashree Yojana. SHRC has been functioning on the basis of 'no profit - no loss' principle. Till date, over 2 lakh surgeries, free of cost, have been carried out at SHRC. This unique approach had forced competing hospitals in the vicinity to reconsider and restructure their 'price chart’ and improved the quality of the treatment of the patient.
Also, a team of doctors from SHRC regularly visit the surrounding villages and carry out a number of cancer detection and eye screening camps. The Mobile Eye-Care Unit of SHRC, till date has reached to more than 4600 people in 38 villages of Kolhapur and Belgaon district. Besides, camps for dental checkup, ECG checkup and neuro health checkup are also carried out regularly. Through its polio and squint treatment camp, SHRC doctors have treated over 500 patients free of cost

Panchakarma is all about detoxifying the body and experiencing rejuvenation. Panchakarma is one of the most effective treatments in Ayurveda and it has been prescribed on a seasonal basis for everyone.
The Sanskrit word Panchakarma means “five actions” or “five treatments”. These five methods are used to clean the body of toxic materials which are left within the body due to various reasons like disease or unhealthy lifestyle. An IT professional from a metropolis or a farmer from a remote village, a government employee or corporate personnel, a college-going youngster or a senior citizen, so called 'modern lifestyle' is hardly sparing anyone.
Generally, any human body has the innate capacity to efficiently remove these unwanted elements. However many times this act of 'removal' is not achieved by the body because of several issues like, unhealthy dietary patterns, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, stressful lifestyle or hormonal imbalances. Accumulation of such toxic elements can even lead to some serious diseases.
