Parul Sevashram Hospital’s Dr. Krupa Vaghela and Ekta Modi are two examples of such key contributors in health administration, whose selfless commitment and dedication has ensured the wellness of numerous patients both citywide and state wide. The efficient allocation of medical resources has been one of the most challenging issues across the healthcare sector, however Parul Sevashram Hospital has managed to strategically navigate through these challenges by successfully catering for the wellness of over 3000 patients till now and continues to treat more than 300 patients every day.
Dr. Krupa Vaghela has been serving the healthcare needs of the patients as Parul Sevashram Hospital’s medical administrator. At the peak of this pandemic crisis, she has been looking after the healthcare of the patients, while at the same time supporting the doctors, nurses and other medical staff.
