HOW IT ALL BEGAN..
DDMM is a tribute to the remarkable personality of Shri Dharmsinh Desai – Member of Parliament, businessman, educationist, philanthropist and a true friend of Nadiad. His sad demise in Indonesia due to massive myocardial infarction left his family and the entire
town in despair. However, it was soon realized that a fitting tribute to the city’s Samaritan would be by constructing a hospital in Nadiad that is devoted to the humanitarian care of those suffering from diseases of the heart. Thus, by the collaboration of Methodist Church in India and Dharmsinh Desai Foundation, a unique society, now known as DDMM Heart Institute, was formed. This comprises DDMM Institute of Cardiology, CJ Patel Institute of Cardiac Research and GMDC Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.
Dharmsinh Desai Memorial Methodist Institute of Cardiology and Cardiovascular surgery, known as the DDMM Heart Institute, is a super specialty hospital in Nadiad, dedicated for Cardiovascular care. It combines state of the art facilities with compassionate care and makes this available to people of all walks of life – both from Gujarat and the surrounding regions
Today, DDMM is a cardiac super specialty center with ultra modern diagnostic and treatment facilities consisting of centrally air conditioned cardiac operation theaters, critical care units and its most recent addition- the AXIOM Artis dFC with flat detector technology from Siemens, the hi tech catheterization laboratory for complete imaging, examination and interventions. In addition the Blood Bank, Pathology, Physiotherapy and Dietary departments ensure round-the – clock care
DDMM has the vision of ‘making world class cardiac care available and affordable to all’. In shouldering this responsibility, it has to constantly adapt to the changing scenarios in health care. It is this nature which empowers it to take care of the precious beat of life….
