Ramdev Rao Memorial Hospital
Most of the growth today in hospital facilities in India is in the private sector, which is too expensive for the average patient. The 30 bed Ramdev Rao Memorial Hospital was started in 2002 on the SRH campus as a not for profit institution, to provide quality care for indigent patients at an affordable cost.
In August 2008, the hospital was handed over to HMRI (104) under a management agreement. Initially an outpatient facility was started. As the numbers grew, in April 2009 the inpatient facility was started, and currently it is run as a full fledged general hospital. The hospital has a fully equipped Laboratory, Diagnostics, Theatre’s, Physiotherapy Department. As the number of patients increases and demand is growing it has been decided to add another building to increase the capacity to a 50 bed facility.

SRH has evolved into one of the finest service, training and research institutions with a bed strength of 200 inpatients. A number of papers have been presented at various national and international conferences regarding the new surgical techniques developed for reconstructive surgery of deformed hands of the leprosy patients. These procedures are being adopted by other similar institutions.
The plastic surgery department of Gandhi Medical College Hospital has been observing SRH's surgical techniques and have adopted similar techniques in their hospitals. In addition, a group of plastic surgeons from Surgicorps International/USA who had come to Hyderabad to train the college's post graduate students, visited SRH to observe the new surgical techniques adopted for hand surgery.
As it is a critical part of any orthopaedic surgery training programme, post graduate students and interns from nearby colleges are posted to work for varying periods in the physiotherapy department.

The post graduate students of social work from local colleges are also regularly posted to SRH for six month rotations. In addition, medical officers of primary health centers, medical students, post graduate nursing students, as well as general nursing trainees also spend time training at SRH.
