Ruby Hall Clinic: Pune's First Nationally Accredited Hospital
Ruby Hall Clinic had a humble beginning when the founder chairman Dr. K.B. Grant, an eminent cardiologist himself, started a small nursing home in 1959 in the bungalow Ruby Hall, owned by General David Sassoon at the present location of the hospital with just two beds. In 1966 it was converted from a private institution to a public charitable trust - Poona Medical Foundation. It was later converted to the Grant Medical Foundation in 2000. Today Ruby Hall Clinic boasts of 550 inpatient beds including 130 intensive care beds; with staff strength of 150 consultants, 500 panel doctors and 1400 paramedical staff.
