However, doctors as well as modern equipments do not enliven a hospital. Dedicated and competentParamedical staff are equally essential. Since it was difficult to get formally qualifiedParamedical personnel due to   remote   area,   in early eighties SEWA-Rural decided to train local rural tribal girls & boys by extensive practical training and demonstration. As a result inhouse trained nurses, Lab & xray assistant, counsellor, maintenance supervisor help managing hospital in an effective way. This brought a new and better change into their lives. The hands doing all sorts of labour began caring for patients and giving new hope of life to them.

A glance at the achievements of the hospital while it is in  the 4th decade, reveals that people of the 1500 surrounding interior villages take advantage of the hospital having about 15 full time doctors. About 200 patients from these villages receive medical treatment daily in OPD. Every year about 70000 OPD & 12000 Indoor patients are treated & about 2200 deliveries & 7000 operations are carried out. Despite of concessional charges, about 35% of OPD and 75% of Indoor patients are treated free.
About Rs. 2.0 Crores are being spent for hospital services per annum. Of this 50% is met from State Government grant.Various central government schemes like Chiranjivi, Rashtriya Swasthaya Bima Yojana Etc. meant for poor people help  SEWA Rural achieving  its objective of serving marginalized families. The expenditure of 2/3rd of the patients is borne by SR and only 25% expenditure is met by patients who can afford it. Hence, for meeting the deficit of about Rs. 50 lacs, support is constantly solicited. Every year the deficit is met by the co-operation and support of benevolent organisations like Lilavati R. Shah Medical Relief Trust & Ur Asha Javeri Foundation Trust (both from Mumbai) beside donations from other sources. In recognition and appreciation of the excellent management of this rural hospital, the Bajaj Group of industries and the Bombay Management Association bestowed a national award on the hospital in 1989 for innovative hospitals & health care management in non-Govt. Rural hospital category. SEWA Rural was awarded “Best First Referral unit” in tribal area in the year 2011
