Shalby Hospital : The Journey

Shalby Hospital, a humble initiative by Dr. Vikram Shah in 1994 with a six bed medical facility in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India is among the leading multispecialty hospital conglomerates today, with 9 multispecialty hospitals having full-fledged operations across 6 locations in Western and Central India and 3 more multispecialty medical facilities in various stages of completion and commissioning at centres - Jaipur, Surat, Naroda (Ahmedabad).

The meteoric rise of Shalby Hospitals into the orbit of “Best in Class” world medical tourism and transforming Ahmedabad, Gujarat and India in to this coveted stature, lies in the vision of its founder, Dr. Vikram I.
