There is a considerable development in all aspects of medical profession and nursing profession in one of the most important part in the development of Clinical Care of patients.

Keeping this in view Surabhi NGO Welfare Organization thought of starting School of Nursing, an institution par excellence in the backward area of Bidar district. This school of Nursing is known as “Prayavi School of Nursing”, BIDAR.


For number of years the patients of Bidar district were forced to go to Hyderabad for investigations and treatment. These patients faced the problem of Language, stay and expenses at Hyderabad. Besides the distance between Bidar and Hyderabad was a great handicap for serious patients. Some times this distance costed the lives of patients.

Taking into consideration all these problems of diseased persons the Yerolkar family started “Prayavi Hospital” which serves the patients with modern facilities and patients are treated with State of art facilities and specialist doctors of reputation. Medical profession in Bidar will be proud to known that some of the patients came back from Hyderabad and got cured with the most advanced techniques in surgical management.

This hospital was started on 30th April 2002 as a multispeciality Hospital comprising of well equipped major and minor OT, ICCU, NICU, Accidents and Emergency Ward, Labour Room, Trauma & Critical care unit and the hospital is successfully running 6 major departments of General Surgery, Peadiatries, General Medicine, Ortho-paedics, ENT, Gynecology etc.

This Hospital also offers free Consultation to polio victims, handicaps, Victims of AIDS, Senior Citizens (60+), Freedomfighters, BPL etc.

The committee which inspected this hospital was all praise for the medical services offered in this hospital. This hospital is also recognized for Yeshasvini (farmers insurance scheme), Arogya bhagya (Police dept.) KPTCL, mediassist, TTK, Good Health plan etc. Within a short span of 2 years we have successfully conducted 760 operations and 175 yeshasvini patients were operated.

Taking all these factors into consideration Karnataka Govt. is pleased to permit us to start a School of Nursing at this Hospital. The permission of Govt. of Karnataka was accorded through G.O. No. HFW / MME 165, Dated 20-02-2004.
