Konkan region in Maharashtra has villages located at far off distances in between hills and valleys and health care remains largely inaccessible. This region has inadequate health facilities, illiteracy, poverty, poor health awareness, misconceptions due to blind faith and inaccessibility with scare transportation services. Till recently, patients traveled to Mumbai (which is 250 kms away) for medical treatment. The population in this region belongs to socio-economically disadvantaged group; and availing medical care in cities includes travel and accommodation cost which remains largely unaffordable. Hence to reach the most difficult to reach with good medical care, the Shree Vitthalrao Joshi Charities Trust established the B.K.L.Walawalkar Hospital in Ratnagiri district in 1996.
