The Tinplate Hospital started as a captive
hospital only for the employees and the families of the Tinplate Company.In 1998, after a
massive downsizing from 5500 employees to 1760 employees,the Company management had to
rethink whether they needed such a large hospital. Due to the initiative of several
doctors, the management decided to convert the Hospital into a 'Profit Centre' and open it
to Corporate clientele. A Tinplate Medical Council was formed to oversee the
administrative and policy-making functions. Nineteen other companies decided to make the
Tinplate Hospital their referral hospital like Timken India, Tata Robins Fraser, B.O.C,
Tata Ryerson, Tata Electric, Lafarge, M.T.M.H., State Bank Of India, Tata Consultancy
Services, Larsen & Toubro, N.M.L., A.D.M.H, INCAB, ISWP, Uranium Corporation of India,
DVC, Jamipol, Usha Martin & Medicare.
In 1999, after some success in revenue earings,
it was decided to expand the hospital services to include an Intensive Care Unit, Trauma
Centre and Blood Bank. A charitable trust was formed. It was called Dr.T.C.John Memorial
Charitable Foundation. Under the aegis of this Trust, we received a grant of Rs 65 lakhs
from the Timken Foundation, USA to construct an Intensive Care Unit and Rs 35 lakhs from
Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, Mumbai to construct a Trauma Centre. Both have been constructed
and are operational.
