Bestowing Hope Through the Years

An idealist in himself, our beloved founder, Late Padma Bhushan Dr. K B Grant envisioned Ruby Hall Clinic to flourish into a multi-organ transplant facility. A predecessor of its time, the hospital undertook the first live donor kidney transplant way back in 1988.

Almost a decade later, the first deceased donor kidney transplant was conducted under the expertise of Dr. A G Huprikar and Dr. S G Deshpande in April 1997.

Fast forward to the present, Ruby Hall Clinic is at the forefront of medical care and clinical advances in the area of organ transplantation.

A quick glance through the years highlights landmark events that show our lifelong commitment to this cause:

  • First living related kidney transplant in Pune – 1988
  • First deceased donor kidney transplant in Pune – Apr 11, 1997
