In line with Lal Bahadur Shastri's foresight, in 1969, and as a part of Gandhi Centenary Program, Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS) was established in 1969 to provide quality education and healthcare especially keeping in mind the socioeconomic milieu of the rural masses, & was proposed to be set up on the soil of Sevagram. After the approval of the Planning Commission and with the blessings of the President and the Prime Minister of the country the institute was formed. It was decided that the Government of India, Maharashtra Government and the Kasturba Health society would share the expenditure on it in the proportion of 50:25:25.

When the first batch of 60 students was enrolled in the year 1969, MGIMS came up as independent India's first attempt give a new direction to rural health. Today it boasts of having groomed more than 2300 doctors. After more than three decades of its birth, MGIMS has come a long way. From a mere 15 bedded hospital to its 972 beds and a hospital with state of the art facilities, MGIMS has created its own small history. In 2014-2015, about 70,000 attended the outpatient department of the institute. More than 48,000 patients were admitted during this period.

MGIMS has grown into an institute nursing the rural community with nominal fees. It has also been working towards its community oriented mission by working strongly with its alcohol and drug de-addiction centre, which is now in its eighth year. It has also implemented the concept of health insurance in rural areas. In 2014-15 as many as 68000 families around Sevagram have availed this facility.

The name "Sevagram" which means imparting service, was given to Shegaon by Mahatma, and MGIMS came forth to live up Sevagram to its name. Looking from the microscope at that time perhaps Gandhi did see the tiny seed grow into an institution of this stature. We at MGIMS strive harder to live up to our own history and heritage.
