Chandanwale takes over as JJ Hospital dean

Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Ajay Chandanwale took over as the new dean of State-run JJ Hospital on Thursday. He was earlier attached to the BJ Medical College (BJMC) in Pune for more than seven years. The BJMC staff had protested against Dr. Chandawale’s transfer earlier this year. “We had a bond. BJMC was like a big family”, Dr. Chandanwale said.

“I served at JJ as an orthopaedic surgeon from 2000 to 2011. As dean, I will focus on creating good doctors and offering good patient services,” Dr. Chandawale said.
