An M.D. from MSU Baroda (batch of 1990), Dr. Ashish Mehta has dedicated his entire life to serving newborn babies and their parents through neonatal intensive care. Along with his equally passionate team, he has brought back smiles of countless worried parents and saved numerous babies who needed special care immediately after their birth.
He began with his private practice in Ahmedabad and later worked as a lecturer in the Wadia Hospital for Children. He trained under Dr. Udani at the Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai, but his quest for excellence didn’t let him settle there. He moved to Australia to work with different perinatal centres in Sydney and Melbourne, while also working with the New South Wales Neonatal Emergency Transport Services (NETS). He also worked under the able guidance of Dr. Victor Hu at the Monash Medical Centre, Melbourne.
In his 3 decade long career, Dr. Mehta also offered his services to the Sick Kids’ Hospital in Canada. In 2001, he finally turned his dream into reality by establishing state-of-the-art standalone Arpan Newborn Care Centre.
