| Late Dr Vasantrao Pawar Ex Sarchitnis, Maratha Vidhya Prasarak Samaj, Nashik
Late Dr Vasantrao Pawar the Ex Sarchitnis of MVP Samaj and the conceptualiser of the MVP'S Hi Tech hospital, recipient of the prestigious Dr. B.C. Roy award, went to his heavenly abode on 7 October 2010 due to a massive cardiac arrest.
From procuring the official permission to start the medical college in 1989 to it having achieved the status of a multidisciplinary Post graduate institute with a hi-tech super specialty hospital now, every milestone was achieved because of his relentless effort and as a mark of respect and gratitude to his immense contribution, this college was aptly named as Dr Vasantrao Pawar medical college hospital and research center on 4 April 2010.
He took personal interest in all the routine activities in the functioning of the college inspite of his extremely busy schedule as he was also holding the appointment of MLC, for constituency of Nashik. His primary focus always remained patients and students. He truly believed that the eventual success of a medical Institution depends on the quality medical care you give to your patients at affordable cost and hence he saw it personally that the poor and needy patients get quality medical care at a negligible cost.
