Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospital Bangalore and Sunshine Heart Institute, Hyderabad, India

The Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital group, headquartered in Bengaluru (India), was founded by Dr. Devi Shetty, an Indian Philanthropist and a cardiac surgeon. Building on cost-saving ideas as mass production and lean systems from the manufacturing industry, Dr. Shetty founded the Narayana Hrudayalaya complex in Bengaluru in 2001. The site has since grown to several hospitals with thousands of patient beds and vast numbers of outpatients across an array of different specialties. Low-cost high-quality healthcare is provided through a relentless focus on reducing costs, which is achieved in large part through a spirit of creativity and innovation.

Dr Anil Kumar Mulpur, Cardiothoracic Surgeon, who was bestowed with the recognition as being one of the “five most outstanding cardiac surgeons of Indian origin in the world’’ by the KG Foundation in 2009, had operated on patients sponsored by the Heart Valve Bank in this prestigious hospital.

Since his move to Sunshine hospital, where he is the Chief Cardiothoracic Surgeon, he is still performing cardiac surgeries on behalf of Heart Valve Bank. Sunshine Hospital is located in Hyderabad and is the only heart institute in Andhra Pradesh, having 3 state-of- the- art cathlabs under one roof.

Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital – Rajkot

History and Objectives of the Super Speciality Hospital in Rajkot

Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital, Rajkot, Gujrat was inaugurated on 4th August 2000 for providing critical medical investigation and treatments for Heart related problems. The philosophy of the Hospital is that:

  • The Medical services provided should be free.
  • Quality that you give to the poor patient should not be inferior to that a rich person can get.
  • Patient is obliging to worship Narayana in him.

Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital is established to fulfil the need of Human Values in Health Care especially for heart diseases, the treatment of which is beyond the reach of the poor. The hospital is committed to the following principles:

1. NON-COMMERCIAL MEDICAL RELIEF
A patient is not a customer and medical service is not a saleable commodity. Therefore all medical care including doctors’ services, hospital stay, nursing care at the hospital are not charged.

2. HUMAN APPROACH
The individuals delivering health care viz. doctors, nurses, technicians, administrators should be human in thought and action, serving the patients with a sense of LOVE and COMPASSION.

3. SPIRITUALITY- A MEDICAL CONCEPT
The spirit of man is a divine force energising his physical and mental well being. The divine will of the patients and doctors evokes the innate healing power in the mind and body. The hospital has also been working on prevention and reversal of heart diseases since last few years, based on this principle. The hospital is a monument of the above human values and is therefore infused with an atmosphere of spiritual peace and divinity.

The Hospital is equipped with state of the art technology with latest equipment and facility to perform open heart and closed heart surgeries by highly experienced and skilled cardio vascular surgeons.
