Honourable Union Minister of Home Affairs, Mr Amit Shah laid the foundation stone for a new completely free of cost 400-bedded multi-speciality hospital adjoining Sri Sathya Sai Sarla Memorial Hospital at Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli (30 mins from Bengaluru Airport), along with Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai who spearheads several humanitarian service projects in the fields of healthcare, nutrition, and education across 33 countries globally.
Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai, a spiritual leader and philanthropist, has initiated this project and the upcoming 400-bedded multi-speciality hospital under the Prashanti Balamandira Trust to provide free medical care and to establish India’s first free Medical College, to offer completely free of cost medical education to the rural poor.
This is in keeping with our Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi’s call for greater participation of Private and Social Institutions to strengthen Medical Education in the country. The Prashanthi Balamandira Trust has taken this noble initiative to create and nurture committed and skilled doctors to serve the country’s unserved geographies and populations, particularly in the wake of the dislocation of Indian medical students from Ukraine, opting for medical education outside the country due to availability and affordability challenges.
Already a completely free of cost, 150-bedded multi-speciality hospital without a billing counter – Sri Sathya Sai Sarla Memorial Hospital, has been rendering compassionate healthcare service to the needy sections of the society at Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli and it was dedicated to the nation by Honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka – Mr Basavaraj Bommai in August 2021. The new 400 bedded hospital block would cater to several other specialities absolutely free of cost.
