About Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital

In 1965, Sita Devi Sachdev (Dr Sita Bhateja’s maiden name) started a nursing home in her own name. In 1969, a charitable trust was established under the name of Dr (Mrs) Sita Bhateja Nursing Home. The hospital building and all the equipment were donated to the trust, as was 50% of Dr Sita Bhateja’s income. The charitable wing of the trust was christened Sri Jetha Nand Hospital for the Poor, in memory of Dr Sita Bhateja’s father-in-law, who along with his wife, donated money to help establish the hospital.
