Right from her formative years as a medical professional, Dr Sita’s strong conviction that all people should have access to healthcare had seen her work in places such as the refugee camps of post-Partition India. This was a value deeply instilled in her by her family and was the bedrock of her belief that she needed to serve society.
So, when the trust was established, offering medical facilities to the public, one section was exclusively dedicated to taking care of the poor and disadvantaged. This wing of the hospital was christened the 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. Sri Jetha Nand’s only condition when he did so was that it be used in perpetuity to help all those who couldn’t afford care.
In the 45 years since then, in keeping with the philosophy of our founder and Sri Jetha Nand, we have done our utmost to serve those in need. The Jetha Nand Hospital for the Poor has twenty beds in which hundreds of underprivileged patients have come to lay their heads and be treated over the years.
Here, we perform everything from routine treatment for the flu treat to brain surgery. All procedures are free of charge or partially charged, based on the patients’ ability to afford it. All pro bono procedures receive the same expert level of care from our senior surgeons in the same state-of-the-art equipment operating theatre, as our paying patients.If you require medical attention and do not have the financial means to afford it, do not fear. Get in touch with us and we’ll do our very best to help.
If you wish to help us treat more patients, you can make a contribution (of cash or kind) here.
