An Overview


‘vaidyo nārāyaṇo hariḥ’ is an ancient Indian phrase which states that “A Doctor is a form of Narayana or God Himself”. This timeless truth is at the core of the work that is done through this mission, leading the way to establish global models of tertiary care providing quality services, totally free of cost.


The Burden of Congenital Heart Diseases in India

The Challenge of Healthy Childhood in India is two-pronged. First, those detected with diseases and defects, face inadequate availability and accessibility to quality healthcare and the large numbers of those who remain undetected or undiagnosed, sadly miss out on the joy and benefit of a healthy and happy childhood.

The burden and pain of congenital heart diseases on children and their families is a cruel and an unfortunate reality of our times. Sadly, it is the commonest disease at birth in India with an incidence of 240,000 per annum. Surgical intervention is often unavoidable to a critically diseased child.

Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani aims to establish a holistic ecosystem for Child Heart Care. These Centres across India are unique in as much as they are High Quality and Large Volume Paediatric Cardiac Centres, as they are key Nodal Centres of Community Health, Research and Training. The Hospitals are one of their kind Centres for Child Heart Care providing Totally Free of Cost Care to the needy.

Sanjeevani recognises the importance of Prevention and Early Detection in comprehensively addressing this national burden. While the Research Programme aims at unravelling the possible causes of Congenital Heart Diseases, the Divine Mother and Child Health Program provides access to quality healthcare facilities through its rural Ante natal care and Child screening initiatives. The child is tomorrow’s citizen and the future of the country.

The Hospital was dedicated to the service of the nation by Honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka, Sri Basavaraj Bommai, along with Dr K Sudhakar – Minister of Health and Family Welfare and Medical Education – Government of Karnataka on 27 August 2021.

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Nation

Divine Mother and Child Health Program

To further the nation’s commitment towards a healthy life for its children and create a holistic and sustainable impact on society, it was imperative to focus on the preventive and educative healthcare spectrum of Child Heart Care. It is in this context that the hospital’s Department of Public Health and Research launched the Divine Child Health Program in 2013 – a comprehensive early detection and systemic health screening programme for rural school going children, to create a holistic and sustainable impact on the society.

The Child Health Screening is based on Government of India’s Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK) and focuses on detection of 4Ds:

  1. Defects at birth
  2. Deficiencies
  3. Disease
  4. Developmental delays and disabilities.

The programme expanded into the Divine Mother and Child Health Program in September 2017, focusing on Preventive Care for Pregnant women and children.

Preventive Healthcare

Rural Healthcare Services

Preventive health care that provides early diagnosis is the need of the hour. Sai Swasthya Wellness Centres are primary diagnostic healthcare centres that are being set up in the rural hinterlands under the rural community outreach program of Sri Madhusudan Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, a one-of-its-kind free of cost medical college and hospital established by Prashanti Balamandira Trust. By collaborating with the various like-minded organisations and government initiated programmes, these centres will diagnose basic health issues with the help of healthcare professionals specially trained for this purpose, and also dispense medicines free of cost.

Keeping preventive healthcare as the futuristic vision of India’s healthcare model, Sai Swasthya will offer primary healthcare services like preventive diagnostics, outpatient consultations, telehealth consultations, rural outreach camps, and referrals to tertiary healthcare centres of the trust and allied hospitals which provide all services totally free of cost. In the next ten years 6,000 centres will be set up across the country at every Taluk, and 6000 young school-pass outs or students pursuing their higher education, with higher priority to girls, will be trained to assist patients coming to the centre alongside qualified medical professionals thus creating rural employment as well.

Making quality healthcare accessible to every citizen of India to create a Swastha Bharath (स्वस्थ भारत) and Samruddha Bharath (समृद्ध भारत) during the amrit kaal is the vision of Sai Swasthya and the associated healthcare institutions of the Trusts, under the guidance of Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai.
