Sri Sathya Sai Medical Trust


The guiding principles driving all medical relief activities of the trust can be summed up as follows:

  • Medicine for all: Medical aid should be the right of every individual, regardless of caste, creed, nationality, or colour.

  • Medicine free from the stigma of commercialisation: The act of healing should be restored to its pristine sanctity, which can be done only when it ceases to be a commodity bought and sold in the market.

  • Human values in medical care: The human agents of the delivery system of health care, be they health administrators, doctors, nurses, or technicians, should be perfectly "human" in thought, word, and deed. They should demonstrate the five human values --Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love, and Nonviolence-- in every act of theirs.

  • Spiritual well being as a medical concept: Present day medicine stops at laying down health practices and policies to provide physical, mental, and psychological health of the individual. It makes little or no attempt at strengthening the SPIRIT of a person --the divine force in them that energises their physical, mental, and psychological systems. Modern medicine has lost its inherent and intrinsic proximity to spirituality. Until that element is restored, medicine or health care could never be holistic.

Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital,
Much has been spoken throughout the world about the concept of integrated health practices. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has also actively advocated it. This integration is being effectively implemented in a thorough and professional manner at Prasanthi Gram.
Primary Health Care
Medical camps are organised on a regular basis in rural areas where patients are given medicines free of cost. Hundreds of thousands of patients are treated for eye ailments and thousands of cataract operations are performed. Free medical dispensaries are being run at various places by Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations. Blood donation camps are organised. Medical teams from Sri Sathya Sai Organisations of various states visit orphanages, old age homes, leprosy homes etc. for medical checkup on a continuous basis.
Secondary Healthcare (The general hospitals)
Sri Sathya Sai General Hospitals at Prasanthi Nilayam and Whitefield, Bangalore, render free medical aid. These hospitals offer up-to-date facilities, and the dedicated and selfless service of the resident and visiting doctors and nurses have resulted in their phenomenal growth. The majority of the patients are from socially and economically weaker sections of society. Both hospitals today have speciality units. The various departments in the general hospitals are: general medicine, pediatrics, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, urology, ENT surgery, ophthalmology, Sri Sathya Sai Eye Bank, obstetrics, and gynecology.
Tertiary Health Care (the super-speciality hospitals)
These hospitals provide excellent patient care facilities to all, free of cost. Even heart surgeries like CABG and valve replacement are done entirely free of cost. Most of the patients are from socially and economically weaker sections of society.
