Diseases of the soul are more dangerous and more numerous than those of the body. ~Cicero.
Bhaktivedanta Hospital was established not just to meet the health needs of the burgeoning suburban residents of Mira Road, but also give solace for their mind and spirit. A non-profit organization supported by philanthropic donors, it extends its services to the society in form of subsidized treatment of the underprivileged, an active role in treatment of disaster victims and free health camps for the needy.
Bhaktivedanta Hospital firmly believes that, health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
The spacious and sparklingly clean premises are permeated with ethereal calmness as soothing devotional music plays in the background. Modern medical technology and healthcare is offered with a unique integrated approach to Ayurveda, Homeopathy and other complementary medical therapies. Trained personals from the dedicated spiritual care department offer counseling, prayers and meditation for the patients and relatives to help them face the trials of disease.
