Sixty years ago, on December

opened in Mumbai, today it has
morphed into the Hinduja
Hospital. As part of its
diamond jubilee celebrations,
the hospital, a not-for-profit
institution, organised a medical
camp for senior citizens in
its vicinity. The free medical
camp was held in a nearby garden
and included diagnostic tests
and consultations with senior
doctors. Municipal Commissioner
of Mumbai, Subodh Kumar
inaugurated the camp.

Chairman S.P. Hinduja, who
was present on the occasion,
took a keen interest in the
photo gallery and shared some
anecdotes.

‘‘60 years ago our father,
P.D. Hinduja,started this
hospital to provide
affordable, quality healthcare
for all. I am proud to see the
Hinduja Hospital parivaar of
trustees, management, doctors,
nurses and staff working
with full dedication to live up
to his vision.’’

A.P. Hinduja, trustee, felicitated
the chief guest and said:
‘‘Hinduja Hospital is like a temple
for our family. It is a matter
of great satisfaction for us to
see that 60 years on this institution
is operating according to
the belief that health and education
are the fundamental
rights of every citizen.’’

the hospital also launched a
mobile health unit for the rural
masses. More such buses will be
