A World-Class hospital where surgeries are done free

India's Sri Satya Sai Institute Described as Heaven on Earth

"We literally bathed in the healing space created through Baba's loving vision...What we say was the highest level of technology, with some equipment even newer than the equipment we use at Duke Medical Centre. But the technology was dwarfed by the context into which everything in the Hospital dwelled - health care in God's service.

Professor of Medicine/Cardiology, Interventional Cardiology, Duke University Medical Centre and Director, Cardiovascular Laboratories, Durham VA Medical Center.

Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences was created by Bhagwan Sai Baba. This hospital is a Heaven on Earth, as the high cost heart surgeries are done free of cost. In this hospital there is no billing counter and all the medical treatments are free to all patients irrespective of caste, creed, religion and financial status. Besides heart surgeries, extremely complex brain & neuro surgeries are also done free of cost.

The most impressive & striking features about this hospital are :

Free medical treatment to all patients irrespective of caste, creed, religion and financial status.

World class state-of-the-art technology

The presence of healing powers of Bhagwan Sai Baba instilled in the patient the firm belief that he or she will get well.

Bhagwan Sai Baba has instructed the doctors at Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences not to conduct medical counseling, but to conduct patient counseling.. The doctors draw up an emotional profile of the patient to figure out the route of his emotional imbalance. This understanding helps the doctors in keeping their patients calm, and studies have proven that a calm mind helps heal a patient better.

Bhagawan Sai Baba had said on the day of the Inauguration of the hospital:

"This (Hospital) is not operating for financial gains. All medicines here will be free. Doctors should understand that it is not medicines alone but God's grace that cures patients. While this building is imposing from the outside, it will also confer inner bliss. This Hospital has a divine quality that will draw the whole world to it. We should see to it that there are no heart diseases (at least) in Karnataka.

Doctors should win over the minds of the patients by talking to them with compassion and concern, the diseases are half cured when the doctors win over the minds of patients by talking to them with love and consideration. The doctors should administer the injection of courage and encouragement.

Compassion is more important than money. Some doctors wonder how we can treat patients free of charge. You can work wonders with purity of heart. Any work which is started with purity of heart is bound to succeed. Money flows if your work is suffused with love and Sacrifice. People will volunteer with adequate funds to support any noble endeavour."

Dr Michael Nobel, chairman of the Appeal of the Peace Prize Laureats Foundation, had said,

"I have never seen anything like this on earth. It is a wonderful feeling, far removed from the national healthcare in the West, which does not seem to work very well.
