General and Super Specialty Hospital

About General and Super Specialty Hospital

The Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences in Puttaparthi and Bengaluru provide the highest and complex surgeries. The General Hospital in Puttaparthi was established in 1956. The uniqueness of these hospitals is that the patients are cared for with the utmost care and love and there is no billing department!

On average the Super hospitals serve over 250,000 outpatient procedures and inpatient surgeries. The General hospital serves 400,000 patients annually. Everyone has opportunities to serve as volunteers from patient greater to surgeons, keeping the cost to a minimum without compromising the service and care. No one is turned away from receiving care.

Prasanthi Trust is honored to support the needs of the hospitals. In 2016, a new General Hospital OPD building was funded and by the generous donors of the Trust.


Disease has no distinction; it may afflict anybody, be it a pauper or a millionaire. We too have no such distinction. Here the treatment will be rendered totally free of cost to the rich and poor alike. Not merely this, even the food will be supplied free. Our aim is to cure the patients of their ailments and send them home happy and healthy. This Institution will serve the poor forever. Some may have a mistaken notion that it will only be a temporary one. All the institutions established by Sai are eternal.”
– Sri Sathya Sai Baba
