Manohriday 2019

Annual Newsletter of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, EPIP Area, Whitefield. This is brought out during the anniversary of Hospital on 19th January and contains glimpses of year gone by.

The Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Whitefield completes 18 years! For those who have seen it come to life, it seems just the other day that it was inaugurated by the Prime Minister.

It also seems only the other day that Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the revered founder of the Institute visited the Hospital, partook lunch with all the staff, interacted with the doctors and patients, and overwhelmed all with His presence, love and compassion.

While we still miss His physical form and the valuable interactions, His spirit continues to pervade this Institute and guide it. His work continues to expand on various fronts, with the patient being the primary focus.

In this issue, we focus on the human side of this enterprise. We showcase a few visiting doctors, who commit their time and expertise in treating patients, with no other motive than to serve the patient. Be inspired by the octogenerian Sevadal, who has been serving patients for over two decades.

The Institute continues to be on the forefront of academics as the DNB gold medal in Cardiology proves, and so also the numerous awards received by the staff in various fora. The conferences and workshops conducted by the clinical departments continue to stand testimony that the Institute believes that providing quality education too, is a much- needed service, apart from the high-quality free patient care.

Of course, the patients we touch is the reason we exist and no issue of Manohriday is complete without some patient stories. Read about Dinabandhu Ghosh and how he chose to repay the surgeon who operated on him. And in Dilip’s own words how the Institute helped him overcome his disability.

Holistic healing and wholesome growth are what come to mind, when you read about the updates from the Wellness clinic, or the investments made in new infrastructure, and also the outreach initiatives.

The Institute journeys on, and with Baba’s grace, aspires to touch new standards of excellence. We heartily welcome you readers, to occupy the ring-side seats and enjoy the journey of the Institute so far.
