This belief led him to establish the "National Health and Education Society" in 1954. He would visit the hospital devotedly every day to meet the patients, enquire about their needs and ensure that they were comfortable and received adequate treatment.
He would pay particular attention to the poor and the needy. His method of screening patients to qualify free treatment was quite simple.
He would make the patients declare before the deities of his or her Guru and the Almighty that they did not have the means to pay the bills, and provide them with free medical care. Hinduja Hospital continues to fulfill his dream of providing excellent medical care to all sections of society.
