Bhaktivedanta Hospital Helping Patients to Maintain Health Through New Media Studio
By ISKCON News   |  Mar 18, 2024

Anuttama Dasa, ISKCON’s Global Communications Minister and GBC member, recently toured the Bhaktivedanta Hospital and Research Center, a multi-specialty tertiary care hospital located in Mumbai, India, across the street from the ISKCON Mira Road Temple. People come from all over the world to receive treatment here because of the emphasis on the spiritual, physical, and mental well-being of the patient. Beginning as the Bhaktivedanta Polyclinic in 1993 and later the expanded Bhaktivedanta Hospital and Research Center in 1998, it is now regarded as one of the most state-of-the-art medical and research facilities in all of India. A typical day will welcome over 2,500 visitors, while the lobby will see an average of 700 patients daily.

In addition to its first-class treatment, which includes dozens of specialties, the hospital is committed to educating thousands on how to prevent disease and disability while maintaining a healthy body through proper exercise, sleep, and eating. Anuttama would see this first hand during his visit to the complex as the facility continues to expand, offering more and more services and specialties to the residents of Mumbai and beyond.  One of the most recent additions is the video production studio.

On his way to the auditorium and classrooms where they host meetings and train new employees, Anuttama came across the beautiful studio where a medical host was preparing to interview a sleep expert for an upcoming video. Over 100 educational videos have been produced by the media production team at the hospital. “So they’re not only working wonderfully to help people regain their health, but they’re also working to help ensure people maintain their health,” said Anuttama, “A wonderful service they’re doing for ISKCON devotees and, of course, for the whole population in Mumbai.” 

In addition to the media studio, the hospital has continued to expand other areas like the ICU, pharmacy facilities, water treatment, sterilization, as well as offering more patient rooms.

You can visit the hospital’s website to see all the resources available, follow them on Facebook, or watch some of the amazing videos collected on their YouTube channel.
