Mahavir Arogya Sansthan is a charitable, philanthropic, state-of-the-art organisation which was founded by Acharya Kishore Kunal, IPS(Retd.). He is the Secretary of Mahavir Sansthan Nyass Samittee and a great visionary to serve the middle, poor and weaker strata of society. With the rising cost of medical and surgical treatment and medicines, a particular section of people couldn’t get the super-speciality treatment for its exorbitant price. Mahavir Arogya Sansthan besides treating the routine case under the care of specialist is providing super-speciality treatment in almost all discipline of medical service at an affordable price. All the facilities of investigation, like Pathology, X-ray, CT Scan, Ultrasonography, etc., exist under one roof, and the patient is saved from running from pillar to post.
The motto of the Sansthan is to treat all patients irrespective of their caste, creed, religion and financial status. Money or no money, you are taken care of, diagnosed and treated at the Sansthan. We promise never to let your financial contraints handicap your health and wellbeing. Our courteous staff and doctors treat each patient with warmth. The Sansthan is a unique experiment which shows how religion can be successfully amalgamated with a social cause and community wellbeing.
If every religious paradigm follows the footsteps of Acharya Kishore Kunal, then we would achieve the India of our dreams. I wish to finish on a happy and optimistic note and pray that Lord Hanuman blesses all our patients, staff, doctors and well-wishers.
Your humble Director, who is always at your service
Dr SC Mishra (IAS Retd.)
