Our Story So Far…
Dr. Mehta’s Medical Trust – CSR wing of Dr. Mehta’s Hospitals began its humble roots in the year 1997. Our Founder, Dr. Savitha Ben Mehta dedicated her practice towards service of the underprivileged and set up the Dr. Mehta’s Medical Trust to be a source of relief for our not-so-privileged friends in receiving quality Healthcare at Dr. Mehta’s Hospitals. Since, we have grown manifold with the help of our ever supportive donors and now reach out to any Individual who requires Healthcare attention in the City of Chennai.
Dr.Mehta’s with our deep focus on ensuring that our communities are safe has consistently run a combination of programs across multiple sectors of our community including vulnerable and underprivileged members of the community and at risk consumers. Our Trust since 1997 has focused significantly on educational, diagnostic as well as therapeutic programs to ensure that members of our communities both local and regional are safe and are provided access to health education programs to ensure that they themselves take ownership of their own health as well as diagnostics and therapy to ensure that those who are perhaps vulnerable and at risk have the capacity to access healthcare practices that are in line with our expertise and commitment. We regularly partner with leading organizations, NGOs and Corporates including WHO, UNICEF and The Gates Foundation to ensure that our campaigns are focused around large community outcomes to ensure that safety and health is managed beyond our footprint, beyond our specific focused interventions. Dr.Mehta’s also provides a leadership role for many of the institutions in South India including helping co-ordinate many of the activities for organizations like the Association of Healthcare Providers of India (AHPI) and the Consortium of Accredited Healthcare Organizations (CAHO). Dr.Mehta’s typically looks for partners from within the communities as well as sponsors to assist programs so that we are able to ensure that we impact the appropriate and the most needy folks across these communities as well as ensure that our clinical expertise is shared across more members in each community to ensure that our community outcome is maximized.
