The Legacy

Founded in 1933, Dr.Mehta’s has grown into one of the leading healthcare institutions in India. The humble roots started as a small nursing home in the locality of Sowcarpet in Madras, currently known as Chennai in South India. Dr.Anantrai J Mehta, a surgeon had a vision to setup an institution that was open to all members of the community that focused on consumer safety, affordability and affection. Joined by his wife Dr.Savitha Ben Mehta, a Gynecologist trained by leading British and Indian Gynecologists in 1940, the couple relocated to the more central location of Chetpet in Chennai and expanded the facility to a Multi-specialty Surgical and Birthing unit in 1955. Dr.Mehta’s Nursing Home has been fondly remembered and respected as a pillar of Chennai’s healthcare and the reason why we are commonly known as the Medical Capital of India. With a deep focus on community, consumer and clinical outcomes, Dr.Mehta’s has helped introduce generations of new beginnings into many vibrant families across India. We have helped deliver over 500,000 babies successfully and family smiles through our facilities.
