As a little girl, Amma dreamed of building a hospital where poor people could have access to high-quality healthcare in an atmosphere of love and compassion. In 1998, she built it.

“May each of our hospitals be an abode of service to humankind and a place of solace for the sick. While bodily health is no doubt important, internal health involves cultivating a sharing and caring attitude. May our institutions be both hospital and temple, where external and internal healing is provided.”

- Amma


Why it Matters

Sustainable development and health are interconnected.

When primary health needs are met in environmentally safe communities, humans are able to live productive lives in harmony with nature.  Numerous studies by the UN and WHO demonstrate that access to healthcare coupled with economic programming support the steady growth of communities.
We recognize these goals can only be achieved when all humans have access to healthcare that aims to prevent and treat diseases. To support the worldwide effort to improve health outcomes for all populations, Amrita hospitals, health camps, and public health initiatives strive to give world class healthcare to everyone equally.
