Kasturba Hospital, Manipal


Dr. Tonse Madhav Ananth Pai, (April 30, 1898 - May 29, 1979), a doctor, educationist, banker and philanthropist, started a private, self-financing medical college in India offering MBBS course and established the Kasturba Medical College (KMC), Manipal in 1953. The associated teaching hospital at Manipal, Kasturba Hospital was a 150 bedded medical centre opened in 1961 on the barren hilltop of Manipal.

Dr. Pai's dream was laughed at by his peers, who wondered how many people would come to this remote, isolated arid place for treatment! Today, Kasturba Hospital has emerged as a premier healthcare institution providing quality tertiary care to domestic and international patients. Kasturba Hospital (KH), with 2032 beds, is one of the largest private health care centres in India. It is the apex teaching hospital attached to Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, and an associate hospital of the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), consultative management by Manipal Health Enterprises Pvt.

It is the largest Hospital in India and the first Medical College Hospital in Karnataka to be accredited by the prestigious National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare providers (NABH) in 2009. Achieving accreditation by AAHRPP (Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs) is an added feather in the Hospital's cap.
