Parmanand Deepchand Hinduja (1901-1971)
Paramanand Deepchand Hinduja was the Founder of the Hinduja Group and the Hinduja Foundation. He believed from his early childhood that health and education were the fundamental rights of every person.
This belief led him to establish the National Health and Education Society in 1954. Paramanand Deepchand Hinduja would visit the hospital devotedly every day to meet the patients, enquire about their needs and ensure that they were comfortable and received adequate treatment. He would pay particular attention to the poor and the needy. His method of screening patients to qualify for free treatment was quite simple. He would make the patients declare before the deities of his or her Guru and the Almighty that they did not have the means to pay the bills, and provide them with free medical care.
Hinduja Hospital continues to fulfill his dream of providing world-class medical care to all sections of society.
Lalita Girdhar Hinduja (1932-1992)
Smt.Lalita Girdhar Hinduja was the wife of Shri Late Girdhar Hinduja, the eldest son of Shri Paramand Hinduja. Widowed at an early age, she was encouraged by her father-in-law to step out of the house and offer her services to the Hospital. Following in his footsteps, Lalitaji served the Hospital for thirty years.
During her time, the institution grew from strength to strength. She would spend her entire day from morning to evening in the hospital, personally visiting and looking after the patients, inspecting the quality of medical care, administering various aspects of hospital management and constantly devising ways to match the standards of the hospital with those available in the West.
Her simplicity and affectionate disposition, attention to detail and compassion for the staff and simplicity ensured that the Hinduja Hospital operated like a family with a strong sense of belonging, among all medical and non-medical personnel. Even today, the staff remembers her with affection and respect.
She remains the torchbearer of the hospital.
