For long private health care was restricted to General Practitioners and small Nursing Homes. Missionaries and few others with Missionary zeal ran larger private institutions in health care. State of the art institutions of health care were established in private by large industrial houses that catered to mainly their township and partly as charitable institutions by way philanthropic activities. Establishment of the Bangalore Hospital was a new concept and experiment of a different kind. We could convince a number of consultants who could have established their own small nursing homes, that we need each other’s support for proper care of our patients and we can put all our nursing home concepts together into a larger hospital set up. Surprisingly it worked. Most of them were established consultants and were actually aware of the need for a collective effort for proper care of their own patients. The Bangalore Hospital is a Corporate venture with Co-operative spirit, fully owned by the Doctors, their friends, relatives and patients. The first Hospital to be owned by doctors, run by doctors and for their patients. Today it is a success story and worth emulating. Our objective is to provide speciality care at a reasonable cost, practice ethical medicine and ensure transparency at all levels.
