My dream of providing quality treatment and care of the highest standards has now been realised. Today, about 400 organisations have joined hands with Jayadeva Hospital for extending medical services to the poor,” he said.

Continuing, Dr. Manjunath said: “A Hospital, just like a temple, is a holy place as it treats patients and saves their lives. More than the terms and conditions, humanity should be the first priority for Hospitals. It is for this reason that Jayadeva Hospital adopted the policy of ‘treatment first, payment next.’ This policy should continue for ever.”
