The health initiatives and healthcare projects of The Satsang Foundation have been conceptualized by Sri M to provide free and quality preventive and curative healthcare through holistic and comprehensive treatments.
Satsang Swasthya Kendra
Satsang Swaasthya Kendra was set up in 2013 at Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh, to provide free healthcare programs and treatments to students, staff and families of the children of The Satsang Vidyalaya and local Sugali tribal settlements of nearby 10 villages.
Ensure physical, mental, social, and spiritual well being and create harmony between environment and people by providing universal access to equitable, affordable, acceptable, available & quality preventive and curative health care services in an accountable manner in accordance with the needs of the community.
The clinical approach is holistic and integrates Modern Systems of Medicine and Indian System of Medicine (Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, and Siddha).
The Kendra aims to address various social determinants of health viz., water supply, hygiene, sanitation, safe waste disposal, nutrition, education, etc., through harmonized activities. In addition to this, it stresses on developing a social movement, as an integral part of community development, through intersectoral co-ordination and organized community effort, participation, equity and ownership.

Swaasthya Hospital – Upcoming Project
Sri M’s vision of providing affordable and timely secondary and holistic healthcare to rural India is taking shape in Madanapalle. Although the Satsang Swasthya Kendra (SSK) has been servicing more than 12000 out-patients annually, there is a much felt need for a free hospital providing emergency and short-term care. The Swaasthya Hospital, which is envisaged to be a 50-bed healthcare centre with a scope to expand up to 100 beds is picking up momentum.
The Swaasthya Hospital aims to provide timely treatment to those in need within the ‘Golden Hour’, where everything from critical care to COVID care can be attended to. With all critical services from emergency services and two fully equipped operation theatres to ICU under one roof, the Hospital will be a beacon of hope and save many lives.
