The Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre is one of the first-born tertiary care, multi-specialty trust hospitals of the nation. In the late 60s, when the establishment of big private hospitals was not common, the institution was intellectualized and endowed to the city of Mumbai by Seth Lokoomal Chanrai. Seth Chanrai came from a family of humanitarians who had businesses in many nations. The family had already buttressed many small and large ventures. Seth Lokoomal entrusted Dr. Shantilal Mehta the task of founding an ultra-modern centrally located medical centre where folks of all races and creeds could get the benefits of advanced health care. Jaslok Hospital is located at Dr. G Deshmukh Marg., Peddar Road which is a key artery of South Mumbai and overlooking the Arabian Sea.
The name Jaslok was derived from the names of Seth Lokoomal & his wife Smt. Jasotibai. Seth Chanrai's vision was applied and brought to realism basically by his brother-in- law i.e. Dada Mathradas Assomull. The hospital was inaugurated on 6th July 1973 by the former Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi. Jaslok Hospital is a private, full-fledged multi-speciality hospital with 376 beds of which 67 are ICU beds. The number of consultants has augmented from the initial 50 to around 253 with 124 fully trained resident doctors and having department of nursing school with 495 qualified nurses & 60 students at any given time. It has propelled research activities in numerous fields in collaboration with other organizations in India & abroad. More prominently, the hospital has progressed into a tertiary referral centre for providing advanced, complex problems in addition to a training institution. It entices patients not only from Mumbai but all portions of Maharashtra, and other states and abroad. Prominent citizens from all over the nation have availed of the advanced facilities at the Jaslok Hospital.
