The three-storeyed hospital was constructed at the cost of Rs. three crores and was financed by the State Bank of India.


"Being a pediatrician, I've been looking only after children. I felt the need to make something very exclusive for children where they will not only be treated but when they come, they feel as if they are not visiting a hospital but they feel as if it is their home. They don't feel scared of the injection, the environment, they feel happy to see that this is not a hospital where one will get scared of injection," Das said.
