Ramakrishna Mission Seva Pratishthan is a medical institution and hospital at Sarat Bose Road, Kolkata, which functions under the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission. It started in July 1932 as Shishumangal Pratishthan, a maternity and child welfare clinic by Swami Dayanand, a disciple of Sarada Devi. [1][2]

Swami Dayananda (born Vimal) was younger brother of Swami Madhavananda, the ninth President of the Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission (1962–1965).[3] In 1956, the clinic paved way for the present hospital. Today the institution runs a 600-bed general hospital, Ma Sarada School of Nursing, Vivekananda Institute of Medical Sciences, besides mobile health units and community health services for rural areas.
