History[edit]

In 1978, Shri Kirtilal Manilal Mehta—a diamond merchant fondly known as Bapaji, who in 1956 founded the Antwerp-based diamond company Gembel NV—established the Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta Medical Trust in memory of his late wife, Smt. Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta. The trust has been managed, controlled, and administered by Mehta family members Prabodh Kirtilal Mehta, Rashmi Mehta, and Chetan Prabodh Mehta.

In 1997, the trust established Lilavati Hospital, with 314 beds, 12 operating theaters, 300 consultants, intensive care units (ICUs), and 1,800 staff members to provide care for 300 in-patients and 1,500 out-patients daily.[4]

Shri Kirtilal Manilal Mehta[edit]

Shri Kirtilal Manilal Mehta was born on 7 February 1907 in the city of Palanpur, India. After losing his father at the early age of 12, he joined his family business in Rangoon, Burma. Besides handling his family business, he launched another business segment of Diamond in Mumbai, a financial capital of India. Mumbai is where he also started Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta Medical Trust. It was his wife Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta's dream to open a medical facility offering a high standard medical treatment at affordable prices. She believed in equality of education and treatment, regardless of caste, creed, and income group. She died in 1964, leaving her esteemed presence in the lives of the people who knew her and knew that she believed in serving the public good.
