“Create a global ecosystem where physicians, patients, and community come together with a single goal of excellent and affordable healthcare.”
Today, India is poised to grow into a global leader in a number of fields and sectors and healthcare is no exception. India produces some of the best brains in science, technology, and economics and powers some of the best international companies of the world.

The mission of the hospital underlines commitment to be a provider to the nation’s leadership worldwide, in delivering a robust, trustworthy, and sustainable healthcare ecosystem. It works towards bringing the best professionals and creating the highest value and impact on the country’s growth and progress.
Journey of VishwaRaj
The hospital is the brain child and a dream put to reality by a great visionary Dr. Vishwanath Karad, who fostered a strong belief to provide the best of education to the society today. VishwaRaj Hospital was a major step in accomplishing his visionary philosophy to create a healthcare ecosystem that focuses on science and service. “VishwaRaj Hospital is our step forward in healthcare delivery in India with a singular aim of providing the best quality healthcare in an ecosystem of modern science, traditional wisdom, compassion and humanity,” he says.
Outstanding Infrastructure, Locale, & Facility
Situated on the banks of the river Mula-Mutha, about 12 km from Pune city and on the Pune-Solapur Road, VRH lies on a pristine stretch of land called ‘Rajbaug – the royal gardens’. This location has a special significance of its own, as it represents a promise made to Shri Raj Kapoor, who donated this land with a desire to promote social good in the region.
VishwaRaj is well connected by road and railways to provide excellent care to a wide geography, in and around Pune. The location is a few minutes’ drive from Hadapsar, Pune. The hospital makes sure that the needs of an advanced medical facility in the area are met and also ensures that people do not have to compromise on healthcare standards or face the inconvenience and the risk of travelling too far.
VRH is a 300 bedded multi-speciality tertiary care hospital that is an initiative of MAEER’s MIT Group of Institutions, Pune; with focus on providing quality healthcare to the Pune region. VishwaRaj is equipped with leading medical technology, comfortable stay options, a wide-spread network of ambulances, and innumerable options to create the best healthcare experience and outcomes, both within its premises as well as at the patient’s home.
The hospital’s patient-centric approach allows it to create the best possible amalgamation of medical, surgical, rehabilitative, and supportive treatments. Its focus has always been on continuous quality escalation, which has led to its growth each day and keeping pace with international standards of medical care, while staying human in our delivery of care.
It brings a difference in attitude towards healthcare for the patients’ benefit. VRH believes and lives it each day to not only cure sickness, but to prevent it and promote health, happiness, and peace.
The hospital has 65-bedded ICU and 10 operation theatres built on a total of 3,00,000 square feet to ensure dedicated patient care. Besides the core medical and surgical areas of VRH, the facility also provides several support services, rehab services, and value-added services to patients and families. Some services like the outdoor yoga and physio center, nature walks, and music therapy services that they offer are truly unique.
Thought Leader Ship of VRH
Dr. Aditi Karad is the true reflection of a soul that believes in greater humanitarian values. With the intent of delivering qualitative yet affordable medical facilities to the masses, she dreamt to enter into the medical field. Her sheer dedication and commitment towards this noble goal led towards the inception of VishwaRaj Hospital. Today, Dr. Aditi is successfully running this super specialty hospital in the capacity of Executive Director.
She believes, in India, there is a huge gap between people’s demand for quality healthcare & accessible availability of such facilities. ‘And if a healthcare solution is not affordable to all then it is not a solution at all.’ This belief inspires Dr. Aditi to work towards affordable healthcare facilities.

Its experienced team offers round the clock individualized treatment to patients through cardiac diagnosis, treatment, research, and cardiac rehabilitation & patient education at an affordable cost.

Over Achieving in the Field of Healthcare Education
“India has the largest population in the world with 1.3 Billion people and in proportion to our population the healthcare needs of our country are also huge,” says Dr. Aditi. “We all know Medical education is quite lengthy and expensive, because of which some bright & deserving students cannot access good quality medical education,” she says. This inspired VishwaRaj Hospital to extend a helping hand to students, who truly understand the healthcare needs of society, but are financially underprivileged and therefore cannot pursue medical education. With this goal, VishwaRaj Hospital has launched the Dr. Vishwanath Karad Scholarship Award, an award offering full financial support and mentorship to students aspiring of a glorious career in the medical field. This is its contribution to create and dedicate competent and compassionate doctors to our society.
