Dr. Sita Bhateja and her lifelong commitment towards the service of others informs the philosophy behind Giving Back. Inspired by Marie Curie’s life and contributions, Dr. Bhateja as a young girl decided to help her community in every way possible. This resulted in her becoming one of the top gynecologists in the city of Bangalore. In 1965, she started a nursing home and in 1969, the charitable arm of the Dr (Mrs) Sita Bhateja Nursing Home was also established. Philanthropy and a love for medicine ran in the family, as a few decades later, her son Dr. Arvind Bhateja expanded the scope of the hospital by introducing multiple specialities in neuro and spine surgery, orthopaedics, intensive care, internal medicine, urology, plastic surgery and maxillofacial surgery.
