"Is this a hospital?"­ is the first thought that enters the mind of many of our visitors.

J. Watumull Global Hospital and Research Centre is a hospital, albeit with a difference. The brain child of an industrialist, a surgeon and a spiritual leader, Global Hospital, as it is popularly called, is a centre for holistic healthcare. It combines the best that modern medicine has to offer with complementary medicine systems like Ayurveda, homeopathy, magnet therapy, yoga and so on.


How did Global Hospital come into existence?

In 1989, eminent head and neck cancer surgeon from Mumbai, Dr Ashok Mehta visited the Brahma Kumaris in Mount Abu. His positive experience led him to believe that the Brahma Kumaris represented a like-minded group of people he could partner to implement his vision of a model hospital focusing on holistic healthcare. The project was adopted by our founder mentors, Khuba Watumull and Gulab Watumull of Mumbai and Hawaii (U.S.A.) respectively, and named J Watumull Global Hospital & Research Centre, in memory of their late father. BK Nirwair, officer-in-charge of the Brahma Kumaris international headquarters at Mount Abu was appointed managing trustee of the hospitals’ governing board, the Global Hospital & Research Centre trust.

Serving the community

Our founder trustees envisaged that establishing a multi-disciplinary secondary care hospital at Mount Abu would help bridge a yawning gap in health services in district Sirohi, Rajasthan. At the time, four hospitals with a combined bed strength of 457 served the district's roughly 700,000 strong population. It therefore comes as no surprise that besides offering medical services through out-patient clinics and hospitalisation, the hospital has since then, expanded its operations to focus on community outreach programmes, medical research, vocational education in paramedical streams and the promotion of health awareness.
