In addition to the hospitals in Mathura and Agra, we are continuously striving to deliver the best healthcare to the people through our outreach programmes in other parts of western Uttar Pradesh. Soon, we will have a tertiary-care hospital and run medical outreach programme for the communities residing in eastern Uttar Pradesh.”
