The Rural Medical Services (RMS) program began in 1999 as a mobile medical unit that traveled throughout the remote impoverished villagers of northeast India. A community medicine doctor, Dr. Hari Babu, led this team and has treated more than 130,000 patients who have suffered from various illnesses and diseases since that time.
Today, RMS is managed by the staff at Shanti Bhavan Medical Center. The team travels three days a week to the outer remote impoverished villagers and helps meet the medical needs of impoverished individuals and families. Patients who are in critical need are brought to the hospital for immediate care.
The COVID-19 pandemic is devastating communities across India. We are the only modern hospital available to many of the people we serve.
