In March 2004, Lucknow Development Authority allotted two acres of land to Foundation in the institutional area of posse locality of Gomti Nagar. A new hospital complex of 100 beds was built with public and bank support and was inaugurated by then the President of Republic of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on March 03, 2006. The main objective of this hospital is to provide cost effective international standard of heart care to a wider section of society especially needy and poor, in addition, to create awareness among the people with regard to genesis and prevention of heart diseases.
Despite wide awareness and preventive measures, heart diseases in India have become a major health problem. In recent time, progressive changes in the social fabric, rapid urbanization leading to increased stress both mental and physical at work place as well as at home, change in life style, lack of physical exercise, excessive intake of fatty food, have increased manifold the incidence of heart diseases, hypertension and diabetes. Approximately 60 million people are suffering from heart diseases and blood pressure and more than 60 % of them are in their productive age group i.e. between 40-55 years.
