SATYAM means truth, honesty & upholding of ethical values .We, at Satyam, try to adhere to these principles while discharging our duties. The philosophy behind the creation of Satyam is embodied in the Sanskrit shloka “IDAM NA MUM”, which means” “it all belongs to the Almighty”, It is His idea implanted in us, His creation & his blessings to us & to the people around us. MERA MUJH MEIN KUCHH NAHIN, JO KUCHH HAI SO TERA . The whole SATYAM family gets together each morning at 8’oclock for thanking him & to offer special prayers for the critically ill patients in the hospital.
It was a cold December day in 1994, when our dearest Dr. Saurabh Pasricha, MD. was snatched away from us in a road accident . It was then that Dr. Rajesh Pasricha & Dr. Kumud Pasricha , who were till then working in Mumbai, felt the need to establish a state of the art Neurosurgical & Trauma Centre in this part of the country to provide immediate aid to Head injury & polytrauma patients when element of time becomes a crucial factor & save them from the agony of rushing to far off cities.
Dr. Rajesh Pasricha M.S.,M.Ch. who is the CMD of hospital has held various senior positions as teaching faculty at different Medical colleges . He was senior registrar in Neurosurgery at DMC Ludhiana ,did his MCh. from PGI Chandigarh and moved on to Mumbai as senior clinical assistant at Bombay Hospital. After short stints as a lecturer at Grant Medical College, National Medical College and Seth G.S.

The Hospital was started with the twin motive. Firstly, to provide ultra modern health care of International standards to the people of this region & secondly to provide such services at affordable prices. Till date these motives have been achieved in their own humble ways.
