Prashant Mehta and Rajesh Mehta, the hospital's current leaders, recall learning about their family's humanitarian work and involvement in Lilavati Hospital when they were still quite young. They recall the discussions over the construction of the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai, which sparked their interest in the medical field.
Over the years, Prashant Mehta and Rajesh Mehta have worked relentlessly towards gaining in-depth and precise knowledge along with the technical experience that one requires to climb the ladder to lead a hospital. The hard work of Prashant Mehta during the recent Covid-19 pandemic proved to be a turning point in his life as he provided vaccines to millions working with a team 24/7 for almost 18 months.
During the epidemic, Prashant Mehta was on the frontline, overseeing one of India's biggest immunisation campaigns while also treating patients who had been infected with the coronavirus and other life-threatening illnesses. According to Prashant Mehta, "despite the shortage of doctors and nurses amidst all the restrictions, it was the grace of the Almighty that allowed us to do our best for the public."
While Lilavati Hospital, GIFT City has been started under the direction of Kishor Mehta and Charu Mehta, the sons Prashant Mehta and Rajesh Mehta, committed to the incorporation of the same passion, vision, and put their best foot forward for the project. "By building Lilavati Hospital in GIFT City, we hope to transform healthcare and significantly raise its standard of care. As we work toward achieving this, we intend to do so in accordance with the vision of our founder trustee, Kirtilal Mehta, which calls for ensuring access to healthcare for all people at an accessible and reasonable cost, regardless of caste, creed, or economic circumstance. Not only are we working towards providing basic facilities, but also ensuring that we enable access to the latest healthcare procedures and technologies in partnership with our international hospital partners and doctors," said Rajesh Mehta, when asked about the latest development he and Prashant Mehta are working on at the moment.
