Nearly five decades ago Charutar Arogya Mandal was established as a venture of hope.

The Mandal was founded by the late Dr. H. M. Patel, former Union Home and Finance Minster, whose dream was to offer comprehensive, compassionate health care to everyone and anyone who needed it.

The Charutar Arogya Mandal was formed in 1972 as a non-profit Trust and a Society; to work in the area of health care and education. Dr. Patel's legacy, Solace for the Suffering, drives all our efforts in health care and education activities. The Trust’s main objective, as enshrined in its Constitution, is to make health care facilities accessible and affordable to the people of Gujarat.

The Institutions of the Mandal are located in Karamsad, the Karmboomi of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, “Iron Man of India”.

Spread over a sprawling green campus of 100 acres, the Trust’s activities are focused on the following four areas and guided by their respective Boards of Management in Education, Patient care, Research and Public health.

The Government of Gujarat has approved our Private University status and notified our Trust to commence a State Private University named “BHAIKAKA UNIVERSITY’’ under the State Private University Act 2009.
