The history of the hospital goes back to 2006 when the Reliance foundation took over the Hurkisondoss Nurrotumdas Hospital, which was not doing well and started the construction work in 2011. Mrs. Nita Ambani, the Chairperson of the foundation was in the overall supervision of the construction and inception of the hospital. The hospital is founded with a good intention of helping the poor and needy. To fulfill this aim 10% of the 348 beds in the hospital are provided free service and 10% at a reduced rate. Each doctor is expected to provide fixed hours of free service at OPD and Surgical units, which enables the poor people to get the best medical facility.

The hospital covers many wings of the medical science and special importance is given to neonatal care and maternity wing.
Finally the hospital is all set to redefine the medical service in India, especially to the poor who cannot afford the costly treatment elsewhere. Though the services are available to every patient, people in and around Mumbai will be benefitted more due to proximity.
