The National Heart Institute (NHI) is an integral part of the foundation's research and clinical care delivery programmers and was established in 1981.
The All India Heart Foundation (AIHF) can proudly claim to be one of the first societies of its kind to be founded in Asia. It was formed by a group of physicians (led by Dr. S. Padmavati) and industrialists (Late Mr. Ashok Jain of Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd) at the inspiration of the doyen of modern cardiology, the late Dr. Paul Dudley White and registered as a charitable society in 1962. Its membership is open not only to specialists in cardiology but also to all doctors and laymen.
National Heart Institute, brain child of doyenne of cardiology in India, Dr. S. Padmavati, was inaugurated in 1981 by the Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, as the Clinical Research and Medical Care Delivery wing of All India Heart Foundation, with the aim of providing State-of-art Modern Cardiac Care to the financially impoverished section of society. It was intended to be a self-sufficient facility and therefore it was decided that people with paying capacity should also be taken up and the surplus generated from them be channelized for the treatment of the poor.
