The Hospital provides excellent patient care facilities to all free of cost. Even Heart Surgeries like CABG, Valve replacement and Kidney transplantation are done entirely free of cost in the hospital.
The Super Specialty Hospital (Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences) was setup at Prasanthi Gram (about 9 kms. from Prasanthi Nilayam) under the auspices of the Sri Sathya Sai Medical Trust in the year 1991 to demonstrate that medical care of the highest quality even in highly specialized fields like Cardiology, Urology, Nephrology, Ophthalmology etc can be provided totally free of cost.
The Super-Specialty hospital acts as a nucleus for the extension of primary health care at village levels in the surrounding areas. Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital at Prasanthi Nilayam and Sri Sathya Sai Hospital at Whitefield, Bangalore extend the secondary health care and finally the Super-Specialty Hospital acts as the tertiary link in the chain of total health care.
