The N.M. Wadia Institute of Cardiology was established as a Public Charitable Trust in 1966; The then Chairman of N.M. Wadia Charities of Bombay, - late Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy VI Bart having given encouragement and support for the purpose of starting a hospital devoted to diseases of the heart. It was also through the generosity and co-operation of late Lady Hirabai Cowasji Jehangir and late Dr. E.H. Coyaji, that the Jehangir Medical Center initially provided us with a space to start our activities and later in 1972, leased land on their campus, where the existing Institute stands. The affairs of the Institute are managed by a Board of Trustees.
 
 
The N. M. Wadia Institute of Cardiology was the first non-government sector hospital in India to start a Coronary Care Unit and the first in Poona to pioneer cardiac Catherterisation and Angiography. Angioplasty, Stenting, open heart surgery and closed heart surgery which are now all routine activities. Amongst many of the International known doctors and surgeons who have visited and operated at the Institute are Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, Christopher Lincoln, Egbert Boss, Christian Barnard, Professor Phillip Alison, E. Jansen and G. Lee.
 
 


The present facilities include a state of the art Siemens Axiom Artis
dFC flat panel with clear FD technology, two modern Operation Theatres solely devoted to cardiac surgery, and the very latest equipment for non invasive cardiac investigations. The Institute also caters to the underprivileged and less fortunate members of society by subsidising hospitalisation, investigations and free Out Patient facilities. Its charitable activity is equivalent to approximately 25 % of its annual income. The Institute has a social worker department which screens and manages funds for needy patients. The Institute is recognised by the National Board of Examination, New Delhi, for the post doctoral Diploma in Cardiology (DNB Cardiology), the first Institute in Poona and third in Maharashtra State. The Institute has also been accredited by the Maharashtra Medical Council for conducting Continuous Medical Education  as well as empanelled by CGHS, State Government, PMC, BSNL, and other Government  Bodies.

We are fortunate in having a dedicated medical and administrative team who have more than contributed to whatever measures of success we have achieved. Our activities are only possible because of the generous donations we receive from grateful patients, friends, business houses and other charitable trusts.
