With an aim to provide healthcare at subsidised rates, Thane’s Jupiter Hospital launched 'Jupiter Charitable Institute' (JCI) which was inaugurated by Thane’s guardian minister Eknath Shinde and Thane’s municipal commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal. 

Along with this, an announcement was made regarding new JCI OPD which will be open on Saturdays and 3:00 pm onwards, doctors across all specialities will be available at the Out Patient Department (OPD). Here, doctors will charge only ₹100 fees for any type of consultation and investigation advised will be subsidised by 35 per cent and any procedure/surgery advised by the doctor will be subsidised by 40 per cent.


We not only provide subsidised OPD consultation but we also commit treating patients by providing assistance in investigations and treatment as well. Usually, they don’t go to government hospitals and don't opt for the corporate hospital as it is not affordable. Any patient who signs a form stating his inability to afford full cost health care will be eligible for subsidy in JCI,” Dr. Ankit Thakker, executive director at Jupiter Hospital.

In order to avail this service, one will have to sign self-declaration form that will state that the patient who is seeking subsidised treatment in the JCI cannot afford the treatment costs otherwise and no documentation is required further.


Access to quality healthcare cannot be achieved by just reducing costs. We need to ensure that the patient gets end-to-end treatment and complete care. The Jupiter Charitable Institute is a unique program and a noble initiative that requires a big heart,” Eknath Shinde, Guardian Minister.
