We have been a common destination for thousands of families in Calcutta and in the Eastern Region in search of top-of-the-line medical attention for four generations, spanning sixty years.
Today, Woodlands Multispeciality Hospital has added more disciplines, keeping in mind growing needs of patients. Popularity of Clinics run by the Hospital mirrors the trust of patients and their families.
Patient care remains core to the fundamental philosophy of the Hospital. We sincerely believe "Whenever you need care" we are there to serve you
History of Woodlands : Half a century ago, the idea of privately run Nursing Home was envisaged in Kolkata and several such were opened, the best known being "Riordans" and the "Elgin"; unfortunately both were housed in rented buildings not really suitable for this purpose. When they were eventually taken over by the East India Clinic, it was realized that they were quite inadequate for the requirements of modern medical care and that a new building was essential.
A considerable period was taken up in negotiating and inspecting various sites. Eventually a fine open site was secured in Alipore, being a part of the land owned by the Maharaja of Cooch Behar, on which stood a large house occupied by him known as "Woodlands Palace ", hence the name of the present Hospital.
On January 8th 1958, Dr. B.C. Roy, the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, himself a distinguised doctor, laid the foundation stone and building really commenced. From August 17th 1959, the new nursing home was officially "open" the first three patients being admitted on the 18th, the first operation being performed, and the first two babies born, on the next day.
