Dr. Ashok K. Patel (1957-2020)
Dr. Ashok was a practicing dentist in USA since 1988. He had offices in Waltham, Massachusetts, and Nashua, New Hampshire. He is the Founding Trustee of Kantilal J Patel Charitable Trust and Richard Condorelli Memorial Foundation (USA).
Vanbandhu Arogya Dham was conceived by Dr. Patel in 2008 when he had unexpectedly inherited Mr. Condorelli’s savings upon his sudden death from acute kidney failure. The Richard Condorelli Memorial Foundation was registered in his memory, in the state of Massachusetts, to carry out philanthropically inclined activities honoring Mr. Condorelli.
Destiny brought Dr. Patel in the tribal district of Dang, India that had severe shortage of coordinated healthcare. Mr. Condorelli’s gift, Honorable Prime Minister, Shree Narendra Modiji’s personal interest and encouragement, Dr. Patel’s father, Shree Kantilal Patel’s blessings, Dr. Kiran Patel’s (a Cardiologist in Tampa, Florida, USA) generous financial donation along with the contributions of many other likeminded, kind hearted friends and relatives, made the facility possible. For Dr. Patel, the facility is a bridge between Boston, USA’s world class healthcare system and Dang, India’s lack of coordinated healthcare. The facility is named as Dr. Kiran C Patel Multi-Specialty Hospital. Dr. Patel’s goal was to develop the facility into a model facility that can be implemented in several needy tribal areas of India.
