Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre was founded in the early 1970's by philanthropist Seth Lokoomal Chanrai. Dr. Shantilal J. Mehta, the doyen of the medical profession in India, was the one who translated Seth Lokoomal Chanrai's vision into reality. Jaslok Hospital is located at Dr. G. Deshmukh Marg., Peddar Road, South Mumbai, overlooking the Arabian Sea. The name Jaslok was derived from the names of Seth Lokoomal and his wife, Smt. Jasotibai.
