Nirali Memorial Medical Trust (NMMT), established by A.M. Naik, Group Chairman of Larsen & Toubro, will set up a Multispecialty Hospital at Navsari in Gujarat. The Multispecialty Hospital will be operated and managed by Apollo Hospitals Group. The agreement to this effect was signed by Naik and Dr. Prathap C. Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group.
Named in the memory of Nirali, granddaughter of Naik who passed away due to cancer at the age of two, NMMT was set up by Mr Naik and family to help needy patients without access to quality medical treatment.

NMMT will build the infrastructure, install the medical equipment and appoint the qualified doctors and paramedical staff to run the hospital. Apollo Hospitals Group will offer their medical expertise and facilitate operations and maintenance of the hospital.
