Bhoomi Pooja was conducted for a new Wellness and Fitness Centre on the campus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Prasanthigram, on 18 03 2015, Wednesday. The Bhoomi Pooja was conducted in the presence of the Trustees of Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Sri K Chakravarthy and Sri R J Rathanakar, Secretary of SSSCT, Sri G S R C V Prasada Rao and Director, SSSIHMS, Dr Choudary Voleti.
The centre will have a total built up area of around 25,000 sq feet and will have indoor sports facilities ranging from gymnasium, badminton courts, table tennis among others. The centre will also have an outdoor basketball court, volleyball courts and a jogging track.
The centre is being supported by an Australian devotee and the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust.
Speaking on the occasion Dr Voleti said that the wellness centre was a gift from Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba to the staff and their family members. “Our staff work day and night to provide care to patients, therefore it is imperative that the staff and their family members have facilities to keep themselves healthy and fit,” he said.
The wellness centre would take around 6 months to get completed.
