The acceptance of the service by the community inspired the practitioner to conceptualize an Ayurvedic educational institiution which can intensify the provision of quality health care through a cluster of professionals. The dream of Dr Prashant, hinged on the promulgation of the science of Ayurveda which he has mastered, sustained by the recommendations of the Atreya Charitable Trust with Shri Shivruddriah as its fount, converged to the establishment of the Atreya Ayurveda Medical College, Hospital and Research Centre in 2006 which serves till then as a nucleus to nurture excellence in all aspects of health care.
