SRMS IMS, Bareilly celebrated its 17th Foundation Day on 4 July in a memorable ceremony in the presence of leading names from the healthcare industry. It marked the day in 2002 when the healthcare facility, offering the best possible services to people in the region, came into being. Set up by Shri Dev Murti ji in the memory of veteran freedom fighter, parliamentarian, and inspiring soul of the Trust Late Shri Ram Murti ji, the institute carries forward the vision of making quality healthcare available to everyone.
In the course of 17 years, the hospital has grown to over a 950-bed facility and has added the latest in technology in medical care and diagnostics. The medical college too has gone from strength to strength and now offers post graduate medical programs to over 76 students in more than 21 disciplines. In the lead up to the Foundation Day, SRMS IMS had unveiled several schemes and programs to offer superior medical services to patients at nominal rates. The ceremony on the day was a fitting and thoughtful finale to the proceedings. Continuing with its year-on-year performance, SRMS IMS has secured 32nd position among Medical Colleges in India.
The celebrations began in the packed auditorium with the traditional lighting of the lamp. The dignitaries garlanded the image of Goddess Saraswati and sought her blessings.

With Shri Dev Murti ji (Chairman, SRMS Trust) and Mr. Aditya Murti (Secretary, SRMS Trust) present on the dais, there was enough inspiration for everyone involved with SRMS IMS to continue to strive to achieve future goals.
Dr. Shyam Bihari Gupta (Principal and HOD, SRMS IMS) then motivated the gathering with his welcome address and urged the students to do their best for the people of the country in need of quality healthcare.
