Dr. Ashok was a practicing dentist in USA from 1988 till 2020. He has offices in Waltham, Massachusetts, and Nashua, New Hampshire. He was the Founding Trustee of Richard Condorelli Memorial Foundation (USA) and Kantilal J Patel Charitable Trust (India). The project to build a world-class healthcare facility was conceived by Dr. Patel in 2008 when he had unexpectedly inherited Mr. Condorelli’s savings upon his sudden death from acute kidney failure. The foundation was registered in his memory, in the state of Massachusetts, to carry out philanthropically inclined activities honoring Mr. Condorelli. Destiny brought Dr. Patel to the tribal district of Dang, India which had a severe shortage of coordinated healthcare. Mr. Condorelli’s gift, Honorable Prime Minister, Shree Narendra Modiji’s personal interest and encouragement, Dr. Patel’s father, Shree Kantilal Patel’s blessings, Dr. Kiran Patel’s (a Cardiologist in Tampa, Florida, USA) generous financial donation along with the contributions of many other likeminded, kind-hearted friends and relatives, made the facility possible. For Dr. Patel, the facility is a bridge between Boston, the USA’s world-class healthcare system, and Dang, India’s lack of coordinated healthcare. The facility is named Dr. Kiran C Patel Multi-Specialty Hospital. Dr. Patel’s goal was to develop the facility into a model facility that can be implemented in several needy tribal areas of India.
