About Woodlands
Woodlands Hospital is as old as India herself. Ever since its conception, Woodlands Hospital have nursed a dream. A dream of becoming one of the leading healthcare centres of free India by providing global standards of medical care.

In 1947, we began as a tertiary care unit. And today, we've grown much larger to become a multispecialty hospital. Over the years, our global quality of treatment has enabled us to become the hospital of trust for patients not only of Kolkata and eastern India, but also of neighboring countries.

In our 70 year long journey, we have touched millions of lives. And with that, also the dream we nursed.
