Self-sustainability Model

One of the unique features of the Sankara Eye Hospitals is the self-sustainable 80:20 model; where 20% of the paid surgeries fund 80% of the free surgeries. This model ensures that hospitals fund themselves once the self-sufficiency is reached.Starting with only one hospital performing about 8,000 free eye surgeries in 1998, today, SEF has grown to nine hospitals performing around 200,000 free eye surgeries per year. The next hospitals are coming up in Mumbai, Indore, Hyderabad and Mastichak (Bihar)
