Memorial Announces The Sarvanand Heart & Stroke Center
$2 million gift will benefit cardiac and stroke patient care at Memorial
Lajpat Rai Munger and his sons, David (Baldev) and Kable (Kewel) have made a $2 million gift to establish the Sarvanand Heart & Stroke Center at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital. The Munger family has offered this landmark gift in the name of their guru, Swami Sarvanand Gir, whose philosophy of life expressed righteousness, hard work, compassion, charity, honesty and brotherhood.
The Munger family has lived by these ideals and share their prosperity through philanthropic giving. In 1966, Mr. and Mrs. Lajpat Munger traveled to America in search of a better life with more opportunity for their seven children. Today, Mr. Munger and his sons, operating as Munger Farms and its affiliated companies, are leading growers, packers and shippers of berries and pistachios worldwide. They also grow almonds and olives.
Mr. Munger, who has survived two major heart attacks, gratefully acknowledges the care he has received from Dr. Tommy Lee and Dr. Ed Nichols and wishes to continue the family’s charitable work through this donation to the Sarvanand Heart & Stroke Center.
