Dr. Sunita Dube started Aryan Hospital in 2003 in Kurla, a suburb of Mumbai dominated by large areas of slums with people living in unhygienic conditions. During the early period of her post-graduate studies and when she started the hospital, she would personally be present there to see that the patients get proper treatment irrespective of the type of ailment he/she suffered from. All her work was appreciated and lauded by her patients and colleagues as well. She then felt that seeing patients would not be enough. Handing the hospital, which by then had almost all the branches to trusted lieutenants, she created platform into an area where there was a need to create awareness on various issues of health, nutrition, disease, etc among the poor masses and also to bring the diverse field of medicine on to one common platform. After establishing her hospital, Dr. Sunita Dube started Aryan Medical & Education Trust where funds received are used for various social and charitable causes.
