Haryana, India, 21st Jan 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, Dr. Neil Dhalla was a trailblazer who lived his life in keeping with the teachings of the book “The Secret” – Ask for it. Believe it. Receive it.
As a Visionary, an Innovator, a Doctor, an Entrepreneur and a Philanthropist, Dr. Dhalla served as a mentor to some and an inspiration to many. Suddenly and unexpectedly, Dr. Dhalla passed away in his sleep on December 23, 2021. Neil was smart, driven, determined, & disciplined. He had both passion and purpose to help people, making him a symbol of hope and inspiration for all those who knew him.
Neil was a devoted son to his mother Mrs. T. Dhalla, and a loving brother to Dr. Ruby Dhalla. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Neil was a cherished nephew of both the Dhalla and Dhillon families, as well as a cousin, uncle and loyal friend to many.
Neil was driven and highly ambitious from an early age, earning his Bachelor of Science from the University of Manitoba and then graduating Magna Cum Laude from Life University in Atlanta, Georgia as a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine.
Upon his return to Canada, Dr. Dhalla quickly established himself as a leader in his field, combining his business acumen with his commitment to delivering the highest quality of patient care to launch both a chain of multidisciplinary clinics across the Greater Toronto Area and a healthcare company with a wide range of health services.
He was passionate about health, wellness and healthcare, and worked to improve the overall patient experience, resulting in his group of companies garnering a reputation as one of Canada’s leading-edge healthcare providers.
Dr. Dhalla’s experience of over 20 years in the field of Healthcare was integral to him helping Governments, Hospitals and Corporations around the world keep safe, healthy and protected during the most recent pandemic.
Dr. Dhalla combined his vision and knowledge with his commitment to the Indigenous Peoples to help create access to healthcare services via Tele-Medicine Technology. His model for efficient, effective and quality healthcare services was applauded and welcomed by many Indigenous Chiefs and Community members.
His life’s work, more accurately described as his “calling”, changed the lives of countless patients, team members, business partners and their families. As the Founder and CEO of his group of companies, he was respected and admired for his leadership & mentorship.
As an innovator and visionary, Neil saw skyscrapers in rubble. It was this vision which was instrumental in him diversifying his portfolio to include hotels and real estate. With a hotel portfolio spanning the globe and real estate investments worldwide, Neil was just as driven, determined, persistent and passionate about investing, creating and making the impossible possible in his real estate and hotel ventures, as he was about advancing healthcare.
Neil’s life and business philosophy was rooted in the teachings of Sikhism. He often recited the phrase, “Maan Neeva Mat Uchi” – To live life in humility, without ego. In keeping with the teachings of his faith, his generosity was felt by many individuals and charitable organizations, including the homeless, new immigrants, youth, women who were victims of domestic violence, and those who struggled with mental health challenges.
As a philanthropist at heart, he had been working on his latest project to help those suffering from mental health and addictions with an addictions center and an app focused on providing mental health services.
Raised by a single mother, with a sister dedicated to public service and a staff of women in senior positions he was always a strong champion for women in business and politics. Neil was also dedicated to mentoring young entrepreneurs, helping them develop leadership skills and pursue their dreams.
Faith, Family and Friends were his pillars. After losing his father at a young age and being raised by a single mother his most important role was that of being a loving son and caring brother. He was an exceptional man who respected everyone, whether they were a cook or a CEO. His kindness, generosity, drive, passion and vision are a legacy that will forever be carried in the hearts of all those whose lives he touched.
He was our Hero.
