Kavery Medical Centre to set up hospital in Chennai

Chennai, Aug. 2: Tiruchi-based Kavery Medical Centre & Hospital, popularly known as KMC, is setting up a hospital in Chennai. The outlay in the 200-bed multi-speciality hospital is around Rs 40 crore.

The investment is being funded through bank loans and internal accruals. “If need be, we may go for PE funding,” says Dr S. Manivannan, Joint Managing Director, KMC.

The hospital, targeted at the middle class, is coming up at an existing building in Alwarpet, Chennai, spanning four floors. It is expected to start operations by November this year.

It runs two hospitals in Tiruchi– the 250-bed Kavery Medical Centre (KMC) and the 200-bed KMC Speciality Hospital. KMC Speciality was formed as a result of an Rs 18 crore-acquisition of Seahorse Hospital in 2009 with the help of PE firm Nicholas Piramal Investors.

Galaxy of noble professionals made Tiruchi proud

Tiruchi district could carve a niche for itself in the field of medicine, thanks to the dedication of leading medical practitioners of the yester decades when they were alive.

The entire medical fraternity in the district eulogise the professionalism of prominent doctors of yesteryears. T.S.S.Rajan; Joseph Gnanadickam, Balambal; O.R.Balu; Capt T.S.Balasubramaniya Iyer; P.A.S.Raghavan; T.N.Subramaniyan; R. Kalamegham; A.Mathuram; V.V.S.Krishnamoorthy; and G.Viswanathan Pillai, are the leading medical professionals who were noted for their health care services.

These noble doctors played a crucial role in organising several health camps and extending the basic treatment to the needy. Prevention of blindness; early detection of cancer and prompt treatment for the disease were their objectives. With limited resources, they organised several health camps with a strong determination to serve the society.

Dr.T.S.S.Rajan was an eminent surgeon of Tiruchi, who, as the first Health Minister of the composite Madras Presidency, was responsible for introduction of Honorary System of Medical Officers, who were helpful to the government in rendering free service to the people. Dr. Rajan was instrumental in starting Tiruchi District Medical Association in 1929 which was the forerunner of the Indian Medical Association, Tiruchi branch.

Another popular physician Swaminatha Sastri treated the downtrodden free of cost. In recognition of his meritorious services, the then Tiruchi Municipality named a road in Thillainagar after him as Dr. Swaminatha Sastri Road.

Dr. Captain T. S. Balasubramaniya Iyer initially served in the army and then as assistant district medical officer. He evinced keen interest in the growth of Tiruchi district Medical Men”s Association.

Dr. G. Viswanathan Pillai, was a pioneer in the field of free medical services to the downtrodden and reduced the clutches of commercialization in that field. He made the profession a service oriented. He started his services from a thatched shed in 1939 and he was the only doctor then giving treatment without any consultation fee. Since then, in the GVN Hospital founded by him and at present run by his sons Dr. V. Jayapal and Dr. V. Kanagarj and grand sons, no consultation fee is being collected from any of the patients.

Due to the charity based treatment a large number of rural people prefer to visit this hospital.

His dedication, perseverance, deep academic knowledge, his diagnostic ability and his undaunted service mind are still being recalled by all sections. He started free dispensaries in different places.

Dr. G. Joseph Gnanadickam, a doyen among eye specialists, established Joseph Eye Hospital in the 1930 s. He thought beyond his profession, about the needs of the society and left behind him a permanent impact of his services.

His services in three dimensions – prevention, cure of eye diseases and rehabilitation of the incurable visually challenged, formed a fundamental foundation for the humanitarian service.

From a small ophthalmic unit, the Joseph Eye Hospital has gradually grown into a reputed teaching institute and a leading centre for one of the finest and most comprehensive ophthalmic outreach programmes in the country.

Dr. P. M. Krishnamoorthy, a municipal medical officer, was a well known physician, who used to visit the surrounding villages in his horse-drawn coach and treat the patients.

Dr. V. Subramaniam was the first allopathy physician to receive training in general surgery and he served as honorary assistant medical officer in the headquarters hospital, Tiruchi.

Dr. P. A. S. Raghavan, a pioneer in radiology, had his training in Vienna. He was the editor of the monthly magazine, The Miscellany, which was published by the Indian Medical Association.

Dr.Balambal, was the first woman doctor to do private practice in the district. She, as an able obstetrician, rendered good service to women patients. The first tuberculosis specialist of the district was Dr. N. C. Subramanian. Dr. A. Mathuram was yet another popular medical practitioner of the central region. K.G.Menon was the first ENT specialist.

The speciality about these veterans, who could inspire subsequent generations to take to medicine, is that their services are being remembered by people even now. ‘All these doctors were doyens and were committed to their profession.

They were forerunners for the overall development of the central region in the medical field, even at a time when medical facilities were scarce”, proudly recalls, M.S.Ashraf, Chairman, Tamil Nadu chapter of the Association of Physicians of India.

Tiruchi emerges medical hub of central Tamil Nadu

From small nursing homes and clinics to multi specialty hospitals and super specialists, the healthcare scenario in the city has undergone a sweeping change. With Tiruchi emerging as a medical hub for central Tamil Nadu, healthcare professionals here are positive that given it's strategic location, the city is on the way to becoming the most sought after health care centre after Chennai and Coimbatore.

Multiple factors are expected to propel this development: several diagnostic and surgical procedures cost less than metros; young specialists are choosing to practice here; at least two corporate multispecialty hospitals by Apollo Hospitals and Cethar Vessels are underway; and medical tourism has been projected to take off aided by good international air connectivity.



can anyone know what is the status of Cethar vessels "Medical city"?
where is it coming up? how big the project is?

they wont do it now it may even take more than 5 yrs iam an employee of this company

Multiple factors are expected to propel this development: several diagnostic and surgical procedures cost less than metros; young specialists are choosing to practice here; at least two corporate multispecialty hospitals by Apollo Hospitals and Cethar Vessels are underway; and medical tourism has been projected to take off aided by good international air connectivity.

M.S.Ashraf, former national vice-president, IMA says, “While metropolitan hospitals cater primarily to urban centres, it is imperative to develop healthcare in tier two cities to reach out to lower middle class and rural population.” The long pending demand for upgrading Annal Gandhi Memorial Hospital on a par with other national medical institutes is vital he adds, laying emphasis on trauma care as numerous road accidents occur in the 30-mile radius of Tiruchi.

Earlier, while people moved to Chennai for bypass surgeries and only a handful of specialists were available, today advanced technology and diagnostic procedures, save a few, are available. A number of single specialty hospitals for psychiatry, plastic surgery, gastroenterology, eye care and subspecialties among them are on hand. Cardiology, neonatal care, oncology, and infertility treatment are set to receive a boost, along with neurosciences, geriatric and trauma care.

“Today patients want all services under one roof and are willing to spend more if there are no hassles. Day care surgeries and minimal invasive procedures are sought after with patients preferring shorter stay at the hospital,” says K.Govindaraj, Director, Dr.G.Viswanathan Speciality Hospitals. Oncology and laparoscopic surgeries are the strengths of the hospital that has introduced several advanced procedures at its recently opened unit at Babu Road. A new centre in Mambazha Salai would focus on linear accelerator treatment and trauma care.

Mohansundaram, Joint Director, Health Services, believes that with industries and institutions emerging around the city, there is a need for comprehensive health centres. Besides, patients from at least six districts come here for advanced surgeries and specialties.

“With potential for practice in metros almost reaching a saturation point, an increasing number of specialists are eyeing Tiruchi. Doctors trained in Europe and America is settling down here. But to make the city an attractive option, overall infrastructure must be developed,” says S.Chandrakumar, Managing Director, KMC Group of Hospitals. Immediate plans of the hospital that prides itself on renal and orthopaedic transplants include an exclusive cardiology block.

There are still a section of people travelling to Chennai for medical treatment, though this is concentrated in the upper middle class. While unavailability of a handful of diagnostic and surgical procedures maybe a reason, social stigma and satisfaction of treatment with the names in healthcare is the driving force.

Multi specialty hospitals are trying to cash in on this segment, by prioritising on ambience in addition to quality treatment- something which Vasan Healthcare group with two multispecialty hospitals Maruthi and ABC is also looking at. The Maruthi Hospital which claims neurosciences and neonatal care as its stronger points is treading into cardio thoracic surgery and surgical oncology.

Medical Tourism

Tiruchi's connectivity to South East Asian countries has raised the scope of medical tourism. Sri Lanka is seen as a potential source to be tapped. “Affordable healthcare would be the city's USP. Some major surgeries are performed here for nearly half the cost of metros,” says Mr.Chandrakumar.

For medical tourism, development of infrastructure and public transport, increase in hotels and availability of service apartments, and developing heritage tourism would facilitate more patients to choose the city for medical needs, opines Dr.Ashraf.

Undoubtedly health costs are spiralling and health insurance is mooted as the unanimous counteractive. Extending advanced healthcare to poorer sections would be feasible only through government insurance schemes while mandatory health insurance for salaried classes could make costs less dreaded, are common views.

Making quality treatment cost effective is a social responsibility and the need of the hour to put Tiruchi on the healthcare map.


Sounds Great :P
