About Kauvery Hospital:
Kauvery Hospital grew out of the vision of doctors who chased their dream to provide quality healthcare at affordable costs but with a personal touch, especially to the mid segment of population in cities like Trichy that lacked tertiary care. The hospital commenced its modest operations as a 30-bed trauma care centre in Trichy in 1999. Today, it is a multi-specialty hospital chain with 1500+ beds in five cities including Trichy, Chennai, Salem, Hosur and Bengaluru, where seven hospitals with a workforce of more than 6,000 provide exemplary secondary and tertiary care. Since inception, Kauvery Hospital has been on a perpetual quest to keep up with the ever-changing requirements of healthcare, possibly, always a step ahead.
