Dr. Kamakshi Memorial Hospital (P) Ltd. is a 350 bedded multi – specialty hospital at Pallikkaranai, Chennai. It is situated in a sprawling 60 grounds land with 75000 sq. ft. Building. The guiding principle of the hospital is to offer the latest health care facilities on par with international standards (obviating the need to go abroad for treatment) and also make them available to increasing numbers of our population. Dr. T.G. Govindarajan, the promoter of the hospital, belongs to a family of entrepreneurs. After graduating from Kilpauk Medical College in the year 1977, he served for three years as a Medical Officer for a clinic catering exclusively to the medical needs of shipping companies. Even during the nascent stage of his career, he had dreamt of establishing a hospital of his own.
In the late 70′s access to even the basic medical facilities was grossly inadequate or non-existent in many localities except in cities and their immediate neighbourhood. This presented him with a wonderful opportunity of realizing his dream of setting up a hospital and serve the needy. An outpatient clinic was started along with his wife Dr. (Late) G. Kamakshi Sundari. From that point onwards, their practice grew by leaps and bounds. This was possible only because of their devotion and dedication to their profession. His dream of having a medium sized hospital was realized when Lakshmi Nursing Home was established at Pallavaram (outskirts of Chennai) in the year 1988. Dr. Govindarajan’s guiding principle regarding medical practice has been and continues to be that all our people must have access to basic medical facilities and the latest in medicare .Medical facilities in our country should develop both in range and quality so as to obviate the need to travel abroad for advanced medical care.
