Raksha - Hospice Care was inaugurated on 13th June 2001, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the G. Kuppusamy Naidu Memorial Hospital, and its service to community. Since then we have been providing high quality Palliative Care free of charge for cancer patients – especially the terminally ill, enabling/helping them to go peacefully and comfortably. The Hospice is 15 bedded unit where qualified medical personnel provide 24- hour care to terminally ill patients.
The Rural Health Centre – Veerapandi G. Kuppuswamy Naidu Memorial Hospital had started a Rural Health Centre at the village Veerapandi, off Mettupalayam Road on 5 th May 1995. This rural health center was started to provide comprehensive health care for the villagers of Selvapuram, which is about 4 km off the main road and also to provide medical consultation and treatment for the surrounding villages free of cost. The trust had selected this place, because, inspite of being close to the city like Coimbatore, this village was totally isolated from civilization even without a road or bus service.
The centre provides the following medical services to the villagers, such as the following --
- Regular treatment
- Health education
- Antenatal & Postnatal check ups
- Maternal and child health care
- Family welfare programmes
- AIDS awareness
- Nutrition programmes
- Cancer screening programmes
- Free eye camps
- Free cardiac consultation
- Free eye & cardiac surgery for deserving patients
- Pulse Polio Immunisation programme in co-ordination with nearby Primary Health centre
- Diabetic Clinic
- Dental Care
- Tobacco cessation Clinic every week
Health Education Programme: The Center conducts teaching programs for school children, parents, nursing mothers, volunteers & youth from the village, facts about nutrition, sanitation, immunization, hygiene, first aid, family planning methods etc., through the means of charts, placards, posters, lectures, workshops, discussions, film shows, songs, folk dances and dramas.The Centre has also identified and extends healthcare to the surrounding villages which need basic medical facilities, health education, preventive medicine and a good referral system.
