GKNM Peripheral Clinic

GKNM Peripheral Clinic

India, where the average life expectancy is close to 70 years, faces a huge burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases – the healthcare for which is provided by a centralised model where the hospital with its full range of services acts as a one-stop destination. Though beneficial for a hospital visitor, many are at a disadvantage due to the longer travel time to seek quality basic medical care.

Communicable diseases including TB, malaria and endemic outbreaks, and non-communicable diseases including diabetes, hypertension and heart diseases can be managed well within the community, when there is access to good primary health care.

G. Kuppuswamy Naidu Memorial Hospital (GKNMH), as part of its ongoing initiatives in community-based health care services, has opened a peripheral clinic at P. N. Pudur on 21stJanuary 2019. The mission of the clinic is to provide an affordable and available community healthcare that would help in disease prevention, promote health awareness and care for short and long-term illnesses through excellence in healthcare practices. This is the second peripheral centre for GKNMH, with the Veerapandi Rural Centre being the first and successful venture. The Home Health Services- Care at Your Doorstep and Brindavan Senior Citizen Home clinics are the other successful projects implemented by GKNMH in Coimbatore.

The services available at GKNMH’s PN Pudur Peripheral Clinic include primary healthcare for general health needs, medical evaluations, laboratory services, specialty care referrals, immunisation services and pharmacy services. For people living at PN Pudur, Vadavalli, Thondamuthur and nearby areas, the clinic will be of immense advantage due to its proximity. As always, patient safety is our focus and any patients requiring acute care will be treated at our Hospital
