Message from Chief Nursing Officer Desk

“Save one Life, you’re a Hero, Save a hundred lives, you’re a Nurse”
we have come across this quote many times….

Truly – We MEAN it!!.



Nurses are considered the most irreplaceable sources of a hospital, and, we from the GKNM family, growing at the branch of Nursing services, proudly voice out in providing the quality nursing care with compassion, empathy and utmost dedication.

Here we have the opportunity to heal mind, soul and body of our patients, their families and ourselves. We under estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest accomplishment or a smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around., And our Nurses do those garnishes, to keep those turning points keep on jotting from the hospital premises in and out, transforming lives of many patients.

We can clearly tell and recommend to choose up GKNM Hospital, to work, serve and uplift one’s career as a Nurse, which will keep their experiences enchanted for decades together. We have opportunities to build up the career growth as well as professional quality development. ‘Knowing is not enough we APPLY’, is the baseline of our Nurses. “Willing is not enough, we must DO”, is the first step of our Nursing fraternity.

Best wishes to engrave the nursing services in an efficient way!!
