Seethapathy Clinic and Hospital founded by Dr N S Murali
began as a small practice in Luz when Dr N S Murali and Dr Sarojini Raman started their clinical practice together. It moved to its current premises in 1963. Over time, it has grown in size, and the services offered have expanded to where they are today. The hospital has been particularly lucky to have the goodwill, support and encouragement from its colleagues and patients alike. This has helped the hospital reach where it is, and it continues to motivate the team to achieve more.
In 2013, Seethapathy Clinic & Hospital took on the operations and management of the EV Kalyani Medical Centre, a landmark housed in Chennai’s Radhakrishnan Salai. The EV Kalyani Medical Centre in itself is a story of legacy in the world of obstetrics and gynaecology, founded more than six decades ago in 1949 by Dr EV Kalyani, the first woman MD in Tamilnadu. In 2016, with the objective to ensure continued care for the newborn, a ten-bedded level 2 NICU was added to the facility.
The vision and mission of the hospital has been in keeping with the philosophy of the founders : that it is possible to offer quality care at affordable costs.
Providing affordable health care across generations
Providing quality healthcare efficiently and ethically
From a 6 bedded facility, we have now grown to having two units. In 2013, we started operations at the Unit 2 on Radhakrishnan Salai as well.
At present 40,000 OPD patients & 5475 in patients are treated every year with 1825 operations being performed per year. The facilities we offer are Surgery, OBGYN, Paediatrics and Neonatology, General Medicine and Endocrinology. We also have supportive services with the availability of a Dietician, Lactation Consultant and Childbirth Educator. In the second unit, we have a 10 bedded NICU as well to complete the care offered to our mothers and babies.
