Indira Gandhi Co-operative Hospital [ IGCH] is very unique in so many ways. For more than 4 decades Indira Gandhi Co-operative Hospital has been serving people from all walks of life with exceptional healthcare. I have been working in the hospital from 1992 onwards and also associated with the management team as Medical director for the last 13 years, closely watching the various development activities in the hospital, credits goes to Mr. Mambaram Divakaran; President of this institution, the man with vision and energy. He has been our leader who is guiding us from the front . His role in leading our hospital as doctors, patients, staffs and society friendly is unimaginable.

Our Doctors panel is our real asset; doctors who give care to the patients with empathy, well knowledgeable ,good in techniques. They are very friendly with each other and with the staff and the management. Almost all the doctors of our hospital came from reputed government medical colleges from various part of India.

He is well supported by Administrative officer, Assistant manager, HR manager, PRO , Nursing superintendent and head nurses. Our admin wing is very cooperative with doctors, staff and patient care .

Our staffs are very unique. Almost all the nursing staffs are qualified, knowing the nursing care in depth. They are selected by strict interview and the quality of their work, knowledge and experience are the criteria for admission. We have been conducting regular classes to the staffs for upgrading their knowledge. We are giving equal importance to their sports and arts capacity also; for promoting the same we used to conduct the hospital day celebration on every year. On all the festivals like Onam . Christmas , New year we used to celebrate in the grand manner. Our outstanding team of nursing, technical and support staff strive to ensure the best possible treatment outcomes as well as providing an unparalleled experience while at IGCH.
