The Aravind Eye Hospital at Anna Nagar, Madurai is really a gem of our Madurai.We Maduraiites can genuinely be proud of this great institution, which renders noble service to the society at an affordable fee or even free of charge. This hospital has been and is still doing humane , remarkable service for patients needy of eye care. The hard work,meticulousness , foresighted vision and mission of Dr. Venkatasamy, who established this institution is immensely admirable. Getting treated here is a pleasurable experience. Recently my father aged 74 yrs underwent a surgery for cataract and the treatment and care they provided was very nice , comforting and heartening . i witnessed people arriving from the farthest corners of our country and even from foreign lands, with an unshakable faith in this hospital for getting treatment. Affirming their faith , the hospital staff are extremely kind, sympathetic , patient and render excellent medical service. Not only that, they were on a glorious and avowed mission to eradicate the" needless blindness " amongst the world population and especially within India. It is humbly and earnestly appealed to the forumers , my fellow Maduraiites to please register their names for Voluntary Eye Donation with the Aravind Eye Hospital but to also create awareness about this lofty cause , serving the needy persons. Thank you one and all.
The Aravind eye care are pioneers in Cataract surgery and it is a classic Harvard Business Review case study.
They are now establishing a 700 bedded hospital in Chennai and they also have plans to set up hospitals in Africa to extend their footprint to that continent by entering into JVs with hospitals there where medical facilities are really very pathetic.
