Nalam Medical centre and Hospital, had its humble beginning on 7th April 2008. Started on world health day, the mission was to give quality care at affordable price for the people of Vellore. Though on its inauguration many people had the doubt whether it was needed and will it survive with one of the leading hospital in India providing its services very closeby. However, we did not have any such doubts as we felt we were not competitors but were providing an excellent secondary speciality service to the people and stabilisation of critically ill patients would go a long way in the successful outcome. There was also a need in the society for a hospital with good infrastructure.
