Aravind Eye Hospital -CHENNAI
Aravind’s long-time dream is getting materialised with the opening of its new facility in Chennai, the biggest of all Aravind centres. The outpatient services already have begun from September 11, 2017 onwards. The facility will be formally inaugurated on September 30, 2017 by Dr. V. Shanta, Chairperson – Adyar Cancer Institute.
Situated on the city’s Poonamallee High Road, the spacious facility has all the specialities in ophthalmology. It promises high quality ophthalmic care at affordable rates. The hospital has a separate section set up exclusively for the underprivileged sections of the society offering services for free or at steeply subsidised rates.
Over the years, Aravind Eye Hospital, Madurai has built good will and trust amongst patients coming from Chennai. A number of patients from several parts of the city have been visiting Aravind Eye Hospitals in various locations to avail quality eye treatment. This number is increasing year after year. Most of these patients come to Aravind for speciality eye surgeries which are complex and are provided at reasonable charges or at subsidised cost for those who belong to poor socioeconomic groups. Many of them have to come for several review visits following surgery and the cost involved in the travel makes the entire treatment cycle expensive for many. Recognizing the hardships that these patients have to face to access the hospital, Aravind was very keen to establish a hospital in Chennai.
The physical environment and infrastructure developed at Aravind-Chennai, is a reflection of the values for which the organisation stand for - transparency, integrity, and compassionate care. The facility will serve as a centre of excellence by treating patients, training eye care professionals and disseminating the latest and best practices in eye care.
Aravind-Chennai handled 48,496 outpatient visits and performed 4,354 surgeries from April 2017- March 2018.
