HISTORY :

“This is one of the finest Women and Children Hospitals I have seen in India”

GKNMH came into existence in May 1952 as

“G. KUPPUSWAMY NAIDU MEMORIAL HOSPITAL FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN.”

Coimbatore in the middle of the last century was a small town with very meagre medical facilities. In 1952, Sri G Kuppuswamy Naidu's step sister Mrs Rajammal died following a complicated labour. This incident was the driving force which lead to the birth of this hospital, initially as a maternity hospital caring for women and children. With the number of patients attending the Maternity Department increasing day by day, a need for a Gynecology ward was felt and a fully equipped New Ward along with an operation theatre was built by the D. Rangaswamy Naidu Trust in June 1954. This Department has since been one of the fore-runners in this field and has consistently improved with the times and is well ahead in keeping up with all the advances in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology. It has earned appreciation and recognition for quality service from people in all walks of life.

The Department is the foremost tertiary referral centre for high risk pregnancy (including bio hazard patients) and is well supported by Level 3 neonatal intensive care unit and neonatal surgical backup. The labour ward is equipped with round the clock emergency ultrasound facilities, continuous electronic fetal monitoring and epidural analgesia in labor.

Since inception, this department has addressed all varieties of gynaecology problems and conventional and radical surgeries for cancer patients, diagnostic as well as operative laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures are carried out regularly.
