Dr. Vanchilingam Hospital

in Thanjavur is a 50-bedded tertiary care center which boasts of a 16 bedded ICU dedicated for speciality Stroke and Neurology care and the first hospital in the district to have an MRI scanner and a Cath Lab. The Hospital is powered by a dedicated team of experienced and skilled physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals, led by Dr. Somesh Vanchilingam, the first Interventional Neurologist of Tamilnadu.

The hospital has treated over a million people who have been affected by Neurological challenges.

The result of which was KSDC (Karthik scan and Diagnostics Center) established in the year 1996, in Thanjavur, providing patients with the latest diagnostic facilities available then.
