in Thanjavur is a 50-bedded tertiary care center that features a 16-bedded ICU dedicated to specialized Stroke and Neurology care. It proudly stands as the first hospital in the district equipped with an MRI scanner and a Cath Lab.

We take pride in providing rapid assessment, intervention, and treatment for numerous common and complex neurological conditions.
