NEWS AND EVENTS
THE PAST,THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE
From its humble beginnings in 1888 to its current stature as a 250-bed multi specialty hospital, CSI Rainy, has grown to meet the needs of the community. Given the limited resources particularly over the past several years, the hospital has been stagnant in its Services. However, we have now witnessed a steady growth with additional inputs in terms of equipment & Infrastructure development, which is chronicled in the attached video.
INAUGURATION OF NEW OP DIAGNOSTIC WING
On 19 October 2010, the Bishop in Madras the Rt.Rev.Dr.V.Devasahayam declared open the new Outpatients Diagnostic wing which was made possible due to a generous grant from the Church of Scotland. The adjoining video clip shows the event.
FIRST PAEDIATRIC OPEN HEART SURGERY UNDER KALAIGNAR KAPEEDU THITTAM
8th January 2010 was a special day in the hospital . 6 years old Agassi Victor who was suffering from a sepal defect in the heart was operated at C.S.I Rainy hospital successfully. Drawn from a low socio economic background, Agassi's family is very grateful to the Kalaignar kapeetu thittam which enabled them to have open heart surgery for Agassi at no cost to them. The family is also happy with the treatment they received at the hospital. This marks, what we hope will be the beginning of a cardiac program aimed at helping the marginalised section of our society. That the hospital now has the expertise and infra structure to offer open heart surgery for little children and adults is a matter of great pride for us.
