Kauvery Hospitals new block is for Specialty Outpatient Departments (OPD)

Kauvery Hospital recently inaugurated a new block on C P Ramaswamy Road, where it will offer specialty consultations to people walking in as outpatients.

The four-storey building, known as Specialty Outpatient Department (OPD) has experts across Oncology, Gastroenterology, Liver Diseases, Nephrology and Urology.

Each floor is dedicated to a speciality thereby making cross referrals easier for patients. By offering outpatient services in the new block, this will also help segregate the people from in-patients thereby significantly controlling cross infections. 

Located behind the main hospital is the Family Health Centre, which will provide services related to Master Health Check-ups.

The block is accessible through the main building entrance and Lady Desika Chari Road. The main hospital will continue to provide in-patient services with an increase in beds and also houses the OPD of Orthopaedics, Spine, Neurology and Emergency departments. All the three blocks are present within the Kauvery campus, and patients can access the blocks with help of a shuttle service which is available throughout the day.

Kauvery Day Care, an exclusive facility for patients undergoing chemotherapy has been launched on C P Ramaswamy Road. The idea behind a dedicated center for chemotherapy is to avoid mixing up of cancer patients with other patients, and to control cross infections which might pose a threat to them.
