Hospitals can be a place of optimism, positivity and colours. Dr Aravindan Selvaraj with his vast experience from Ireland and London for 15 years always wanted to create a place of hope and happiness when the patients are recovering from illness. The hospital shall be very much part of the local community with which people can associate themselves with a narrative which threads through various stages of their lives from birth. Since the establishment of the world class facility in Alwarpet, Chennai, India, Kauvery hospital has been focused on establishing an ecosystem wherein the participative local community and the inclusive society plays a major role in providing an experience which is pleasant and positive.
With that objective, Project Magizhchi was launched on the 18th January, 2020. Director of Arts Vijayalakshmi Shivaram and her team curated an art gallery, wherein budding artists, doctors and patients with special talents will be able to display their works on the walls of Kauvery Hospital.
A lot of research which substantiates that good art makes the patient more positive towards health and helps the patient heal better. We in Kauvery are well aware that good mental health leads to better physical health.
