Dear K-Way Readers and our Kauvery Family,

As the dusk of 2023 settles in with warm hues, we stand on the cusp of a new beginning – the dawn of 2024. It’s like the closing notes of a quiet evening making way for a brand-new day filled with the promise of good health and well-being.

In the heart of our journey, Kauvery Hospital has evolved into a preferred healthcare institution, offering hope and compassionate care for all. I believe our commitment to providing unparalleled, affordable and empathetic healthcare has solidified Kauvery’s position as the trusted healthcare brand, a sentiment reinforced by our community during the challenging times of the COVID – 19 pandemic.


Message from the Editor

Dear K-Way Readers,

Wishing you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2024.

We are almost a quarter century into the 21st century.

In the last hundred years, life has evolved and almost a complete evolution has happened. 100 years ago, instant connectivity to even our neighbour’s house was not possible but today we are all able to stay connected through the internet and digital world.

Even the worst of pandemics was controlled with digital connectivity. On the other hand, the spread of infections can also happen rapidly as the world has become so connected.

Patient Experience


“We went for the whole-body health check and had a really great experience. All the tests were done in half a day which is something I’ve not seen done in other big hospitals I went for health check in the past. Also, most of the tests are done in the same building which makes it even better. The coordination from the health check team is amazing, worth to mention Grace who is the lead. She was always available to help and very cordial. I would recommend here for any health checks. Also the whole body check plan I chose seemed to have more tests than comparative tests from other hospitals.”
