Way back in 1978 Dr P M Varkey took the initiativechairman and an elite group of philanthropists and businessman met to discuss the setting up of a hospital specializing in cardiac cases. As a prelude,... more they formed a society namely the Trichur Heart Foundation with Dr.P.M.Varkey, FRCP as its President The society subsequently sponsored the Sun Medical and Research Centre, the first investor owned, multi disciplinary Super Speciality High Tech Corporate Hospital with Dr. Varkey as its President and Chief Promoter. The project was conceived with an idea of establishing an institution of international standards to provide excellence in treatment, nursing care, service and cleanliness.
The Company was floated in 1985 and the foundation stone was laid by his Holiness Pope John Paul on 7th Feb. 1986. Visualized to house 500 beds and other supporting facilities the construction was started in 1988.
Geographically Trichur enjoys the center place of Kerala and is blessed with a conglomeration of educational institutions of every discipline. But up to 90’s we did not have super Speciality Hospital in this part of our state which could cater to the needs of seriously ill or injured patients who needed critical care-especially in the field of heart diseases and Trauma cases. Sun Medical and Research Centre - was intended to fill this vaccum and to make available such expensive treatment at an affordable rate to needy in distress.
“I was very pleased with my experience at Sun Medical Care. I can be a hard critic of emergency care places and the people employed by them. Combine that attitude with an innate crankiness when I’m... more not feeling at all well and the result can be much less than pleasant. This time (My first time at Sun Medical Care) was a world away from previous experiences elsewhere. It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. When I say the doctor and all the other employees of the Sun Medical Care made me feel that I was in safe hands and even made me smile when I left, then you can believe they are the best. I am truly grateful and won’t get that awful feeling of dread the next time I get sick and am unable to see my own physician. I appreciated their follow-up and willingness to answer questions also. A big thank you to all of them.”
