Everything begins with Good Health Good Health the foundation of a quality life
The Gerdi Gutperle Agasthiyar Muni Children and Maternity Care Centre at Vellamadam, Nagercoil, is a Children Speciality and Maternity Care Hospital with German collaboration, established to give quality medical care primarily to the poor children (upto the age of 12) of the southern districts (Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli and Tuticorin) of Tamil Nadu. The Child Care Centre is not just a hospital, but we envisage promoting the entire spectrum of health. This comprises of 3 aspects:
i.e. by developing Health Care by health education (by providing health awareness and protection) and screening for early detection of diseases.
i.e. by developing into a tertiary paediatric referral hospital.
3. Reconstructive and rehabilitative
i.e. by providing opportunity to children who have birth or acquired defects, to undergo reconstructive procedures through surgery or other aids. Children, who have non-correctable ailments, will be provided rehabilitative measures like counselling, physiotherapy etc.
and if required, will be referred to institutions which cater to their special needs.
