Today’s competitive scenario in the health care industry demands that the marketing division of any hospital ensures a steady and increasing flow of patients. However, at Meenakshi Mission, the marketing team, under the able guidance of our Founder Chairman Dr. N. Sethuraman, has always been working towards not only increasing the number of patients but to also impart knowledge about the preventive, corrective and palliative ways of treating diseases. This is what differentiates MMHRC from many other hospitals.
After 30 years of extensive involvement, the marketing team has become an integral part of the daily activities of our hospital. The department ensures that their message not only reaches the urban but also the rural population. The team, the largest in Tamilnadu, has always made sure that their goals are in line with the organization’s goals.
