We have a new Doctor

Dr Ramesh, a paediatrician, joined us from the 01st of January. His presence has made adefinite and positive impact on the quality of health care for children. His wife, Jyothi teaches English at the Rishi Valley School and we hope that he will be with us for a long period of time.

Venkataramana - A wizened baby - UPDATE

An update.
Venkataramana barely survived a week in St Johns Medical College, succumbing to his various illnesses.
Loosing a life is always a hard one to take. In this case the mother is also ill with a Congestive Heart Failure due to Rheumatic Heart Disease. We have been counselling the family to avoid further pregnancies as it could prove dangerous to the mother.
