Dr. K. N. Rao and Dr. Padma Rao founded Salem Polyclinic in 1962 which has been one of the most successful and pioneer healthcare providers for the past five decades.
The doctor couple Dr. K. N. Rao & Dr. Padma Rao dedicated their lives to the development of the hospital. They practiced the art of compassionate healing which helped to build a lasting relationship with the patients and their families.
Salem Polyclinic initially commenced as a surgical nursing home under the stewardship of Dr. K. N. Rao. In appreciation of his service, the general public started fondly calling ‘Salem Polyclinic’ as “K N Rao Hospital’. Obstetrics and Gynaecology department which was started a year later by Dr. Padma Rao has become the mainstay of the hospital. Both of them have practiced their profession with a commitment to make healthcare available to anyone who needs it.
Consequently Dr. Arun Rao and Dr. (Mrs.) Rashmi Rao; son & daughter-in-law of Dr. K N Rao have smoothly accepted the baton to carry on the tradition of commitment, blending modern techniques with compassionate healing.
