Dr. Palaniappan received “Best CEO” Award by times of India 2015

Our patients speak

Mr. R************

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. T Palaniappan who treated me and my dad for COVID 19 in Medway hospital, Trustpuram. He gave us the confidence we will overcome this. Initially appointed dad in x hospital where the required care wasn't there. Commercials were too high. Felt totally insecure. Through Ganesh V reached Dr. T Palaniappan and doctor asked us only to home quarantine as we didn't have symptoms but keeping my dad age in criteria I requested to hospitalize. Most highlighted things about Medway hospital infrastructure, doctor, and caretakers were there in abundance 24/7. Required food, medicines were given on time. Coming to commercials its one of the most affordable hospital in Chennai. Thank you so much Dr. T Palaniappan for taking care of us.

Arvind Chari
Quantum Advisors Pvt. Ltd

Let me first and foremost extend my appreciation to all the medical and the administrative staff at Medway Hospitals for providing a very pleasant and satisfactory experience during my mother’s recent admission at the hospital.

My mother had suffered another brain stroke that afternoon, second in the span of 2 weeks and the earlier general hospital near our house was not able to arrange for a neurologist to come and visit her and also due to her earlier history of running slight fever advised us to admit her in a multi-specialty hospital.

The neurologist who had treated her earlier, DR. Ananth, advised us to get her to Medway Hospital at Kodambakkam.

Before we reached Medway, through a contact of our family, we had informed the Medway staff and to our most pleasant surprise, the hospital’s general Manager, Mr Senthil Kumaran and the ICU Doctor, Dr Gajjan, were already waiting for us.

It almost felt like we were being welcomed at a five star hotel, with Senthil and his staff, doing the needful with regards to ensuring that my mother and I did not have COVID like symptoms. At the same time, they made us comfortable and immediately made arrangements for her tests and admission.

Under Dr. Ananth, who consults at Medway, we were well and truly, in good hands. At the same time, the care shown by duty doctors and the nursing staff must also be commended.

The administrative process of admission, billing and medical is also seamless which suggests that process and practices are well adhered to.

I must specially thank Mr Senthil Kumaran, who not only during our brief stay at the hospital but even till today, calls up and checks on mother’s recovery. I have never seen anyone from the hospital admin to do so.

Since we are from Bombay and were looking for ways to get back, Senthil was also helpful in providing us with relevant information for the travel pass and relevant contacts in trying to arrange for some means of transport to travel inter-state during the lockdown.

Overall, I would highly recommend Medway Hospitals. Kudos

Jagadeesh Narayanasamy

Best in class 5 star support - This includes all services from the front desk, Xray/CT, ward boys, sweeping nannies who kept room and toilets sanitized several times a day.

Special Mention to All Nursing staffs who were very polite, dedicated, and spot on with their task and never missed to inject or tablet me on time. To be fair I felt like home because of the nursing staffs.

Also Senthil, you deserve special mention here as you were very helpful throughout my stay, and your help and collaborative effort viz upgrading room, insurance, and collaboration is applaudable.

If there are any areas to improve it would be on the part of duty doctors. Experienced floor doctors would be handy and in my cases, if I mention any health-related issues they widely depend on senior doctors to suggest the solution.

Overall I'm very happy and thanks to Medway management for admitting me during critical times amist Covid scare.


First of all thanks to your hospital sir for treating me at this crucial time ie Corona being all over and when none of the hospitals were ready to take inpatient or even ready to hear to us.

The moment we came in there doctors were ready to treat us and we had a good treatment there all the doctors and nurses were very kind and they took good care of me. And a very big thanks to Senthil sir for his timely help and he was with us till we got discharged and helped us in all the ways he could.

Selvakumar Balakrishnan

My father was suffering from Diabetic Wound and it was unhealed for a long time. After having discussed and treated by Dr. T. Palaniappan and in course of time the wound started to come down. Excellent explanation of the course of treatment by the doctor. Will suggest him to all my friends.
