KR Hospital Mysore

Krishna Rajendra Hospital or KR Hospital Mysore as it is commonly known, is located on Sayyaji Rao Road in Yadavagiri. Founded by Sri Krishnarajendra Wodeyar, a royal scion, in 1927, the hospital has a capacity to bed 1050 patients who flock here from all parts of the State for affordable, quality healthcare. The hospital serves the vision of its founder in delivering superior healthcare to all classes of society, especially those who cannot afford high quality world class treatments.

Philanthropy by KR Hospital Mysore

A distinguishing feature of KR Hospital Mysore is that outpatients receive medicines free of cost, a boon for economically disadvantaged people. In a private hospital a patient is examined and is asked to go to a lab and get various test reports. Here, at the KR Hospital Mysore, everything is available in the premises including echo cardiogram, ultrasound scanning, CT scanning, Mammogram, X-rays, endoscopy, ECT and PUVA therapy and this is indeed one feature that makes the hospital stand apart from all other hospitals of its type.

Recently the Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research has become operational within the KR Hospital Mysore campus, bringing world class cardiovascular care at affordable rates to residents of the city.

Administration of KR Hospital Mysore

The KR Hospital Mysore campus is quite large and sprawling. It does take some time and effort to locate specific departments. However, all said and done, it does offer comprehensive facilities and treatments aimed at serving the common man who would not mind undergoing some minor inconvenience.  However, improvements are an ongoing process and are reflected in all its departments. The KR Hospital Mysore is administered by qualified doctors who are the HODs of the different departments of the hospital. These departments are medicine, surgery, orthopedics, ENT, Skin and STD, Opthalmology, Dental, Anaesthesia, Radio diagnosis, Psychiatry, cardio-thoracic, neurology, radiotherapy and blood bank. Operations are computerized and a computerized billing section makes life easy for patients and staff. 

Privately owned and operated hospitals may boast of better care or treatments but KR Hospital Mysore, a legacy of Sri Krishnarajendra Wodeyar, operates every minute of each day, serving people in dire need at a low cost or even for free, quietly and without fanfare, fulfilling the vision of its founder. There may be controversies and dissatisfaction as is normal in organizations of this size but it is heartening to note that patients, especially from the depressed classes, are not deprived of excellent health care in this public hospital. Regardless of whether a patient is rich or poor, KR Hospital Mysore devotes equal attention to delivering quality services with service oriented doctors playing a key role in treating thousands each day.
