MMCH organization is planning to go for an expansion in the field of cardiology and cardiothoracic surgeries for the simple reason that there is the only corporate competitive unit in Erode which is not affordable for a common man and our association with every State Govt.

Association with all government schemes both central and state and almost all other private insurance organisations of our country and the goodwill as the hospital for the economically weaker section for the past 15 years, will be helpful to our future endeavours.
