Dr. Rai Memorial Medical Centre was established in the year 1962 by Dr. K.M.Rai, after his retirement from the service as Professor and Head of the Department of Barnard Institute of Radiology at the Madras Medical College in Chennai. He was one of the renowned Radiologists in the Country who had the vision to start a Medical Centre to treat cancer patients, four decades ago, and a time when cancer treatment was a novelty and out of reach or the common man. Since then the centre continues to render committed service to the cause of treating cancer patients.
From a humble beginning the centre has grown from strength to strength and today the centre has emerged as a fully fledged 40 bedded hospital with all modern equipments and facilities like the state of the art Linear Accelerator, Telecobalt therapy, Brach therapy, Mammogram, Ultrasound, X ray, CT Scan, Pathological/ Clinical Laboratory and Operation Theatre. The centre is located in the heart of the city on 562, Century Plaza, Mount Road (Anna Salai) Teynampet, and Chennai - 18 and is easily accessible.
At present Dr.R.R.Rai MS (Surgeon) is in overall charge of the Medical Centre.
