Thirty years ago (1985) two young doctors, Rama Rao (R), a surgeon and Krishna Murty (K), a physician, after rendering their services as specialists to the Ministry of Health, Algeria for about 5 years, came back to India and started their humble project, RK HOSPITAL, a 50 bed multi-speciality centre in Gajuwaka, the hub and heart of the industrial belt of VISAKHAPATNAM. Their mission was to bring the available modern medical facilities as nearer as possible to the people who need them most and to keep the cost as low as possible to make it affordable to the most who seek such services. It was the first private multi speciality hospital of that region and eventually became a household name for the people in and around Gajuwaka.
Soon (in 1993) it was shifted from a small rented building to a own sprawling 22,000 sq.feet hospital with 30 beds, built in an area of 3000 sq.yrds and designed by the renowned architectural farm, PADGRO Consultants, Chennai, to function as a model for hospitals of that size.
After a few years of appreciable and enviable success, (in 1999) RK Hospital played a key role in bringing the first full-fledged Cardiology and other Super-speciality services to VISAKHAPATNAM, and to the people of North Andhra and South Orissa, through CARE HOSPITALS by being a partner and promotor to their pioneering work.
Realizing the necessity for an advanced medical set up for the people of the industrial belt, RK Hospital is again upgraded recently (2013)to a 40,000 sq.ft, 50 bed Superspeciality centre to suit the present day needs and demands of the people. Now, it is offering services in all major multi and super-specialities including Critical Care (except interventional cardiology and CT surgery).
All through these years our mission and motto remained the same: To offer the best possible care for a least possible cost and to pass on all the benefits to our patients without giving a share to any middle men.
