- SIMS - SRM Institutes for MedicaI Science, Vadapalani, Celebrated its 1st Anniversary at the SIMS Hospital Campus Auditorium on the 14th November 2015

- Padma Vibhushan Viswanathan Anand was the Chief Guest for the day and Addressed the Gathering

Mr. Ravi Pachamoothoo, Chairman, SRM Group and Founder SIMS Hospital shared his joy on SIMS reaching this milestone, "When the SIMS Hospital Chennai journey began, we dreamt of transforming healthcare in Chennai by combining clinical outcomes with enriched patient experience. We introduced the institute concept, provided the best technology brought in like-minded gifted medical professionals and allowed them to choose their own teams to bring in sub-specialization. The combination, together with our ethos of empathy and patient-centric approach, has been responsible for the success we have achieved in just one year of operation. What we have achieved in one year, rest others would have taken a decade to do."
