Western Lobby

The space between Meditex Hall and Auditorium is enclosed and roofed to form a hall  in November 2013,  Contributed by Dr J. K.Periaswamy  and named as “ Western Lobby”,




The earlier built   portions of the buildings getting worn  out and dilapidated,  a suitable auditorium-  to meet the growing needs of the members and activities of the association demanded first attention. Members also felt  long ago that they should do some suitable  and specialised service to the public through the association instead of crowding in hospital temporarily.  With this also in view the 2nd plot was acquired. Giving effect to this and also as the public expect this much of service in return. Keeping all this in view the present Auditorium was built in 1995 -1996 with a capacity for 350 people.

Foundation stone was laid by His Excellency Dr.Khurana,Governer of Tamilnadu, on 8th March,1986, Presided by Dr.H.V.Hande, Honorable  Minister for family Welfare and Health, during the period of Dr.G.Bhakthavatsalam, President   and Dr.M.G.Pai   Hony.Secretary

Shopping Complex

However it was soon realised that the building was grossly inadequate, for the need of the members.  The scientific deliberations of the association needed greater facilities.  It was also a fact that there were few places available in the city for conducting Technical and Scientific deliberations. Members felt the need for a modern auditorium and office.

In the meanwhile the industrial expansion exploded to make Coimbatore the 2nd largest city  in Tamilnadu , next to Chennai and by the continued expansion of the city all around , formed the premises of the Association , ideally situated , accessible but not crowded. Ours is a place away from the buzz of machines and right on a main artery of communication.   Hence the idea exploded that the land could be exploited beneficially amongst the members and a committee was formed to explore the ways and means to build the auditorium.  In order to maintain the auditorium one need a regular cash flow.  So it was planned to have a shopping complex.    

Foundation stone laid  both for shopping Complex and the auditorium over it,    on 12/ 09/1982 by Thiru Cavlier G.K.Devarajulu  during the period of Dr.M.Suryanrayanan as President  and Dr.M.V.Audithyan as Hon.Secretary. A building committee was formed to complete the project

Rajarathnam, Dr.K.R.Venkatesalu, Dr.T.K.Ganesan  Dr.S.SriHari  and Dr, M.V.Audithyan  (Honorary Secretary- Ex-officio)as members of the building committee.

The work started on 17.04.83 and completed on 12.09.1983 Area of shopping Complex 5730 sq.ft (Ground floor) built, with 13 shops each measuring 10’x30’, and provision for Auditorium 66’x30’ Pre function hall 33’x30’ and Free hall 33’x30’)in the first floor given. The Shopping complex was opened by Padmabushan, Thiru Dr.N.Mahalingam on 17.09.1983 – President Dr.M.Suryanarayanan.   Architect and Engineers –Mr.T.S.Ramanishankar and Mr.Rajaram of M/S Shankar Raja ram Associates.
