Built on the foundation of its values, Thangam Hospital is inextricably intertwined with its Corporate Conscience. Here, we strive every day, both as individuals, and as a team, to establish and uphold policies and philanthropic structures that on the one hand gives back to society, and on the other, drives the vision for a clean, green, symbiotic, and sustainable future.

Keeping in mind that businesses have a unique opportunity to give back to the community, in ways that amplify the intentions of the company as well as its employees, our projects and community initiatives span key areas including Education, Medical Aid and Assistance, Energy Conservation, Recycling, Public Awareness and Opportunity Creation in an area where employability remains an overwhelming challenge.

Internally too, our code of conduct emphasizes integrity, moral responsibility, maintaining the highest standard of ethics and carefully analysing the outcomes of any and every action, always keeping in mind the butterfly effect these acts may have.

We transform lives, communities and the planet by making human connections, inspiring cumulative action and networking to take on the toughest challenges – the things that matter.

ANTENATAL CLASSES

The most crucial thing for any mother-to-be, is the safe delivery of a healthy child. At Thangam Hospital, we prepare young mothers for childbirth by imparting to them, everything they need to know to care for the life growing inside them, making pregnancy a tranquil and joyful experience.

Babies’ growth in the womb and their size at birth, especially their length, are strikingly similar the world over when they are born to healthy, well-educated and well-nourished mothers. Oxford University research involving almost 60,000 pregnancies have demonstrated that a mothers’ educational, health and nutritional status during pregnancy are directly proportional to their babies’ chances of healthy growth, both in the womb and after.

At Thangam Hospital we provide antenatal classes that are open to all mothers-to-be, free of cost, and we encourage anyone with the slightest interest or query to attend. Every month expert doctors conduct these classes for pregnant women covering the topics below, besides also addressing any questions or fears that they may have.


  • Stages Of Pregnancy
  • Common Problems
  • Diet During Pregnancy
  • Growth Of The Baby
  • Excises During Pregnancy
  • Things A Father Should Know
  • Preparation For The Day Of Delivery
  • Post-Delivery Care.

These classes have been instrumental in educating expecting couples, as well as in avoiding complications both during and after delivery.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION

The effective way to potentially reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials and to prevent the wastage of useful items is to segregate and recycle everything which can be used further in the same form or in any other useful manner. This reduces the generation of waste and in turn saves the environment from pollution.

At Thangam we take special care to segregate and classify our waste into various categories, to ensure maximum recyclability and environment-friendly disposal either directly or indirectly, through various means.

  • We maintain strict protocol and ensure that there is stringent segregation of biomedical, hazardous and harmful waste which is collected and incinerated separately, in adherence with public health policy.
  • We live in a world where the use of plastic in certain areas has become more or less inevitable. At Thangam however, in an effort to counter this, we have a strict segregation policy wherein we classify waste into four categories – paper, plastic, glass and organic waste – each of which is routinely and regularly collected and dispatched for recycling.
  • Organic waste – specifically waste from our canteen, gardens and estate – is collected and directed to a Bio Gas plant with a one-time capacity of over 3000 cubic metres, on campus, on a daily basis, reducing our consumption of LPG, and in turn, our carbon footprint, by over 25 percent.

LEARNING DISABILITY CLINIC

Learning Disability Camp

MEDICAL CAMPS

Thangam Hospital conducts regular Medical Camps in and around Palakkad particularly around its most remote and rural borders, where education and dissemination of information, along with poverty, malnourishment and inequity remain a significant challenge.

In an attempt to create general awareness about wellness, hygiene and healthcare, qualified doctors and nurses reach out to people, many of whom have never even encountered a healthcare specialist before, and volunteer their time, advice and services. Mild disorders are diagnosed, free samples of prescription medicine are distributed to the needy, and those with serious disorders are referred for further treatment. These camps also help us evaluate the general health status of specific demographics - data that is often invaluable, when networking to garner support for healthcare initiatives with a social commitment.

SOLAR ENERGY

In order to create an equitable and just society – one with avenues for asset building, enhancement in quality of life, and wealth creation through provision of sustainable energy to the under-served, look towards the sun. For when the future becomes solar, the sky will be the limit.

At its simplest, solar energy ensures a reliable, affordable and ever-renewable source of energy that can be harnessed in multiple ways while simultaneously preserving precious, fast depleting fossil fuels that are not just increasingly scarce and ill-affordable to the majority, but also a major cause for pollution and global warming.

For several years now, Thangam has been a green hospital, generating its own solar power, leading to significant reductions in our total consumption of electricity.

WATER CONSERVATION

With the rate of water-use growing at more than twice the rate of population increase in the last century, water scarcity already affects every continent and an increasing number of regions are chronically short of water. Wastage, pollution and unsustainable management of freshwater sources means that despite there being enough water on the planet to comfortably sustain us all, over a billion people in the developing world do not have access to it. On the one hand time and human potential is wasted attempting to source potable water, and on the other we lose millions of lives every year to drought or water-borne diseases.

In the face of ever increasing demands on limited water supply, and skyrocketing costs and efforts to build or maintain access to hygienic water sources, the issue of conserving water, minimizing all kinds of wastage, recycling it wherever possible and re-using it as best as possible becomes a social, political and ethical responsibility that starts at an individual level.

In an effort to contribute to what is fast becoming a global crisis, treating and recycling water so that it may be used repeatedly, and in various ways, is something that we take very seriously at Thangam. An in-house Sewage Treatment Plant works round the clock to collect used and waste water from various parts of the hospital for treatment, and the treated water is in turn, used to maintain our gardens and vast estate. This same water also aids in the tree plantation drives that we undertake on campus every year, so that both the hospital grounds as well as its immediate surroundings, remain lush and green.

By the end of 2014, we intend to have also perfected the internal infrastructure required to harvest and store rain-water every monsoon, which may then be salvaged through recycling.
