At the time of first visit of the patient, to the Institute, for consultation, the patient’s details are filled in a registration form at the Main Reception / Registration Counter. The Patient will receive a registration card with his/her CR. No. (Central Registration Number), which is unique for each patient.

We create your medical records with this Central Registration Number, update and preserve it with utmost care and confidentiality. This number enables speedy retrieval of your medical records and data, each time you pay a visit to your doctor for consultation or need to be admitted for treatment.


Admissions may be in two ways : OPD & Casualty
