Under the initiative, Samsung would provide advanced healthcare equipment like digital ultrasound, x-ray machines, apart from LED TV, air conditioner and refrigerators to select government hospitals, a press release said.

A memorandum of understanding was signed between Samsung India and Department of Medical, Health and Family Welfare, Government of Tamil Nadu in November 2017. Chief Minister K Palaniswami at a function held in Coimbatore recently, formally launched the 15 Samsung Smart Health Centres in the State.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.
