Healthcare in Ooty

A few years back there have been concerns about requirements and shortage in availability of medical resources in this hill station. There has been regular governmental intervention in facilitating the town with number of hospitals and extending the facilities to the remotest corners of town. The initiatives have played a significant role in making advanced medical care available even to underprivileged sections of the city.  

A major part of Ooty’s population comprises of tribals, hence the government faces the challenge of reaching out to them. Vehicles equipped with Doctors, Nurses, Laboratory staff and chemist visit remote areas every 15 days. Healthcare outcomes in the district of Nilgiris as whole have significantly improved in comparison to other cities of India.
