The Diabetes service at the V.H.S. Hospital was initiated by Dr. Gopal Rabindranath in 1965. In 1967, Dr. C.V. Krishnaswami took over the reins as Honorary Consultant and Head of the Diabetes Department. His commitment and foresight of developing the diabetes service and training a team of similarly committed young doctors and paramedical personnel has helped it to grow into a centre of excellence of National and International repute, known equally for both patient care as well as the academic research activities.
In India/Chennai VHS Diabetes Department stands out for the comprehensive freemedicare of young people with insulin dependent diabetes (Type I Diabetes). This has been possible because of massive support from the members of Voluntary Health Services, Philantropists, Industrialists, Voluntary Organizations and various individuals. The comprehensive lifetime free medicare being provided by the department is due to the dedicated team of doctors and the support personnel, who include lab technologists, Diat Counsellors, Diabetes educators, social workers and nurses etc.
