Dr. V. N. Krishna Iyer

        Dr V.N.Krishna Iyer, on his return to India after higher studies in England, found the medical facilities in Thrissur (then Trichur) woefully inadequate. People had to travel to Ernakulum or Coimbatore even for basic investigations. With a visionary zeal, he decided to address this deficiency by starting a medial institution. He was farsighted, thinking of such a venture long back. He was selfless, starting a private limited company rather than going for money-making venture owned by himself. Thus, in 1948, was born the POLYCLINIC, one of the oldest corporate medical institutions in the country. The following members constituted the first board of directors.
