Dr. Radha S. Murthy

Co-Founder & Managing Trustee, Nightingales Medical Trust

Dr. Radha S. Murthy, an alumnus of St. John's Medical College, Bangalore has a brilliant academic career to her credit.

An eminent doctor with over 30 years of medical experience, she is also a recipient of the 2003 Rajyotsava Award conferred by the State of Karnataka in recognition of her services.

From the very beginning, she believed in practicing medicine with a difference, having a personalized, holistic, and need-based approach.

While serving in a hospital, she was looking for uncovered areas and gaps in the medical system in India.  Moved by the plight of elders and the disabled who have difficulty in visiting hospitals, she started Nightingales Home Health Services in January 1996 to provide all possible medical care at the doorstep.

While providing home medical care, she had close contact with elders and identified their problems and the need for specialized care and facilities for the growing number of Elders.

She strongly believes that elders should remain an integral part of their family

In 1998 she founded Nightingales Medical Trust, a registered public charity, with the main objective of elder’s welfare and she is serving as a Managing Trustee.
