Sri. Jayachandran Thambi shifted the clinic to a 2 Bed Rooms accommodation at Kambar Street in 1993 and Doctor was made available for consultation for 3 Hrs ever day.

The need for own building arose and land was allotted by MMDA in the year 2000 when Rtn. Antony Ashok Kumar was President , Rtn. G. Vellaisamy was Secretary , Rtn. A.P.Nair was Treasurer. The initial payment for the land was made by Rtn. Sv. Rm. Ramanathan and further installments were paid by the Club. The Hospital building was constructed with funds given by Rtn. Sv.Rm. Ramanathan and the Hospital started functioning from 2003 when Rtn. G. Vellaisamy was President.
