Sankara Nethralaya Academy

The Sankara Nethralaya Academy, the academic arm of Sankara Nethralaya which has carved a niche for itself among Health care and Hospital Management professionals with its trailblazing courses in these subjects like MBA in Hospital & Healthcare Management, Certificate Course in Hospital Management and Post Graduate program in Optical Retail Management, launched the ‘Certificate Course in Hospital Financial Management (CCHFM)’ a highly specialized course to enable finance personnel, administrators and planners of healthcare institutions to better analyze financial data and understand the implications of financial performance of their institutions, the nuances of financial management, ranging from Accounting and Finance to planning and budget reviews and reporting financial outcomes, on the 6th of July 2013 at the Lecture Hall, Sankara Nethralaya main campus. The course was flagged off with a brief introduction to its relevance, scope and the faculty member who would be handling it, by Srimathi Akila Ganesan, Registrar, the Sankara Nethralaya Academy. Speaking on the occasion she observed that Financial Management assumes vital importance in the field of healthcare as it decides the cost of Medicare to the patients and the bottom line to the hospital which delivers it. She added that quite often the management of finance and planning in health care institutions was done arbitrarily by non finance personnel and how the emergence of this sector as a highly competitive one underlined the need for a more professional approach to the subject. She introduced Shri PR. Ravindran, former Chief General Manager, Sankara Nethralaya as a highly experienced and seasoned financial professional with long years of experience in diverse areas of financial management in the manufacturing, service and health care sectors.

The program to be conducted on a weekend pattern on Saturdays between 3:00pm to 6:00pm for a duration of 12 weeks was well received with senior management personnel like Senior Director and Senior Manager from reputed healthcare institutions in the city enrolling in it.
