About Me

Welcome to my website, enjoy Your stay.

Born to Prof. Joseph Thomas & Gracy Joseph as second of their 3 sons at Kanakkari Village of Kottayam District Kerala State in South India on 21st of April 1979.

My schooling has stretched to 3 premier schools, beginning with Aphonsa School, Ratnagri to St Gregorios  School, Mannarrkunnu to the Emmanuals High School, Kothenalloor.

Competed Pre-degree and Graduation (B.Sc Zoology) form one of the oldest Colleges in India – CMS College, Kottayam.

The CMS College is the first college in Kottayam, Kerala, India. It was started by the Church Missionary Society, England, in 1817 when no institution existed in the then-Travancore state to teach English. The Rev. Benjamin Bailey was the first principal of The College, COTTYM, as it was then called and spelt. The government welcomed the College as "a place of general education whence any demands of the state for officers to fill all departments of public service would be met".

I had a great OH.. while joining the CMS college… and was the sweatiest time in my life.. a great college.. great people.. great faculty… and indeed the finest friends I ever had…LOVE IT

After Graduation, joined the famous king Nandiwarman College of Science & Technology, Tellar in Tamil Nadu for M.Sc Microbiology.

To my fortune and/or misfortune, I had to discontinue the course and joined School of Medical Education under Mahatma Gandhi University for Master of Science in Medical Documentation.

The University campus is located at the Priyadarsini Hills which is 13 Kilometers away from Kottayam Railway Station and 4 Kilometers away from Ettumannoor. Mahatma Gandhi University has made its presence outside its territorial jurisdiction through the 72 off campus centres – 55 centres within Kerala, 9 outside Kerala and at 8 global locations.

Completed the course in the year 2002 and joined the leading private hospital in PUNE (POONA) the Jehangir Hospital – a 300 bedded multidisciplinary, super speciality as Head of the Medical Records Department in the month of May 2002.

Jehangir Hospital (Apollo Hospitals Group):

Established in 1946 the Jehangir Hospital today stands as an institution renowned for the medical excellence and dedication of its consultants and the care and compassion of its staff.

The hospital establishing itself as a tertiary care hospital of the highest repute and is accredited by NABH (National Accreditation Board of Hospitals and Healthcare Providers)

This was the first Cardiology service in Pune that had a full time team of eminent Cardiologists and Cardiac Surgeons attached to it. The hospital offers reliable and high quality service that could handle even the most complicated cases, with results matching international standards.

The tie-up with the Apollo Hospital Group, effected in 1998, is an association where the Apollo Group has undertaken to manage the Hospital along Modern, Professional lines.

Later, moved to Bombay by receiving the post of Medical Records Officer at Advanced Center for Treatment, Research & Education in Cancer- a satellite research cum clinical centre of the legendry Tata Memorial Centre (Tata Memorial Hosital- Bombay).

Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC):

Is the state-of-the-art R&D satellite of the Tata Memorial Centre (TMC), which also includes under its umbrella the Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH), the largest cancer hospital in Asia. ACTREC has the mandate to function as a national centre for treatment, research and education in cancer. TMC is an autonomous grant-in-aid institution of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India. Its Governing Council is headed by the Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission, Government of India.

Being promoted to the grade of Scientific Officer (Medical Records Officer), moved to the main hospital – the TATA MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, Parel, Mumbai.

Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai

The Tata Memorial Hospital is situated in Parel, Mumbai in India. It is a specialist cancer treatment and research centre, closely associated with the Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC).

This hospital is also one of the few in India to have a P.E.T. scanner. The Tata Memorial Centre is the national comprehensive cancer centre for the prevention, treatment, education and research in Cancer and is recognized as one of the leading cancer centres in this part of the world.

The Tata Memorial Hospital was initially commissioned by the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust on 28 February 1941 as a center with enduring value and a mission for concern for the Indian people.

In 1952 the Indian Cancer Research Centre was established as a pioneer research institute for basic research—later called the Cancer Research Institute (CRI). In 1957 the Ministry of Health took over the Tata Memorial Hospital. The transfer of the administrative control of the Tata Memorial Centre (Tata Memorial Hospital & Cancer Research Institute) to the Department of Atomic Energy in 1962 was the next major milestone. The Tata Memorial Hospital and Cancer Research Institute merged as the two arms of the Tata Memorial Centre (TMC) in 1966 as a classic example of private philanthropy augmented by Government support with a mandate for Service, Education & Research in Cancer.

The lucrative offer of an overseas job compelled me to accept the offer of the Post of Medical Coder at Saad Specialist Hospital, Al-Khobar, KSA. It is owned and operated by the Saad Group.

The Hospital was founded as Saad Specialist Clinic on 1997, although their first patient was only admitted in 2001. It has a 600 bed capacity.

Saad Specialist Hospital has received accreditation from the Joint Commission International (JCI), The Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation (CCHSA), and The Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International (ACHSI).

 

 

 

 

To support my family during an extreme crisis situation, returned home and later joined the Alchemist Hospitals Limited @ Panchkula district in Haryana as Head of Medical Records Department.

Alchemist Hospitals Limited

The Alchemist stands not just for care, it attained a more humane form with the setting up of the Alchemist Multi-Specialty hospital, offering the best in health care. We are working here with a single-minded focus of making lives better. 

I can’t forget the great help & support extended to me by Dr. Vishal Goyal the then AVP of Alchemist Hospitals Limited (AHL) during my initial days at Alchemist. He was indeed a great team player @ Tata Memorial Centre (ACTREC) which we a all have appreciated during my tenure at ACTREC. It will be reprehensible, if I forget the support and care extended to me by Dr. Ashish Banerji, the ex COO of Alchemist Hospitals Limited, during his very short but remarkable tenure @ Alchemist.

He is one of the finest souls I have ever met in my life, the motivation and inspiration he extended not only to me but also to the entire AHL family was unparalleled.
