Arun, the founder of Vasan Healthcare Group, took over the business in 1991 after the sudden demise of his father, established a diagnostic centre and laboratory and later founded two multi-speciality hospitals in Trichy. Dr. A.M. Arun started the group's first eye care hospital in 2002 in Trichy.[1]
