Details :

Air Vice Marshal Trichinapoly Subramanyam Raghu Raman (12664) Med was commissioned on 26 Jan 71. In 36 years of distinguished service, he has held several command and staff appointments that include Associate Professor at Armed Forces Medical College, AOC at an Air Force Hospital (AFH), Principal Medical Officer (PMO) at HQ EAC and currently as Commandant, Command Hospital Air Force Bangalore (CHAFB). For his outstanding performance in the Advance Course in Paediatrics, he was awarded the CNS Medal in 1979.

Whilst commanding the AFH Johrat, he conceptualised and created a medical evaluation centre and thereby immensely benefited both the service and civil aircrew of the entire North East region. As PMO at EAC, he integrated the functional aspects of AFH, Hashimara and Military Hospital, Binaguri and thus the scarce specialist medical care was made available even in the most peripheral Air Force units.

Having excelled in the field of Paediatrics and with vast teaching experience, he has many publications in national journals to his credit and has been a guest speaker in many national seminars. In 2001 as Head of the Paediatrics Department, he brought honour when for the first time in services, the CHAFB was recognised as the 'Baby Friendly Hospital' by the Breast Promotion Network of India and UNICEF.

On taking over as Commandant of CHAFB on 01 Jan 06, he restructured the organisation and provided purpose and direction to the personnel. This in turn has facilitated exponential growth in patient care related activities like the implementation of an unique single window concept of health care for outdoor patients, creation of an all exclusive Diabetic Ward for enhanced patient care, introduction of Battery Operated Vehicle for conveying the patients and the introduction of an innovative multi rack cargo van to counter to the challenging task of food distribution at the patients' bedside. Under his command, the work services has witnessed a rapid growth and culminated in the creation of an ultra modern MRI centre, Accident and Emergency Centre, Blood Component Manufacturing Unit and mega renovation of the Auditorium while other projects like Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory, Radio Therapy Unit and Married Accommodation are nearing completion. He ingeniously conceptualised and established a modern sports complex and children parks at two independent pockets even amidst the acute space constraints. He, with his foresight and vision, also meticulously provided the organ is ational support for the successful conduct of International Congress of Aviation and Space Medicine in Sep 06 and medical support for the Aero India 2006 at Yelahanka.

Air Vice Marshal Trichinapoly Subramanyam Raghu Raman has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
