KLES Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital & Medical Research Centre, in collaboration with the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC) brings together a dedicated team of physicians, surgeons and healthcare specialists to provide healthcare and hospitality under one roof, thus giving it a perfect academic-and-professional blend.
With its foundation stones laid way back in 1996, this hospital is now spread across an all encompassing 16-acre of land in the outskirts of the city and is blessed with facilities that satisfy all needs in any discipline of health sciences.
This hospital has adapted itself to the need of the hour and hence upgraded itself to the technology thus proving its progress. This hospital has already been regarded as the best in the world of healthcare and hospitals backed with recognition from the Government of Goa (under its various schemes), industries in Maharashtra, Karnataka, thus reflecting the hospital’s growth in terms of caliber, specialty services, and economic benefits.
To provide quality healthcare through Team Work, Education and Research with Integrity, Commitment and Compassion.
Today, we are passing through difficult times. Options are very limited before us. Let us, therefore, opt for working honestly, truly and with full dedication. This is what precisely the K.L.E. Society stands for.
As the Chairman of the K.L.E. Society, I invite you all, my brothers and sisters, to join me in my endeavour to achieve good progress for the prosperity of one and all.
I dare not say that I have done great many things for you. What I have done is precious little and what I should do shall be much more. I need your help and moral support to accomplish my task of building a responsible Society around you and me.
It is not that I am alone, but there are people around me. I am rather proud to say that I have the Members of the Board of Management who are standing solidly behind me. There are Life Members, dedicated members of the staff and students who always work both directly and indirectly to help me in the fulfillment of the ambitious schemes that I have planned for the K.L.E. Society.
Let me invite co-operation from the general public and good wishes from the friends and relatives. Let my staff be disciplined, the rich be philanthropic and the Government be extending the liberal support. With all this as mine, I shall rededicate myself to do something for which the K.L.E. Society has stood for, all these ninety four years.

All Research Activities are performed in our associate college J. N. Medical College, Belgaum.
Students are trained to assess qualitative as well as quantitative aspects of patient’s behavior responses.
Students are exposed to the concepts of research methodology and presentation of scientific material. Referring to the appropriate sources from the journals and more recently internet access, a fair idea of results in comparable situation from other resources is obtained. On the basis of such information it is reasonable to convince the patient to participate in the treatment programme on ground realities.
This process also opens the new vistas from the related research in the field under the guidance of faculty members.
