The founders of the hospital Dr. Muralikrishna Irwathraya and Dr. Vandana Irwathraya hail from the same place and have dedicated their service in serving the society through the hospital. Their zeal to provide quality healthcare in this rural setting has borne fruits and a constant OPD & IPD rush with a positive feedback from the patients is a testimonial to itself.

In addition to this was his parents (Mr. B. V. K. Irwathraya & Mrs. Shakunthala Irwathraya) who hail from a very respected background in the village insisted on such an effort in providing service to the mankind.

Heading to their advice Dr. Muralikrishna Irwathraya a meritorious student all through his basic education opted for the medical profession though hailing from a mediocre economical background and rural locality. He excelled in his education and later on established a small clinic in his native village Kakkinje at the foothills of Charmady a small village but beautiful and known for its natural surroundings. 

Later on the increased demand and the necessity of secondary and tertiary healthcare in the rural area to improve the quality of life as well as the need to avoid failure rates to avoid death and disability as the nearest facility at that time for higher care was about 70 Km's from the village he established Shri Krishna Hospital in Kakkinje. Added to this was is zeal for social service and betterment of the socioeconomically downtrodden which inspired him to give these services at a very reasonable cost maintaining the high standards of quality. 

After his Marriage with Dr. Vandana his strength and determination doubled owing to her similar interests in the field. Dr. Vandana Irwathraya as service minded as her husband and in-laws balances between assisting in the hospital's functioning as well as the family duties.

Together with a dedicated staff, state of the art facilities & unmatched service at all departments in the hospital today the small clinic has grown to an institute which is proudly appraised by the local inhabitants as well as the patients from distant places coming over from various districts and states.
