Shanmuga Hospital was one of the pioneering Multispecialty Hospitals in Salem, Tamil Nadu.

Since 1981, Salem Cancer Institute (SCI) was established. It was the first Cancer hospital considering about 8 districts surrounding Salem. The hospital had 50 beds and all the necessary equipments and infrastructure for best quality patient care.

With an intention to provide full-fledged Medical services, Thirumigu Vanavasi P.Shanmugam and Dr.P.S.Panneerselvam established Shanmuga Medical Research Foundation Trust (SMRFT) in 1996.

In the year 1998, Shanmuga Institute of Post Graduate Medical Sciences (SIMS) was established for contributing qualified healthcare professionals to the field of Medicine. SIMS is affiliated to Dr.M.G.R. Medical University.
