Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah – Chairman-cum-Managing Director

Dr. Borah is a renowned neurologist, founder and Chairman-cum-Managing Director of GNRC Hospitals Ltd. Dr. Borah is an alumnus of AIIMS, New Delhi where he worked as a Senior Resident and obtained his DM degree in Neurology. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology (FAAN). Dr. Borah has also completed Graduate Summer Course in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the University of Michigan, USA. In three decades since its inception, GNRC, ably led by Dr. Borah, emerged as the first super specialty healthcare centre in Northeast India and has grown consistently to reach a stage today where the institution treats over 100,000 people annually. Concerned that most private healthcare facilities, including those set up by him, were unaffordable for the majority of the population, while public healthcare facilities were over-burdened, Dr. Borah initiated determined efforts to formulate a model that enabled access to quality, affordable healthcare for the majority of the population. He conducted numerous conversations with members of the local communities, in the attempt to understand the challenges they face in accessing affordable, quality healthcare. These conversations led to the formulation of an operating and service delivery model, which found its expression in GNRC Institute of Medical Sciences, which commenced operations in early 2014 at North Guwahati.
