On the 17th of May 1998, Amrita Hospital was inaugurated by the then Prime Minister of India, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, in the presence of Her Holiness, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi.
Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (Amrita Hospital) has grown from a 115 bed specialty hospital to a 1300 bed super-specialty tertiary care health centre with an attached medical college hospital. This massive healthcare infrastructure with over 3,330,000 square feet of built-up area spread over 125 acres of land, supports a daily patient volume of about 3000 outpatients with 95 percent inpatient occupancy. Annual patient turnover touches an incredible figure of over 800,000 outpatients and nearly 50,000 inpatients.
