Extending a Hand that Truly Cares

Since opening the doors of Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Centre (Amrita Hospital, our tertiary care hospital in Kochi, Kerala) in 1998, the Mata Amritanandamayi Math has provided more than ₹622.5 crore worth of charitable medical care; more than 43.3 lakh patients received completely free treatment. Amrita offers sophisticated and compassionate care in a serene and beautiful atmosphere, and is recognized as one of the premier hospitals in South Asia. Our commitment to serving the poor has attracted a dedicated team of highly qualified medical professionals from around the world. The 1,300-bed tertiary care hospital at Kochi houses 43 specialty departments.

Satellite Hospitals

Amrita Hospital runs five satellite charitable hospitals: three in Kerala(Amritapuri, Kalpetta, Njarakkal), one in Mysore, and one in the Andaman Islands. The hospitals serve populations that would otherwise not have easy access to quality healthcare. All treatment is given free of charge. Out of deep concern for the indigenous population, the doctors also make rounds to remote tribal hamlets.

Targeted public health initiatives
for troubled populations

We provide family-oriented health education, run both rural and urban health centers, and train government-employed community health workers. We have trained hundreds of tribal villagers in basic nursing, enabling them to promote health and hygiene in their villages. We are also working to increase awareness of diabetes, promote preventive measures and providing free insulin for poor patients. Additionally, 100 free health camps are held every year.

The new hospital and medical college will have an emphasis on maternal, infant and child healthcare and will include a highly specialized multidisciplinary Children’s Hospital with maternal and fetal medicine and all pediatric subspecialities. This is a feature that most hospitals in India lack as many private hospitals do not see maternal care as monetarily sustainable.
