Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences

Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS), based in Kochi, Kerala, India, is recognized as one of the premier hospitals in South Asia. Our commitment to affordable quality care has attracted a dedicated team of highly qualified medical professionals and other healthcare professionals from across the world to provide the highest standards of medical treatment.

Founded in 1998 by Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (known worldwide as AMMA), Amrita Hospital offers a full range of primary and specialty care medical services, with cross-specialty consultation. AMMA’s vision of providing advanced medical care to the poor and disadvantaged was the inspiration for Amrita Hospital, which today is a 1100-bed (490 units) tertiary referral and teaching hospital, serving more than 1.0 million outpatients and more than 70,000 inpatients annually. The massive healthcare infrastructure with over 3.33 million sq. ft. of built-up area, spread over 125 acres of land, supports a daily patient volume of approximately 3500 outpatients with 95 percent inpatient occupancy. There are 12 super specialty departments, 45 other departments, 4500 support staff and 670 faculty members.

The hospital’s extensive infrastructure offers facilities comprising 28 modern operating theatres, 275 equipped intensive-care beds, a fully computerized and networked Hospital Information System (HIS), a fully digital radiology department, 17 NABL accredited clinical laboratories and 24/7 telemedicine service.

In 2015, South Asia's first ever Bilateral Hand Transplant Surgery was done at Amrita Hospital. The same year, Amrita Hospital won the British Medical Journal Award for the Best Surgical Team in South Asia. The Amrita team won the award for its two successful double hand transplants, the first and the second bilateral hand transplants in this region. Previously, the hospital had won the National Healthcare Excellence Award for Best Hospital (CSR Category) in India by FICCI in 2013 and British Medical Journal (BMJ) - India Healthcare Award for the Pediatric Heart Program in 2014. In 2016, Amrita Hospital won the coveted British Medical Journal Award for Infectious Disease Initiative of the Year and FICCI Healthcare Excellence Awards for Patient Safety and Innovation in Medical Technology.

Amrita features one of the most advanced hospital computer networks in India. The network supports more than 2800 computers and has computerized nearly every aspect of patient care including all patient information, lab testing and radiological imaging.

Amrita Hospital offers a total and comprehensive healthcare solution comparable to the best hospitals in the world. The most recent additions are the DA VINCI SURGICAL ROBOTIC SYSTEM; ROSA, the latest generation in robotic neurosurgery assistance; the MAKO ROBOTIC-ARM ASSISTED TECHNOLOGY which is transforming the way joint replacement surgeries are being performed; a CyberKnife M6 and Tomotherapy for the most precise radiotherapy available today; the GE Voluson E10 4D ultrasound system for spectacular 2D and 3D/4D images; a Philips 256 slice iCT scanner; a PET-3Tesla MRI scanner which is extremely useful for early detection of cancer; and the Digital Pathology Solution, a virtual microscope which digitizes lab slides which more accurately help clinicians in better, faster, cheaper diagnosis and prediction of diseases.
