25 years of doing the impossible

Twenty five years ago, we set out with a purpose. To do the impossible.

This was founded on an unshakable belief. That the impossible is what no one can do, only until someone does it.

In fact, every medical breakthrough once seemed an impossibility.

For twenty five years, at Amrita, we've been taking on the impossible. And doing it. Employing pioneering methods and techniques. Embracing ground-breaking practices and rapidly advancing technologies. Blazing trails all the time, for the rest to follow.

So that we keep on transforming the lives of people who come to us. Offering them care. Offering them hope. For a cure. For relief from pain. For a return home.

We keep on reshaping their future. Rewriting their life stories.

Driven by a will to overcome. And the courage to do the impossible.

Impossible is
what nobody can do.
Until someone does.

Every medical breakthrough once seemed an impossibility. Till someone took it on. At Amrita, we do what they think you cannot do. Because we take on challenges. And, as it happens, thrive on them.
Not surprisingly this has made for a series of firsts - in the state, in the country, and even in the continent.

Kerala’s first telemedicine centre started by us in September 2002. This was set up with the help of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The telemedicine unit also conducts tele-surgeries linking remote doctors with expert surgeons during the procedure—Amrita Hospital, Kochi was India’s first to carry this out.

On May 4, 2009, it became part of India’s PAN-African telemedicine network, thus extending its services beyond India’s borders. The goal of this initiative is to bring digital health to every doorstep. The network’s main objective is to eventually provide adequate educational facilities and affordable healthcare to 53 nations of the African Union.

Amrita Hospital

Through Amma’s unique vision and wisdom, we open the doors to India’s largest private hospital—an institution that will be an icon for compassionate care combined with affordable, advanced medical services.
