Apollo Hospitals to open hospital in Kochi, India

Apollo Hospitals is expanding its network of hospitals with its foray into India's southern most state of Kerala with a 250-bed facility close to Kochi city.

Apollo Hospitals is expanding its network of hospitals with its foray into India’s southern most state of Kerala with a 250-bed facility close to Kochi city.

To open the hospital, the group has signed an operations and management agreement with Adlux Group, which will serve as infrastructure partner, reported The Economic Times.

Apollo Hospitals will be responsible for the operations and management of the hospital.

This hospital will be located close to Kochi International Airport.

To be called as Apollo Adlux hospital, it will commence operations in four to six months.

Out of the 250 beds, the  hospital will have 50 beds allocated only for critical care.

It will initially begin services as a tertiary care hospital. An advanced oncology section is being planned during the next expansion phase.

The new hospital will be a part of the complex, which includes the Adlux’s convention and exhibition centre.

Adlux group promoter and director  Puzhekadavil Sudheesan told The Economic Times: “Proximity to the airport will be a major factor for the development of medical value tourism, as it will provide easy access, especially to patients from West Asia.”

Meanwhile, in collaboration with the state government, Apollo Hospitals will rebuild the infrastructure of primary healthcare centres (PHCs) damaged during the recent floods in Kerala.

This collaboration will see Apollo Hospitals rebuild the PHC at Kakkodi of Kozhikode district.
