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.
