The Concept

“Aster MIMS, a NABH accredited hospital is a 673-bedded multi specility care center delivering an entire range of preventive, acute and outpatient services. The hospital, located in the heart of city of Kozhikode in Kerala is ideal for people seeking treatment from various ailments, not only because of its superiority in infrastructure but also because of its commitment in operating with the highest standards of safety, cleanliness, integrity and honesty. There is absolutely no substitute for good health, and health of the people is the first priority for Aster MIMS.

With Level IV Trauma Care centre, Advanced Interventional Radiology, sophisticated intensive care facilities and the best blood bank in the district, thanks to its component separation facility feature, MIMS continuously strives to provide the best all-round care. All the care centres in the hospital are fully equipped with the latest technological brilliance aiding in complete and comprehensive treatment of patients.”


One of the best for the patients

“The doctors at MIMS aim to alleviate the discomfort of patients by installing a technologically brilliant solution for recording and retrieving discharge summaries. Thanks to this system, doctors can dictate multiple summaries at any given point of time, thereby eliminating the “dreary wait” that most patients have to endure once the doctor discharges them. MIMS has also been credited with the Excellence Award-2010 for its pollution control endeavors. The Pollution Control Board (PCB) initiated the award.”
