For me, Aster MIMS is an answer to the health care needs of a growing population across northern Kerala, promising a comprehensive, caring and cost-effective medical treatment of world-class quality. And, we achieve it through a team of highly qualified and committed medical professionals supported by the most advanced medical technologies. Aiming a better tomorrow in the field of medical science, the centre supports advanced medical education and research.

At Aster MIMS, we ensure an ethical medical practice, upholding the philosophy that profit must only be a by-product rather than an aim, in the field of health care. Our social responsibility is reflected in our deeds supporting the underprivileged by providing free or subsidized medical treatment.

In all earnestness, I would like to make a simple promise to all our stake holders - patients, doctors, employees and everyone directly and indirectly associated with Aster MIMS – We’ll Treat You Well, in every way possible.<

Best regards,
Dr. Azad Moopen MD
