Established in 1954, this Hospital complex is, perhaps,
the first of its kind where all the classical panchakarma
and Kerala special preparatory therapies were made
available to patients in an organised manner under
the umbrella of a modern Hospital facility. It started
functioning on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee
celebrations of Arya Vaidya Sala. This Hospital
evolved and established modern standards of quality
and operational procedures for the classical therapies.
It is recognised now as a model referral Hospital.
It expanded in size and reach during its very fruitful
existence in the past five decades. It has now four
blocks consisting of different types of accommodation
including suites, A/c and non A/c flats, double
/ single rooms etc. It is located in a salubrious
environment with a view of the typical Kerala greenery
around it. Many are the celebrities, dignitaries
and national and international personalities who
came to Kottakkal and stayed at this Hospital to
receive genuine classical Ayurveda therapy. Presently,
about 30% of the patients coming for solace at this
Hospital are from abroad; mostly from the West European,
Middle East and North American countries. The Hospital
celebrated its 50th anniversary of service to ailing
humanity. Celebrated professionals like Dr. M.S.
Valiathan, Acharya Sriram Sharma, Justice Paripoornan
were among those who spoke on the occasion.
All activities right from consultation/registration to discharge are
computerised and thus in a position to deliver quality service and attention at
all times. Internet facility is also made available in the campus itself. The
same is provided in selected VIP rooms based on request.
There is an Internet Cafe in the campus itself where
the patients can surf at a nominal rate and also
keep in touch with friends and relatives while in
hospital through e-mail. The Internet Cafe which
is open from 3.00 p.m. to midnight would provide
an additional channel of effective communication
and a prompt source of information on global level.
