Ayurvedic Hospital and Research Center
The Hospital complex at Kottakkal has six treatment blocks consisting of 204 accommodation units with a capacity to extend IP services to 300 patients. These blocks consist of spacious and comfortable double rooms and single rooms and wards, all equipped and furnished on modern lines with telephone facilities.
Established in 1954, this Hospital complex is, perhaps, the first of its kind where all the classical Panchakarma and Kerala special 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 more than six decades. It has now six 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.
All activities right from consultation/registration to discharge are managed by a Hospital Management Software System which facilitates quality service and personal attention to all in-patients.
The entire campus is W-Fi enabled where the patients can surf at a nominal rate and also keep in touch with friends and relatives while in hospital. This would help provide an additional channel of effective communication and a prompt source of information on global level.
There are two well-equipped canteens attached to the Hospital, serving pure vegetarian dishes for the benefit of the in-patients. In addition to North Indian and South Indian dishes, Chinese dishes are also served. Special Thali meals designed specially for patients are also available.
A general library is functioning in the hospital at Kottakkal for the benefit of the patients and bystanders. Its collection includes books of general interest as well as professional literature.
There is a sprawling garden with well-designed pathways located in the Hospital premises. Patients and bystanders can spend their leisure time there.
