Amrita Kripa Hospitals

In addition to Amrita's flagship hospital, the 1450-bed, super-speciality hospital AIMS at Kochi, Amrita has also established several smaller satellite hospitals in semi-urban and rural areas to serve the local populace at those places. Students from the health sciences campus in Kochi are often posted to these hospitals, and doctors and other medical staff go to serve there as well.

The hospitals are linked to the 24/7 telemedicine service of AIMS Hospital. The technology allows transmission of patient's medical records including images, besides providing live two-way audio and video link, which in case of an emergency; enable a general practitioner at the health center to connect with a specialist from AIMS, who can give specific advice on the course of the treatment to follow.
