The last few years has seen revolutionary changes in the field of emergency medicine in India. It has evolved from the "MBBS doctor/CMO" managed casualty to ER managed by trained Emergency Medicine Physicians. Amrita Hospital has been the torch bearer of this change with the first 3 year postgraduate training program (MD-Emergency Medicine) in Kerala. The Department of Emergency Medicine has grown into a reputed center for emergency care in India.
The department is visited by more than 25,000 patients per year.
|Triage Area / Observation Area||18|
|Adult Resuscitation Area||6|
|Neonatal Resuscitation Area||1|

These are just a few highlights from the nearly 200 critically ill patients whom we transport every month.
All equipped ambulances are fully air-conditioned, spacious and with meticulously designed interiors meeting international standards.
Salient Features Include :

The department has actively taken part in the rescue and rehabilitation efforts during all the natural disasters which happened in the recent past. Its role in the health care support provided during the Gujarat Earthquake, the Karnataka Tsunami, the Andhra Floods and the Uttarakhand Flood was pivotal. Our Ambulances and team were actively involved in the acute disaster management efforts.
