Aster DM to open a 550-bed super-specialty hospital in Trivandrum

Listed private healthcare service provider has launched a 550-bed super-specialty hospital in Kerala’s capital city Trivandrum, the company said in a press release on Friday.

The company said it will be investing around Rs 500 crore for the entire project, with the first phase having a capacity of 350 beds. The first phase is expected to be operational by FY26.

This would be the company’s 7th Hospital in Kerala and the 16th in India.

This super-specialty facility will house several centres for clinical excellence that will cater to the functions of cardiac sciences, organ transplant, neurosciences, orthopaedics, oncology, urology & nephrology, gastro sciences, and woman & child wellness, the company said.

The hospital will offer OPD, IPD, ICU including high dependency units, NICU, PICU and transplant ICU, day-care support and 24 hours trauma & emergency response services. Robotics and new generation systems would be introduced gradually, the company said.

“Aster Capital at Thiruvananthapuram has been conceived as a comprehensive facility that will deliver primary to quaternary healthcare to the people of the region. It has been a long-cherished dream of Aster DM Healthcare to be in the capital city to make quality healthcare at an affordable cost accessible to the population,” Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare said.

“This will increase our footprint not only in Kerala but across India with over 4500 beds in the country. We hope that the Aster Capital Hospital will become a destination for the highest quality healthcare in the country attracting medical professionals and patients to the state from abroad providing facilities at par with global standards,” he added.
