History of the SUT Group of Hospitals
Sree Uthradom Thirunal Hospital was inaugurated by E. K. Nayanar, then chief minister of Kerala, in 1987, at a time when tertiary care facilities were extremely inadequate in this part of the country. The main aim of the hospital was to establish such advanced medical and surgical facilities one by one.
The hospital was started with full facilities for Interventional Cardiology and Open Heart Surgery. The first coronary artery bypass surgery on beating heart in Kerala was done here. The first Mitral valvuloplasty was done here as well in 1988, three years after its introduction.
SUT Group started its second hospital, SUT Mother & Baby Hospital, at Pattom in 2001. It is devoted to high standards of care in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Neonatology.
A new SUT Royal Hospital was started near Ulloor in 2010.
SUT Group, under the Dr. K.N. Pai Heart Foundation had established a SUT Rural General Hospital at Vattappara, Nedumangad Municipality, to provide medical care at affordable costs. This hospital became the choice for the establishment of the new medical college, which is now being expanded to make it a center for the learning and practice of medicine. Currently, the hospital and campus is run by Sri. Kanchi Kamakoti Peetom Charitable Trust.
