On the 25th of May, 2003 the S K Hospital came into being, setting a new milestone in the health care field of Trivandrum City. The then Chief Minister Shri.A.K Antony, was the Chief Guest who inaugurated the Hospital. We were honoured by his presence and blessings.The institution has now completed 9 years of its existence but has grown up rapidly at the envy of other highly reputed and well known health care institutions of the city. It would not have been possible but for the relentless efforts by the founder Shri K.N. Sivankutty, whose vision and mission made it possible. Definitely, the growth of the Hospital is testimony to the dedication and hard work put in by the management coupled with unflinching support rendered by a team of committed medicos and other para-medical staff that facilitated a dream comes true. S K hospital stand apart from others by making the growth faster and maintaining a patient friendly rapport than any other institution can.
With a humble beginning, S K Hospital started with hardly 75 beds, focusing only on low and middle economic strata. Very few departments like General Medicine, Surgery, Gynaecology, Orthopaedics, Diabetology, Psychiatry, and 24 Hours Casualty were functional then. Among these, Diabetic department & De-addiction programmes became more prominent in the beginning. We started conducting various camps where patients were greatly benefitted and as a result it has developed into a Centre known as SK National Centre for Diabetics and so also is the case of De-addiction Centre. People from different districts in the State of Kerala come to our De-addiction Centre to avail this facility. Since it was mandatory to have ISO Accreditation, we worked hard for it during 2006. Finally we have obtained ISO Certification during 2007 January. This further enhanced our confidence in work style and pattern and to live up to the state of the art in the field.
Well known and experienced surgeons were added to our panel of doctors especially in Gynaecology & Obstetrics Department as well as Orthopaedics and equipped with most modern and sophisticated equipments to handle all kinds of gynaecological problems & ortho cases including knee replacements.Consequently, there has been an increasing trend among the general public to opt for SK Hospital for gynaec-related cases. Within 2 years our patient strength increased tremendously, where we found difficulty to accommodate all our patients. Thus we increased our strength of beds to 110 numbers,and later during 2011 to 250 beds.
Initially we had only 3 major OT`s to which we added 3 more OT`s and the expansion work completed in record time.Now we are confident to say that we provide 6 fully equipped major operation theatres with International Standards.
We have around 27 major departments as on date i.e. Cardiology, Urology, Neurology, Gynaecology & Neonatalogy, Paediatrics, General Medicine, Laparoscopic Surgery, Physiotherapy, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Dermatology, Dietary, Dialysis, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, ENT, General Surgery, Gastroenterology, Oncology, Oral & Maxillo Facial Surgery, Psychiatry & De-addiction, Dental Surgery, Nephrology, Allergy & Respiratory, Diabetology, Endocrinology & Metabolic Disorder etc.
Our OBG department is now known as "S K Centre for Healthy Mother and Baby" which is a much more modernized version than before.You can always avail the help of 24hrs lady doctors, nurses, Labour Room and an Operation theatre exclusively.Our 14bedded NICU is well structured, meeting the International Standards,placed adjacent to the labour room complex. It is a complete `Mother & Baby Health Care Centre’ now.
All our major departments are ready with Emergency Team to take up any high risk cases 24x7.
We have reacently shaped up our urology department,in such a way that we could do all the possible urology related surgeries in our hospital.
It is a matter of immense pleasure and satisfaction to note that people from all walks of life, irrespective of cast, creed or religion, are now looking towards SK Hospital for their Health Care needs. This is no mean achievement for an institution which was established just 9 years ago. We are greatly indebted to the populace in the Capital and adjoining districts for the confidence they have reposed on us which actually energise us to present still better performance and scale further heights!
