Edappal Hospitals – Group and Hospital
In the year 1985, Dr. K. K. Gopinathan and his close aids decided to establish a hospital in the small town of Edappal, north Kerala. Having worked in the government service since 1974, he understood the growing demand for quality health care. Though the foundation stone was laid in 1986, his commitments to the government service delayed the project until it opened in January 1990.
With a humble beginning and limited number of 25 beds, it soon grew to be the landmark in the locality with having the most advanced medical technology and efficient doctors. Today, Edappal Hospital boasts of over 350 beds and numerous departments ranging from cardiology to dentistry. The hospital was the first to get an ISO certification in the district of Malappuram and has won several awards for pollution control from the Government of State of Kerala.
Under the guidance of Dr. Gopinathan, his department grew to be one of the largest in the state delivering over 400 babies every month. A team of over 15 gynecologists and the most advanced technology ensures one of the best patient care facilities in the country.
