The department of Emergency Medicine was established in 2016 under the eminent leadership of Dr. Ajith Venugopalan MBBS, MD (EM), PGDMLE, FACEE, FICM, Head of the Department. The department is capable of handling any case that comes in 24 x 7 with the help of other specialty and super specialty departments functioning in the institution. Our services are reflected in our motto “Skills that heal hearts that care”. The major step taken up here is to change the year old system of casualty to an Emergency Medicine Department.
