SUT Hospital Pattom has always been in the forefront and adopted newer medical technologies for achieving the best patient outcomes. We are closely looking at innovations in minimally invasive cardiac surgeries and valve replacements to reduce the length of patient stays and ensure a speedy recovery. SUT will witness several other path-breaking initiatives including the establishment of Renal Transplant Centre soon. The DNB program is also being pursued with renewed vigor. These contributions will raise the bar and reiterate our leadership position in the healthcare space as specialists in high-end tertiary and quaternary health care.
The hospital has been steadily working towards promoting a better quality of life by enhancing delivery of health care services in patient care. SUT has recently joined hands with Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence (KASE) to set up Centre of Excellence for Nursing called NICE- Nursing Institute for Career Enhancement.The Institute provides opportunities in nursing skill development by providing quality and relevant training programs that will enable nurses to enhance their leadership qualities, and improve their career and professional development opportunities globally.
