At Meitra, the founders believe that quality healthcare is the right of every human.
The vision for Meitra was to create an outstanding tertiary healthcare facility and provide unparalleled clinical care and patient experience in the beautiful city of Calicut. Right from its inception, Meitra was envisioned to be a healthcare centre of international standards. The infrastructure, medical facilities, and clinical services were benchmarked against the world’s best hospitals.
Meitra’s patient-centric hospital design has resulted in a new kind of hospital concept – ‘The Hospitel’– essentially merging the care of a hospital and the luxury of a hotel, to create a unique patient experience.
There are 220 individual rooms and suites including 52 individual intensive care units. The hospital also has 7 futuristic operation theatres and is supported by cutting edge medical diagnostic equipment.
Meitra delivers advanced patient-care through integrated practice units called Centres of Excellence (COE). Each centre combines medical and surgical departments associated with the management of one disease area or organ system under a single leadership team.
Meitra has five specialized COEs: Heart and Vascular Care, Bone, Joint and Spine Care, Neurosciences, Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases, and Renal Diseases and Urology. These centres are supported by renowned doctors, state-of-the-art medical facilities, and technology-integrated clinical practices. Meitra’s care-path model was developed under the advice of physicians from one of the world’s best hospitals. The COEs ensure that patients receive unparalleled clinical care that clearly sets the hospital apart in the industry.
Patient recovery in Meitra is accelerated not just because of the fantastic clinical care one receives but also because of the feel-good environment created through its unique infrastructure.
Create a healthcare delivery system which is globally recognized for an exceptional patient experience with the best possible clinical outcomes, integrated with transparent and ethical practices.

The way forward.
As we reflect on the year 2020, it is filled with the kind of uncertainty and struggle that mankind has never witnessed before. But if you take a moment and look deeper, it also showcased the resilience of the human spirit, and its ability to collaborate and evolve in adversity. We witnessed the fight for hope – for a better tomorrow, for a happier tomorrow. As we introspected, like the rest of the world did, we were determined to come out of it stronger. We were determined to create a health system that draws inspiration from the lessons that we learnt as we paused.
