Emergency Medicine (EM) is a newly developed medical specialty that spreads at a phenomenal pace throughout the globe.  EM plays an essential role in healthcare and in many countries, serves as a safety net providing the necessary healthcare to patients who require immediate medical attention.  Recent worldwide urbanization, economic changes, disasters, aging populations and worsening health care systems have led to an increased awareness of the need for organized, well trained emergency care throughout the world.

MIMS is the first NABH accredited multi-specialty hospital established in 2001 and our motto is “A Caring mission, A Global vision”. The casualty service was upgraded to "Emergency Medicine" department with international standards in 2006. The department is renovated both structurally and functionally and is now outstanding with adequate equipments and qualified staff support. Our concept has been accepted by the medical world. The department has become popular among public within a short span of time. The top management of MIMS extended their whole hearted support to develop this new specialty in Kerala.
