Caritas Heart Institute traces its origin to Caritas Hospital & Institute of Health Sciences, which has been providing exemplary cardiology care for over 37 years. We specialize in cardiac emergency care and non-invasive cardiac services - especially ECHO cardiography, research, and preventive cardiac education. Eventually, the treatments and technology evolved into highly advanced, targeted, evidence-based cardiology care. This led to the foundation of the Caritas heart institute in 2011 as a one-stop care centre for comprehensive heart care. Equipped with some of the best facilities and experts in the region, our expertise in interventional cardiology and cardiac surgery has made Caritas Heart Institute the best cardiology hospital in Kerala.
Caritas heart hospital can be broadly divided into the non-invasive, interventional division of cardiovascular and thoracic Surgery and the heart transplant program. All these cardiovascular units are fully equipped with the best cardiologists to conduct a wide range of cardiothoracic and vascular surgeries under one roof. Our cardiac surgeons have proven expertise in performing complex medical procedures such as heart failure surgery, heart transplantation, coronary artery bypass surgery, heart valve replacement surgery, pediatric cardiac surgeons to treat congenital heart defects in children and others.
The non-invasive cardiology department of Caritas Heart Institute comprises state-of-the-art facilities such as outpatient clinics, ECG, echocardiography, Holter monitors, treadmills and advanced medical equipment including heart rhythm clinic, heart failure clinic, lifestyle clinic, etc.
The ECHO team has crossed the milestone of performing over three lakh cardiac procedures successfully over the years. The team is backed by the most high-end medical equipment that empowers the team to make critical medical decisions right off the bat and provide the highest diagnostic quality treatment.
Our hybrid cath lab is the first of its kind in Kerala and among the few extremely advanced cath labs in the entire country.

This number includes 25,000 coronary angiograms and 13,000 coronary angioplasty. The department has conducted multiple successful surgeries that include the following:
Our CVTS division had set a quality and process benchmark by being the first in Kerala to improvise the process and conduct keyhole heart bypass surgery. To date, this division has an unbroken record of performing over 500 keyhole bypass surgeries and 200 keyhole valve repair/replacement surgeries.
We also provide regular academic programs on the keyhole heart surgery procedure that attract multiple academics and cardiac surgeons across the country every year.
