Breathing Life into Health: Your Lungs, Our Expertise.


Findings of the Seasonal Waves Of Respiratory Disorders (SWORD) study stated that chronic and acute respiratory problems are the most significant contributors to India’s growing mortality rate after heart diseases.

The lack of awareness about such morbid conditions has resulted in demography leading to reckless lifestyles and food habits. Such a lifestyle eventually leads to symptoms like chest tightness, sleep apnea, and wheezing that ultimately manifests into severe ailments like lung cancer.

At Caritas, our motto is to relieve a patient from their respiratory problems and educate the masses about the gravity of COPD illnesses and the necessity to lead a healthy lifestyle to remove this disease from its roots.

Over the years, we have successfully achieved the objective that helped us to be identified as the best pulmonology hospital in Kerala.

The pulmonology department in Caritas Hospital is a specialized unit that completely treats respiratory diseases. The experienced doctors and nurses provide all diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitation services. We provide specialized care for children with respiratory conditions, adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma and other respiratory diseases.

The primary purpose of the pulmonology department is to diagnose the patients and provide appropriate treatment to improve their quality of life. The aim is to prevent further complications, reduce hospitalization, improve physical activity and provide long-term control of symptoms.
