Medical Trust Hospital has been selected as the medical partner for Kochi Metro Rail project for a period of three years. Kochi Metro Rail Limited had floated an Expression of Interest for selecting a medical partner and Medical Trust Hospital has been selected based on the EOI.
According to the agreement, KMRL will provide space for setting up the medical desk and the hospital will provide emergency medical care in all the stations. The hospital has to bring in all infrastructure and staff required for operating the facility. Medical Trust would be deploying ICU ambulance facility at every 5km distance to cover any emergencies along the Metro alignment. The Kochi-1 cardholders will also get discounts for their treatment. Based on the agreement, the hospital would also provide medical assistance to KMRL initiatives like marathon, walkathon, cyclathon etc.
“Kochi Metro is the future of Kerala and we are happy and proud to be associated with KMRL as their medical partners for next 3 years”, said Antony Pulickan, Managing Director, Medical Trust Hospital.
