Govt.Medical College, Kozhikode, Kerala

Govt.Medical College, Kozhikode is a premier medical college located in the city of Kozhikode in Kerala,. It was established in 1957 as the second medical college in Kerala.

The main hospital was commissioned in 1966 with 1183 beds. It was later supplemented by the Institute of Maternal and Child Health in 1975 (610 beds), the Savithri Devi Saboo Memorial Cancer Institute (101 beds) and the Chest Hospital (100 beds). A super specialty complex, a new Block for the Institute of Maternal and Child Health,  an artificial limb centre, the College of Nursing , the College of Pharmacy, Casualty (Emergency Services) complex, Samrakshana Kendram, and Vishrama Kendram were later added to the main institution. The patient load is beyond the commissioned number of total beds. Because of the patient overload, the floors and corridors are usually occupied. The Dental College was inaugurated on 16 April1984 and is at present functioning as an independent college.

During the last decade almost all modern specialty services in medical care have been developed in the institution including kidney transplantation. A well equipped Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Tele Cobalt Therapy are already there in the hospital.
