SUT, has been functioning in what was the old Pattom palace in the hospital city of Trivandrum. This hospital has many achievements to its credit. It has a group of dedicated personnel consisting of nurses, technicians, paramedical staff, and administrative staff, all working together as a family with the CEO Col Rajeev Mannali. I have myself been a patient at SUT two times, once for surgery and once due to fever. And my experience here has been very satisfactory. The feedback I have received from many people is that "It's not just the treatment but the personal touch of the non-treating staff which is also very very important, like the administrative staff, PROs, the nursing superintendent. For many people it has been a comfortable experience.As long the need for medical treatment exists, may this hospital serve the people with dedication, devotion and satisfaction to whatever extent possible.

Iam a Canadian who has been visiting India for the first time. When I was told that I had to go to the hospital in Trivandrum, I was anxious about going to an unfamiliar hospital in a country that is new to me.
I have now been to the hospital several times and each time I have been beautifully taken care of in every way.
Over the course of my time there I had the privilege of interacting with several physicians, technicians, and staff, especially in the Emergency, Gastroenterology, and CT Scan departments.
All of my concerns about being treated in an unfamiliar hospital within an unfamiliar system in an unfamiliar country using an unfamiliar language have evaporated. The hospital
Ambassador, Balachandran, has been extremely helpful and I am profoundly grateful for the remarkable care I have received at SUT hospital.
Due to a serious illness that I had in the past few years at home in Canada I have seen many physicians and had many hospital and staff experiences so I am aware of medical care standards. I'm positively impressed with the skill, knowledge and warm, caring manner of each of the physicians that treated me in the Emergency, as well as the gastroenterologist
Dr.Subhash, Dr. Janet, and staff at SUT.
If I had not had the privilege of being taken care of in such a prompt and thorough way my month's stay in India might have been ruined.
My heartfelt thank you to each person involved.
With gratitude,
Linda Nicholls

I just finished my telemedicine session for my mother and it was a great experience. This is and excellent facility for the old generation who can't travel to the hospital in person. The session was well coordinated and the platform was also very stable.

I am Dr N Sankaran MD(GEN MED )DTCD DNB (RESPIRATORY MEDICINE). Right now I am in TIRUNELVELI TAMIL NADU. Worked in TIRUNELVELI medical college as Professor of Thoracic medicine. I used to refer lot of cases needing Lung surgery to Sri Chithra Thirunal medical center. IN FACT I have a big file of patients referred and operated for lung surgery. I have presented lot of papers in conferences NAPCON IN participating. This l though I should feed before I talk about my experiences with SUT.

He had been subjected to surgery at RCC for osteosarcoma scapular regional had chest pain post surgery. He was referred to Trivandrum Medical college Stent was applied for CAD. He is a diabetic also well controlled. He was seen by lot of doctors locally and elsewhere he was seen by me about a month ago with history of hemoptysis could see a solitary nodule right base. HE said he was subjected to Bronchoscopy and FNAC elsewhere but results not contributory. I thought I should refer to SUT TRIVANDRUM to be meticulously handled under the care of my colleague Dr. UNNIKRISHNAN. He is a man of repute for the excellent attention bestowed upon this patient referred Dedicated personality indeed.

With cooperation of all other departments IN SUT like cardiology anesthesiology etc he was totally evaluated risk factors being involved and taken up for surgery lesion resected out completely.

I salute the Thoracic SUT unit and HOD DR. UNNIKRISHNAN for excellent performance really divine sent. To sum up if the patient is referred at right time to right institution like SUT complications could be averted and patients rejoice new lease of life. We will always remember the meritorious service being rendered by SUT.

I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to the gastro team at Sut Hospital, particularly Dr. Ranjith Hari and Dr. Lakshmi, for their outstanding care and support during my wife Sruthy's recent medical experience.
I would like to extend my special thanks to Physician Assistant Sheeba (associated with Dr. Lakshmi) and Physician Assistant Gopikrishna (associated with Dr. Ranjith Hari). Their exceptional care, support, and affectionate approach contributed significantly to my wife's quick recovery. Their dedication and professionalism reflect positively on the entire hospital.
I want to commend each member of your team for their hard work and commitment. The excellent service provided by departments such as OT surgical ICU and the 2nd floor staff has not gone unnoticed. The hospital, as a whole, has been a great source of relief during a challenging time.
I appreciate the efforts of the entire Sut management in maintaining such a high standard of care. Please convey my heartfelt regards to the gastro team, emphasizing that they are truly an asset to the hospital.
Thank you once again for the exceptional service.

Dear Col Sir,
On behalf of my family, I am writing this to express my sincere gratitude to the SUT family for the outstanding service provided to us during treatment of my mother. My mother was admitted to SUT, Pattom on 14th January 2024 and got discharged on 22 January 2024 (Room No. 505). She has been suffering from weakness in legs for many years but no one could identify the reason. About two weeks back, we consulted Dr. Ayyappan K, Neurologist in SUT. After a few radiological investigations, Dr. Suresh Kumar K.L, Neurosurgeon, Dr. Ayyapan K and Dr. A. Praveen, Interventional Radiologist have made a detailed analysis of the radiological investigations and identified the problem accurately.

Subsequently, Dr. Suresh Kumar K.L. and his team have done a highly successful spine surgery. His vast experiences for more than 30 years in Nuero Surgery really helped my mother .Consequently, in just three days after the surgery, she started walking as normal . We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Suresh Kumar and his team. The care given in the Neuro ICU was really outstanding. Ms. Magi mam, sister-in-charge of Neuro ICU and her team were excellent and really helpful.

We would like to thank Ms. Rachel Mam, Nursing Superintendent, Ms. Sheeba, Head Nurse in-charge of 5th floor and her excellent team, Mr. Jacob, Chief Security Officer and his excellent team for their continuous support provided throughout our stay.

Specifically, the constant support provided by the nursing team throughout our stay is highly appreciated.

Housekeeping staff played an important role in maintaining the hygiene environment. The canteen staff provided us with tasty food and we all, specifically our mother, really liked Canteeen food.

Finally, we would like to thank you for your outstanding leadership in operating such an important medical hospital in Thiruvananthapuram providing excellent service to thousands of patients across the country. We are sure that without your able leadership, it would have been impossible to maintain such a hospital and it’s high quality patient care.

In summary, the outstanding service provided by the entire SUT team made our stay for about 8 days really comfortable. We once again thank the entire SUT team.

With best regards,
Prof. S.K. Satheesh IISC Bangalore.
