It is in Samaritan Hospital  the Open Heart Surgery was started for the first time in Kerala in 1972. This department stopped functioning in 1983  due to economic  non viability in rural setting  like ours and also because new surgical facilities offering similar services came up in the Government setup

In 1975 the pioneers of the hospital thought of having a Nursing School , steps were taken by the authorities. Inspection was conducted by the Nursing Council in September and sanction was accorded on 12.12.1975.
