Ours is the first specialty co-operative hospital in Southern Kerala. NSMIMS is one of the first ventures of Kollam District Co-operative Hospital Society.
Our hospital is a tribute to Co-operative movements and the late leader, N Sreedharan. The hospital started functioning since February 2006, built in memory of the renowned politician and humanitarian, Com. N. Sreedharan- popularly known as N.S, the hospital tries to live up to his values. N.S was a great propagator of the Communist Movement in Kerala, an idol in the socio-political field and a favourite leader among the masses. He died in an accident while serving as the State Secretariat Member of the party on February 17th 1985 at Kottarakkara.

The past two decades have seen a rapid expansion of the corporate agenda in the field of health and health care. Rather than moving toward a system of universal access to medical care the government sector is slowly moving away from health sector. Patients are now “clients” and clinical services are “product lines”. More clinical research is now funded by the pharmaceutical industry than the National Health & FW Institutes.
