The project intends to utilise the present NMIT campus with all its buildings and facilities. All utilities such as telephone, internet, power, water are available along with fully equipped office ready to function. This single factor will allow the project to be completed atleast 2 years earlier.
Apart from the government hospital at Kasaragod with 230 beds, the district has one hospital in Kanhangad, five Taluk hospitals and five community health centers that provide in-patient facilities.
The super-speciality services available in the district are sub-standard. Trauma care, oncology, neurology, cardiology and other super-specialities are just up-and-coming in the district.
Considering the district-wise distribution of the disease, breast and lung cancer are the leading cancer sites in Kannur and Kasaragod.
