“Passion to heal has driven us for 20 years”
– Dr. Prithvi Mohandas, Managing Director, MIOT International
Dr. Prithvi Mohandas reiterated the hospital’s commitment to never rest on its laurels, but rather use them as an inspiration to reach new horizons. His special emphasis, though, was on what makes MIOT International stand out in an era where any hospital can easily acquire modern technology and a large body of staff.
“Despite being a private corporate hospital, what makes MIOT truly unique is that it actually cares for every single person who walks into the hospital, be it the patient or the loved one visiting the patient.”, Dr. Prithvi added.

The Journey of MIOT International
February 12, 1999
When MIOT International (Chennai, India) first opened doors to its patients, it offered 50 beds and a single speciality- Orthopaedics & Trauma. Backed by a firm commitment to offer excellence in every area of patient care, with compassion.
MIOT’s patients soon came from all over the world to be healed of their physical illness and to leave behind their weariness that comes with disease. They were met by experienced and skilled medical teams who offered advanced treatments in world class environments. They were supported from the moment they entered MIOT International, by empathetic care teams who took care of their every need. Together, they ensured that MIOT’s patients returned home with happy memories of the care they received here.

Today, 20 eventful years later, MIOT is a 1000-bedded hospital, offering cutting-edge care in 63 specialities. MIOT offers care on the other side of the globe through MIOT Pacific Hospitals; backed by the same commitment that the hospital started out with – to offer excellence in every area of patient care, with compassion.
What has inspired MIOT to stay committed to the high standards set by its founders? What has kept MIOT on track without making compromises in a fiercely competitive world? The answer is simple. MIOT’s patients, wherever they may come from. MIOT’s single-minded goal to give them the best possible outcomes in their treatments has kept the hospital on track.
These 20 years have seen MIOT make considerable investments in the best of resources and people. The hospital’s care systems have been re-designed to meet the fast-changing requirement of patients. But none of this has shifted MIOT’s primary focus: Medical Outcomes. The joy that comes from healing and watching patients get back to normal lives, confident and well again, has been MIOT’s reward.
On its 20th Anniversary, the MIOT Team re-dedicates itself to being torchbearers of an institution that is today a beacon of hope to patients from across the world. MIOT stands committed to offering them the highest standards of excellence in medical care, with compassion.
