In 1982 a new two storeyed hospital building was opened in the college campus at Puthiyakavu by the then Health Minister Sri.K.G.R.Kartha. It accommodated Prasootitantra, Koumarabritya, Salyatantra and Salakyatantra wards. There was also an anorectal clinic with Ksharasootra facilities. Kayachikitsa, Rogavijnana and Agadatantra wards remained at the Old Hospital building at Tripunitura. 13 departments came into existence in 1998.
