KOCHI: With Kochi set to witness a boom in the hospitality sector in the next couple of years, five-star hospitals seem to be getting one-up on five-star hotels.There are already over five multi-specialty hospitals in and around the city. Besides this, two more are coming up. Fortis Healthcare (India) Ltd has announced the launch of four hospitals, including one in Kochi, and the DM Medcity@Cochin is coming up at Cheranelloor.The Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) opened its multi-speciality hospital at Kalamassery here in June with the latest facilities to exploit the  potential for medical tourism.Kochi has already become a centre for medical tourism with several hospitals springing up in the last few years to meet the demand. Fortis marks its entry into Kerala with a 45-bed boutique hospital in Kochi, which will offer quality healthcare for women under ‘Fortis La Femme’ brand.DM Healthcare’s medcity@kochi, claimed to be the first medi-city in Kerala, is coming up at Cheranelloor. “The work on the project is expected to be completed and the hospital opened by the end of 2013,” said DM Healthcare authorities.The project Medcity would be set up on an area of one million square feet with a built-up area of about 2.5 million square feet. “It will have a large 500-bed anchor hospital as the fulcrum with about 10 smaller hospitals of 100 to 200 beds for individual specialties. MedCity@Kochi will be a conglomeration of multi-super specialties led by renowned  medical practitioners from across the globe.Patients from the West Asia, Europe and USA are expected to make use of this facility due to major cost advantages,” they said.
