Credence Hospital, started as one of the biggest centers for Assisted Reproduction in South India in 2001, provided quality medical care and registered success rates at par with international standards, and evolved over the years into South India's first comprehensive multispecialty hospital for women. The high quality care provided by the hospital has attracted not only people from Kerala, but also patients from other states and nations to Credence over the years. In January 2006, Credence Hospital expanded and relaunched itself as a superspecialty Women's Health Institute and Research Center. Credence Hospital takes pride in being the first exclusive and comprehensive multispecialty Women's Health hospital in South India, offering an entire gamut of healthcare and allied services. The concept of a hospital dedicated to women, is by itself unique and a great step forward in healthcare delivery practice. Contrary to the popular perception that a women’s hospital can only provide maternity services, Credence Hospital provides the A to Z of healthcare to women. Right from basic specialties such as Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology and General Surgery, to specialties such as Plastic Surgery, Gastroenterology, Neurology, Orthopedics, ENT, Cardiology, Dermatology, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology, Physiotherapy, Pediatrics, Urology and Radiology, the hospital also has super-specialty departments like Neonatology, Genetics, Reproductive Medicine, Advanced Endoscopy and Fetal Medicine. The hospital, in addition, provides concepts such as Intra-uterine fetal therapy, cord-blood banking and advanced genetics, services which were hitherto unavailable in Trivandrum.
