History

In 1962, MAR THOMAS THARAYIL, Bishop of Kottayam, in collaboration with the selected few of German benevolent people started the venture of health care naming it 'CARITAS'. The word itself adheres to the recommendations of the 1946 Bhore committee report 'to ensure medical care for every individual including those who cannot pay for it''. Inefficiency of the system, deficiency of proper planning, lack of true commitment and above all, wide spread corruption, have led to the deplorable situation that the health mission of 'CARITAS HOSPITAL' has to play a vital role in alleviating pain of the sick and the suffering, especially to those who cannot afford adequate treatment. Spread over 23 acres of scenic hinterlands, 4 kilometers from Government Medical College and just seven kilometers from Kottayam, CARITAS is the embodiment of modern medical care. The unconditional support and enlightened vision of Mar KURIAKOSE KUNNACHERY, the Bishop of Kottayam, the hospital has grown to a world-class manifold academic and community based hospital that is from a 50-bedded hospital to a 510-bed strength hospital. Footing on the strong guidance of Mar Mathew Moolakattu, the co-adjutor Bishop of Kottayam, the hospital will grow to its renowned heights. It now cares more than 2 lakhs OUT PATIENTS and almost 10,000 IN-PATIENTS each year. 35 reputed departments functions round the clock in the hospital. Authentic and well-versed senior doctors and energetic and aspiring junior doctors do work as a team to uphold the health care system the hospital has earned its cherishing and memorable years of service in the sphere of health care. Self-immolated and christianized charity motivated religious sister nurses and service- based staff nurses and student nurses, excels the nursing service department. Committed and skilled paramedical services and other hard working auxiliary services do make the hospital the best in central Kerala.
