While we are credited as the first mission hospital in Kerala to get the NABH Accreditation for Quality of Services, our real strength and incentive remains our strong sense of social commitment in providing an affordable, service oriented and patient-entered care to all, focussed on a holistic healing in all dimensions - mind, body, and spirit. Over half a century we have been committing ourselves in serving the less fortunate sections of the society irrespective of cast or creed with the help of various charitable initiatives, free out reach clinics, funding programs designed for the financially backward sections of our society etc. And we look forward with hope that our mission in providing excellent and affordable healthcare to all may continue unabated in the future too.
