It was CMI fathers of Kottackal Monastery took a voluntary step in starting a dispensary to reduce the difficulties faced by the people around.
The hospital had a humble beginning in a small room provided by St. Theresas Monastery Kottackal. At that time there was no doctor to check up the patients. Two or three bottles of quoin mixture were there and those who come with diseases were treated according to the symptoms. Later the so called dispensary were handed over to the Government and step by step the present day developments came.
