The Catholic Church has been engaged in the ministry of healing all over the world for the past two thousand years. The Founders of Pushpagiri at Tiruvalla, Kerala were also driven by the same mission. On 15thAugust.’1959, His Excellency Zacharias Mar Athanasios, the third Bishop of Tiruvalla started a small clinic with 8 beds and named it Pushpagiri hospital.Across a span of half a century, Pushpagiri has travelled forward with an understanding and vision “We Care God Cures” which proclaims the faith of taking upon each other’s burdens and humility before the divine providence from where all cure and healing happens. The hospital which was started with meager facilities to cater to the needs of women and children gradually developed to a Medical College in 2002 to its present stature with1200 beds and is a hi-tech Super Specialty Hospital with all modern amenities.
