About Caritas Hospital Kottayam

Caritas Hospital, run by the Catholic diocese of Kottayam, operates under a registered charitable trust with the registration number 510/IV/95. Caritas Hospital, Kottayam, the towering lighthouse of good health and healing in Central Kerala. As modern medical science has turned the dread associated with illnesses a thing of past, Caritas stays committed to leading undreds of our patients to the light of good health and happiness. ‘Kenotic love saves life’ is our motto and we are guided by the spirit of Lord Jesus Christ, who wanted every human being to enjoy the fullness of joy and abundance of life.

The erstwhile Bishop of Kottayam laid the foundation of the Caritas Hospital & Institute of Health Sciences in 1962. The motive behind establishing this healthcare institution was to serve the local community by providing high-quality but affordable medical treatment for maternity needs and snakebites. Our mission was to provide affordable healthcare services to people across Central Kerala. The zeal to take this mission forward saw our 50-bed hospital branch itself into a multispecialty hospital with 600+ beds and 134 ICU beds.

About Kottayam

Kottayam is located 155 km north of Trivandrum and 85 km south of Kochi airports. Kotayam is unexplored for MVT and a pass by location for MVT. The challenge is to hold the potential patients who are passers through or visit nearby Kumarakom and alleppy who are post medical tourist. Tie up with resorts and promoting Ayurveda would be the ideal solution. Kottayam is a city in the Indian state of Kerala. It is located in central Kerala and is also the administrative capital of Kottayam district. Bordered by the lofty and mighty Western Ghats on the east and the Vembanad Lake and paddy fields of Kuttanad on the west, Kottayam is a land of unique characteristics. Panoramic backwater stretches, lush paddy fields, highlands, hills and hillocks, extensive rubber plantations, places associated with many legends and a totally literate people have given Kottayam District the enviable title: The land of letters, legends, latex and lakes.

The city is an important trading center of spices and commercial crops, especially rubber. Most of India’s natural rubber originates from the acres of well-kept plantations of Kottayam, also home to the Rubber Board. Kottayam is also called as “Akshara Nagari” which means the “city of letters” considering its contribution to print media and literature.Kottayam Town is the first town in India to have achieved 100% literacy (a remarkable feat achieved as early as in 1989). English education in South India did actually start at the Old Seminary here at Kottayam in 1813. The first printing press in Kerala was established (CMS Press) here in 1821 by Rev.Benjamin Baily. The first college in the State (CMS College) was also started here at Kottayam in 1840. Maiden printed Malayalam-English and English-Malayalam Dictionaries were published from Kottayam in 1846 and 1847 respectively. The first and only Cooperative Society of writers, authors and publishers (SPCS), for publishing books and periodicals was set up here in 1945.

Kottayam is the hometown of a vast number of books and periodicals and is the center of publishing business in the State. Kottayam is the first town in India selected by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India to be transformed as an Eco City. Sri K R Narayanan, the former President of India hails from Kottayam District. Kottayam is the ideal take off point for visits to Peermade, Munnar, Thekkady, Ernakulam and the temple city, Madurai. It is also a gateway to the pilgrim centers of Sabarimala, Mannanam, Vaikom, Ettumanoor, Bharananganam, Erumeli etc.
