70 Years of Excellence in Healing : Together,we embark on a new era of compassionate healthcare

Certain memories of an age-old legacy would exude a sacred scent in the minds of a generation who have ever had a chance to be associated with it.

St. Thomas Hospital, Chethipuzha is such a legacy – a rich legacy with its fragrance lingering through generations. Generations beginning from 1953 cherish the unique medical care flavoured with humanitarian services rendered by this magnificent medical institution. The Sacred Scent would tell numerous tales of how this glorious hospital, the pivotal medical care in Central Kerala, has touched millions of lives with dedicated care and excellent quality. The story is a blend of excellence and solace, quality and care, perfection and love.

The year 1953 witnessed the humble beginnings of St. Thomas Hospital in the form of a 20-bedded clinic with one doctor, founded by the first Archbishop of Changanassery Archdiocese Mar Mathew Kavukattu, the holy visionary, of the Archdiocese of Changanacherry.

The emergence of St. Thomas Hospital into a one-of-a-kind, full-fledged, multi-super specialty hospital has been nothing short of phenomenal.

With a staggering bed strength of 460, the hospital boasts 34+ specialized departments staffed by a team of 125+ highly skilled doctors and over 1000 supporting staffs. The hospital is equipped with cutting-edge medical technology, including the, GE 1.5 Tesla MRI Scan, GE 128 Slice CT Scanner, Siemens Artis Pure Cath Lab, Echo Cardiograph & Colour Doppler Scan, X-RAY, ECG, Ultrasound, Endoscopy facilities, etc. Additionally, it offers 24-hour pharmacy, laboratory, radiology, and emergency services, ensuring that patients receive prompt and efficient care.

Over the past 70 years, with our Motto ‘Blessed for Healing’ and enhanced vision of 'Dedicated Care-For You-Near You’ it's something we have been both exercising and experiencing. We have been doing so by bringing affordable healthcare within the reach of those who need it the most.

St. Thomas Hospital Chethipuzha, distinguishes itself in not one, but many ways: Be it the capability of our distinguished doctors and dedicated staff who represent the finest professionals across a set of 30 plus disciplines, our cutting-edge technologies, our ability to deliver a comprehensive medical care under a single roof, or through our commitment of getting you back on your bases faster, by not just curing, but compassionate caring.

We are today one amongst the finest medical destinations of Central Travancore. None of this would have been possible without our amazing medical and administrative team, the support given by Metropolitan Archdiocese of Changanassery, who has fuelled our journey by always being ready to go the extra mile upholding the motto. It is because of them that St. Thomas hospital retains its strong bonds of relationship with our patients, long after they've left our premises hale and happy pressuring our dedicated care. I acknowledge our 'Miracle Workers' of St. Thomas hospital, and I know that they will keep up the good work. Our dream is to see our community as a healthy and happy one.

“My experience with St.Thomas hospital has been exceptionally good in regard to the treatment facilities and hospitality. Its really fortunate to have such a superb multi speciality hospital in close vicinity. The speed and efficiency of hospital operations in terms of managing the patients is balanced and well managed. The canteen facilities are also very hygenic and quality centric no complaints whatsover considering the volume and scale of operations. In comparison to hospitals with very big names in big cities like bangalore, where hospital is absolute business, medical facilities in Kerala absolutely stand out for the cost effectiveness and quality of treatment.”
