HISTORY OF OUR PARENT HOSPITAL


THE CHRISTIAN MISSION HOSPITAL


The history of the Christian Mission Hospital at Madurai and the history of the C.S.I Jeyaraj Annapackiam College of Nursing and Allied Sciences,  are inseparably Intertwined.  The Christian Mission Hospital is one of the earliest health agencies of Missionary Medical work in Southern India.  The Hospital evolved from a small dispensary established by the American Missionary Doctor C.S. Shelton in 1849, which in the next two years became a hospital. In 1937,
This hospital functioned as two separate units namely the hospital for women and children and the Albert victor hospital for men, later, as the Willis F. Pierce memorial hospital for men. These two hospitals were amalgamated in 1953 with a new name of Christian Mission Hospital. Many doctors of Western and Indian Origin contributed untiringly to the steady growth of this hospital in the last one and a half century.  Memorable among them are doctors Paulin Root, Harriet, E. Parker, E.W.Wilder, Chellappa, J.J.Bornes, Betty Chinniah, Indra Raja and Rajeev Chelladurai, A.K. Fenn.             The Christian Mission Hospital is 170 years old, 350 bedded hospital with  outpatient departments, inpatient services, 24 hrs emergency and critical care services. Also available with services like 24 hrs Clinical laboratory, Blood bank, X ray, Ultrascan and Community medicine.It is, indeed a privilege that the Nursing students learn and practice nursing care in this hospital.
