Our History

Founder :
The Most Rev. Dr. Philipose Mar Chrysostom Mar Thoma Valiya Metropolitan

One evening, about thirty eight years ago the Most Rev. Dr. Philipose Mar Chrysostom Mar Thoma Valiya Metropolitan happened to visit the Medical College campus, Thiruvananthapuram while he was the Diocesan Bishop and saw the sad plight of the kith and kin of several patients admitted in different hospitals in the said campus, seeking shelter under the shades of trees and buildings. Compassion and deep concern for the poor and marginalised people germinated in his benevolent heart and a new project took shape in his mind. His dream was materialised in a humble manner and the Mar Thoma Hospital Guidance and Counselling Centre, Thiruvananthapuram was established in 1982, under the Kollam-Thiruvananthapuram Diocese of The Mar Thoma Syrian Church. The now prestigious institution started functioning in a small rented building on the side of Pazhaya Road near Medical College, Thiruvananthapuram, with just five boarders. Our loving God nourished the philanthropic project through the helpful hands of many well-wishers; and the novel scheme obtained remarkable appreciation among the public, and it progressed by leaps and bounds. Later it was shifted to a newly constructed building nearby.
