The order of Assisi Sisters of Mary Immaculate was founded by the Msgr. Joseph Kandathil to support his mission of caring for the unwanted and socially discarded lepers.Msgr. Joseph who devoted his entire life as a priest for mitigating the suffering of the lepers founded a Hospital in 1942.The hospital was constructed braving widespread protests against the setting up of an asylum for the leprosy patients at Cherthala. The 50 bed hospital came up on a plot gifted by one of the parishioners of the Muttom Forane Church where Fr. Joseph was then serving as Assistant Vicar. As Fr.

We recognize that the nature of nursing is such that a substantial portion of the student learning occurs in the clinical area and also influenced by advances in science and technology. The faculty of nursing assumes the responsibility for developing a curriculum that guides, encourages, stimulates and challenges the learner. Careful planning of learning experience is based on consideration of student’s goals and needs. In fulfilling these responsibilities the faculty works with designated member of the health team and allied services within the hospital and the community to use the available resources most effectively. We initiate motivating, enthusiastic and talented students for their ongoing development extent nursing competence and to set higher goals in nursing, implement and evaluate care which ultimately reflects the consistently improving levels of health of the Society and the Nation.
