Pushapagiri, formerly known as Cherupushpagiri was the first official residence or Aramana of His Lordship Late Jacob Mar Theophilos of happy memory, the chief collaborator with the Servant of God, Geevarghese Mar Ivanios for the cause of Reunion and Catholic Communion in Malankara. Moved by the health situation of women in pregnancy and newborn children in Travancore, His Excellency Zacharias Mar Athanasios, the third Bishop of the Archdiocese of Tiruvalla started a clinic which later turned to be a centre for training girls, especially nurses. The strength and vitality of this institution is nothing but the spiritual foundation laid by this great prelate Mar Theophilos . This was a historic moment in the history of Travancore that made manifold changes in the lives of families and in health care system. Due to the blessings of the Lord and especially through the intercession of the Blessed Mother and St. Therese of Lisieux and through the hard work of the priests and doctors and nurses and other staff, Pushpagiri has grown to be one of the best Medical Institutes in Kerala. Recently it has bagged the 10th position in health research in the world, especially in the field of Endocrinology. It is one of the premier institutions of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church and is committed to health care with uncompromising services and medical education and training of health personnel with quality and commitment, who are ethically upright and scientifically motivated.
Pushpagiri Medical Society
The Pushpagiri Medical Society was established for spurring the growth of the institution and for entering into the education field. It was registered as a Charitable Society in the year 1992 (Reg. No. P. 73/92), under the Travancore Cochin Literary Scientific & Charitable Societies Registration Act of 1955. It has permission of a charitable society (12AA) and permission to receive Foreign Contributions and permission of 80G (tax benefit for donors). In 2002 Pushpagiri Medical Society entered into the arena of higher education in the medical and allied fields by starting as the first private medical college in Kerala with the name Pushpagiri Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Centre. Subsequently, Pushpagiri went further along to establish premier institutions in the field of health care for higher education for Nursing (2002), Pharmacy (2004), Dental Science (2006) and Allied Health Science (2008). The orbit of its activities was more widened by the establishment of Pushpagiri Research Centre and Pushpagiri Centre for Virology and the centre is recognized as the only Research Centre under the Kerala University for Health and Allied Sciences. (Today, all the institutions under Pushpagiri Medical Society are scaling upwards by beginning Postgraduate and Super specialty programs and the hospital now has a strength of 1200beds.)
