Our Lady of Health Hospital

Introduction:
Our Lady of health Hospital was the out come of the ardent desire of His Excellency Rt. Rev. Dr. R. Arockiasamy Sundaram D.D., L.C.L.M.A, the first Bishop of Tanjore Diocese to render Medical help to the sick and the needy people of Thanjavur. The Bishop expressed his wish to Msgr. Mothavas to put up a hospital. He gladly complied with the wish of the Bishop and cooperated with him to fulfill his plan.

Accordingly the foundation stone for Our Lady of Health Maternity Clinic was blessed by our Bishop Sundaram and laid by the Honorable Mrs. Lourdammal, Minister for Local Administrative government of Madras on 20/3/1960.

With in a few months a small building to accomodate 16 beds was built for maternity and medical cases. A new building was constructed to accommodate 3 sisters to work in the Hospital.

On 05/04/1961 the hospital was blessed by Rt. Rev. Dr. Arockiasamy Sundaram and opened by Mrs. Lourdammal Simon Minister of for Local administrative, Tamilnadu.

As years went by there was not enough space for the patients. In 1964 a general ward with 20 beds was built and on 10/2/1964 it was blessed by Rt. Rev. Dr. Arockiasamy Sundaram. A staff quarters was built with 5 rooms in 1963 and also  a canteen in 1967.

In 1971 an outpatient department and on its first floor a living quarters for Resident doctors were constructed and blessed on 23/10/1971 by Bishop Sundaram.

As years passed one part time doctor and some more sister were posted. In 1976 an operation theatre was built in the main block itself, and some additional rooms were added. Some more rooms for patients were built.

The hospital also sent the sisters and its staff to the nearby villages to take care of their health needs. We also adopted villages and regularly our staff distributed medicines.
