As there are several villages around Gingee, our founder dreamt of a hospital to cater to the medical needs of the people.The hospital at Gingee was blessed by then bishop Very. Rev. Ambrose and Superior General Rev. Mr. Deodatta Mary on 25.05.1960. The sisters visited the 27 villages to identify and to treat the sick. Dr. Ashcof of Germany who served at Chetpet Hospital guided and streamlined the sisters to run the hospital. The experience of St. Francis of Assisi with the lepers inspired and motivated the sisters to carry out their mission with efficiency.
- School Health Education.
- Home care
- While Dr. Ashcof took the responsibility of treating the lepers, the sisters engaged in General Medicine and Maternal care from the year 1972.
- 1986: Sr. Dr. Gentiana Mary was appointed a full time practitioner.
- 1993: An ambulance procured from foreign fund.
The hospital served the villagers in providing awareness programmes, immunization, and maternal care with the sisters serving round the clock. Special care and attention given to 25 differentially challenged children free of cost. Sr. Dr. Bridgit, the full time practitioner takes care of the medical of the villagers.
