Father Muller Medical College Hospital under the aegis of the Diocese of Mangalore has been catering to the health care needs of people of Mangalore and its neighbouring Districts & States for the past 138 years. To enumerate, 14 decades since inception- this Hospital has grown from a small seed planted by the founder Rev. Fr August Muller, into a mighty tree, offering its seasoned services to patients from neonatal care to Geriatric care in accord with its motto ‘heal and comfort’ and is aptly acknowledged as a Multi-speciality tertiary care hospital.
The hospital is well equipped with all modern diagnostic and therapeutic amenities for patient care with 1250 beds. It has state-of-the-art Operation theatres, round the clock NABL Accredited Laboratory, Radio-Diagnostic Centre with 1.5 Tesla MRI, CT Scan, digital X-rays, and ultrasonography, 24x7 Blood Bank & Pharmacy and handles not only general & routine cases of healthcare concern but also trauma, medico-legal and road traffic accidents cases. Apart from the specialty & super specialty related wards, the hospital has ultra-modern intensive care units, which include an ICU, ICCU, BICU, PICU, SICU & a NICU to care for the critically ill. A Burns ward and Dialysis unit provide additional health-care facilities for those patients who require attention in this special field. Apart from the general specialties such as Medicine, Surgery, OBG, Paediatrics, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, ENT, Psychiatry, Dermatology & Dentistry, the Hospital has added on super-specialized services for patients requiring Open-heart Surgery, Neurosurgery, Spinal surgery, Hand & Micro Surgery, Onco-Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Surgical Gastroenterology and Transplant Services within its ambit and has the best Doctors in our healthcare team. Many patients have been approaching our able Super-specialists for their Cardiology, Neurology, Nephrology, Respiratory, Rheumatology, Urology problems and the Hospital has now an Interventional Radiologist who can help patients without Surgery by Pin Hole treatment in grave health issues such as Stroke, Brain Aneurysm Coiling, Varicose Veins, Carotid Artery Stenting, Aortic Interventions, Liver Cancer treatment and much more. We have various health check-up schemes at subsidized rates, schemes for Women whereby fitness and health can be assessed in advance as a precautionary health measure.
I am extremely pleased to state that the Hospital is not only one of the largest Health care Service provider in Mangalore but also the largest to provide quality health care services at affordable and subsidized rates and 840 beds are reserved free of cost for the poor and marginalized members of the society.
Its recognition for quality care in spite of its charitable nature has been acknowledged through NABH & NABL Accreditation Boards certifying that the highest quality standards are followed and prompt care is given to every patient who enters the portals of the Hospital.
Even though the Hospital is philanthropic in nature, no compromise is made in the protocols or standards followed by the Doctors & Staff. The Management prides itself on having a good team, satisfied & happy patients, latest automation, and the finest Doctors, Nurses, Technical & Administrative Staff who observe the best practices, update themselves from time to time in the latest technology and medical know-how. The fact that the Hospital conducts training sessions every month at our highly sophisticated Simulation Centre is also a testimony to the fact that the Management stresses on following the evidence-based interdisciplinary approach in the medical field and in keeping in line with its goal “better patient satisfaction and maximum patient safety at every level”.
