The Late Rev. Fr. James Pallivathukkal CMI bought a 13 bed Bosco hospital in Kalpetta in 1973 due to the lack of healthcare facilities in the region. And on March 01, 1973, under the supervision of Lakkidi Ashram, the hospital started functioning under the banner Fathima Mata Mission Hospital. They aim to provide qualitative treatment holistically and compassionately with their motto "Healing with Love." By taking care of the healthcare needs of people, the hospital strives to keep the promise of healthcare with the best medical professionals, improve the health of the community they serve, and be the destination of wellness for everyone. They are committed to serving without much burden for patients. And Fathima Mata School of Nursing, the first nursing school in Wayanad, was established in 1998.
