Christian Fellowship Hospital

Serving the Community Since 1955..

GNM Admissions 2018

         Oddanchatram is a taluk in Dindigul district, Tamil Nadu, located on the main road between Dindigul and Palani, accessible by both train and road.

         The Christian Fellowship Hospital is run by the Christian Fellowship, a charitable society which was established by a small group in 1955. It began as a small one room clinic in response to certain perceived needs in a backward area. It was started with the charitable and benevolent purpose of promoting spiritual, moral, mental and social advancement of the community, in and around Oddanchatram. It aims to serve as a Christ- Centred witness through the ministry of healing the whole person and being involved in other, developmental programmes of the community.

       At present the hospital has 298 beds with major speciality departments. The outpatient department has an average attendance of over 1000 patients daily. Over 1000 deliveries are conducted and over 3500 operations are done annually. The busy Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is equipped for emergency care including coronary care. There is also a Pediatric ICU (PICU) and Nursery (NICU). Great emphasis is placed on community health programmes by organized village clinics, home visits, school health education programme and other projects for development and education.

     The hospital and all its programmes are self supporting and the educational training programmes are heavily subsidized. This had been possible because of the Grace of God and the sacrificial service of committed staff who make a deliberate attempt to reduce cost of spending by adopting a simpler style of life and functioning.

     The motto of the The Fellowship is to “ Serve in Love” and its goal is to proclaim and participate in Christ’s mission of liberation from sin, ignorance, sickness and suffering.   

      In the light of the above, immense need for adequate staff and therefore training of nurses was felt. In 1978 the School of Nursing was started with A.N.M course. In 1980 it was upgraded to the General Nursing and Midwifery (GNM) course. Every year we have an intake of 35 candidates to GNM course by a rigorous entrance examination followed by 2 interviews, aptitude test and a physical check up in order to try and filter in suitable candidates. These students are able to fulfill all their requirements because of the variety of patients coming to the hospital and the number of programmes available in the institution. Subsequently Allied Health Services training courses are started.
