SAN JOE HOSPITAL PERUMBAVOOR
SANJOE HOSPITAL is a charitable institution managed by Franciscan Clarist Congregation of Sacred Heart Province, Alwaye. It is founded upon the Charism of St. Francis Assisi & St. Clare.
Socio – Economic Background
Perumbavoor Municipality is a small, but thickly populated area. The villegers were financially backward. The health conditions of the rural poor were pathetic and most of them were affected by diseases. The location was an accident-prone area, where there were more than 200 saw mills/modern rice mills/plywood industries, in which frequent employment injuries are being occurred. As per the invitation of the local people a convent of the sisters of Franciscan Clarist Congregation was started at Pulluvazhy, Perumbavoor in 1978. The sisters recognized the need for a clinic and started health care service by establishing a health care centre in 1978 at Pulluvazhy. The health care clinic was slowly developed by the support of local people and well-wishers, and established as a hospital in 1981 at Perumbavoor. Since then, the hospital has grown to a 350bedded hospital having an average out patient attendance of 550 daily. The legal ownership of the hospital rests with the Rev. Mother Provincial, Sacred Heart Province, Alwaye. The hospital is registered under the Indian Trust Act.
