The Madras Medical Mission
The Madras Medical Mission is an organization inspired by the missionary zeal of Bishop Zachariah Mar Dionysius, Metropolitan of the Madras Diocese of the Orthodox Church of India. Strengthened by the devotion and commitment of the members of this Community at Chennai (erstwhile Madras city of Tamil Nadu) who promoted the registered charitable society in 1982
From modest beginnings two decades ago, the synergy of proficient practitioners, prudential management and providential guidance has metamorphosed this ISO 9001:2000 certified Madras Medical Mission into an organization of excellence that promotes some of the finest super-speciality tertiary care medical institutions in India , with superlative infrastructure, leading edge technology and accomplished professionals.
The mission’s effort to establish an institution to engage in the Ministry of Healing resulted in setting up its first unit relating to cardiac care in June 1987 in the hired premises of another hospital in the Mecca of Health Care in India–Chennai. Within a short period, from this humble abode, the Madras Medical Mission moved in 1995 to its own premises at Mogappair, a residential suburb of Chennai city, an aesthetically designed eight storeyed building around lush green surroundings. Under the patronage of Mother Theresa, this monumental edifice was inaugurated in the presence of luminaries such as Dr.Christiaan, Barnard, pioneer of the Heart Transplant from Africa, Dr.PantpisSakornpant, who has done the largest number of heart and lung transplants in Asia and doyens of the cardiac world, Dr.Dominique Metras (France), Sir Terrence English (U.K), Dr.Richard Engelmen (U.S.A), Sir Donald Ross (U.K.) and many more.
