About The Hospiptal

Nestled within the picturesque heart of Thiruvalla, an idyllic town in central Travancore, Kerala, lies the Pushpagiri group of institutions. This sacred land once welcomed the esteemed Saint Thomas, a devoted disciple of Jesus, and it now boasts spiritual sanctuaries like Sri Vallabha Temple, Saint John’s Cathedral, and the Parumala Church, all contributing to the town’s profound spiritual heritage. Thiruvalla’s verdant landscape is adorned with lush paddy fields and flourishing coconut groves, further enhancing its natural beauty.

The multifaceted Pushpagiri Medical College encompasses the Institute of Medical Sciences, College of Dental Sciences, College of Pharmacy, College of Nursing, and the College of Allied Health Sciences.

At the helm of innovation, the Pushpagiri Research Centre, affectionately known as PRC, stands as the brainchild and bold venture of Reverend Dr. Mathew Mazhavancheril. Recognized as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (SIRO) by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India, PRC was inaugurated in 2009.
