ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF COMTRUST EYE HOSPITAL – AN OVERVIEW

Comtrust Eye Hospital was established in 1999 by the highly respected Comtrust Charitable Trust founded by German Missionaries (Basel Mission), which has an unblemished and uninterrupted history of selfless community service in this part of India for well over 150 years. The Hospital has since been providing top quality Eye Care facilities in the region of North Kerala with Hospitals and vision centres in Calicut, Thallasery, Kodiathur and Wayanad. The charitable activities of the Hospital and its community outreach programs are coordinated by the Comtrust Eye Care Society.

Comtrust Charitable Trust has been totally immersed in charitable activities in the field of Education and Medical aid right from its inception. The birth of the Hospital is an offshoot of a long felt need for a well-equipped Eye hospital in the Malabar region which resulted in the Board of Trustees deciding to set up an exclusive Eye Hospital and Research Centre in the city of Calicut. The impetus for its beginning was the discovery of the acute lack of accessible Eye Care in this region and the appalling and sad state of available eye care facilities, especially for the poor. Keeping these two critical requirements in mind, the Comtrust Charitable Trust went about creating this hospital in a very humble way.

The Hospital was inaugurated in February 1999 and the foundation stone was laid by Shri. R. Venkitaraman, former President of India and the formal inauguration was done by Dr. Namperumal Samy of Aravind Eye Hospital, Madurai, who also gratefully extended all the necessary technical support and guidance during the nascent stages. The Hospital opened its doors with an initial strength of 2 doctors and 15 other staff. Regular camps into rural, areas were organized in order to reach out to the patients who were unable to have any access to high quality eye care facilities.

In a very exciting and eventful span, Comtrust Eye Hospital has grown massively to its present exalted status of over 25 eminent multidisciplinary pool of renowned Doctors and other professional HR assets. Our highly skilled and motivated team of Ophthalmologists and surgeons ably assisted by a highly dedicated staff work tirelessly to achieve our goals of providing superior Eye Care Facilities to all. The hospital works on a not for profit motive and provides the best in quality eye care in a highly professional and technology led environment. The management and administration strives relentlessly to ensure that the most technologically advanced equipment and procedures are made available to all, irrespective of the category of the patients. Almost 60% of the turnover is directed towards providing quality eye care for the poor through the Free Section department.
