Our History

St. Philomena’s Hospital was started in 1937 by Dr. Sr. Veronica Pitt (a qualified gynaecologist) and a small team of religious sisters of the Society of Jesus Mary Joseph. Dr. Sr. Pitt passed away in 1975, but not before accomplishing her mission as a medical missionary in India.

Over the years, the hospital has been expanding and updating all the departments with modern technology and trained manpower. Today the hospital treats over 20,000 in-patients and 1,60,,000 out-patients and offers free and subsidised services to the weaker sections of society.

In 2012, the JMJ Sisters in Bangalore celebrated 75 years of selfless service.
