It is indeed very good and satisfying to see Father Muller's Institutions forging ahead into rural areas with SATE OF THE ART innovations. To go to a small place not too far away from Mangalore to serve the suffering and needy patients is a step in the right direction.

Father Muller commenced his work over 130 years ago focusing on the poor who needed medical attention. The seed that he planted has now grown into a mighty tree. It is good to see the Institution growing further under the patronage of Bishop A.P. D'Souza with Father Patrick as the director of all operations ably assisted by Father Richard, Father Ravi and the recent addition Father Roshan. On the homeopathy side of course there is a good and efficient team headed by by Father Prakash D'Souza supported by Father Vincent Salsanha.

May the new venture in Thumbe grow. I would join several other in saying kudos to the management on this outreach program which will also be a good option for the qualifying medicos.

Fr Mullers knows health care from the health and care stand point, they should have expanded decades back, but they did not and it was a mistake.

It is good to see them expand in a bid to provide health care to people living outside Mangalore.

I sincerely hope further expansion of Catholic educational institutions happens in rural areas where such opportunities are missing.

Very good. People surrounding the place would get some benefits. Will it be a charitable institution or pure business type?

It was a surprising news to us all. Fr.Mullers Charitable Hospital at last made up its mind to spread its Wing. Hope soon all Talukas in our Twin District shall have one Fr. Mullers Hospital. God Bless us all.
