About us

To perpetuate the memory of his illustrious predecessor Bishop Aloysius Maria Benziger, Bishop Jerome Fernandez , the first Indian Bishop of the catholic diocese of Kollam, had the idea of erecting a befitting memorial. With the concurrence of the faithful of the diocese a decision was made to build a hospital.

Bishop Benziger Hospital was thus established in a four-acre plot situated in the heart of Kollam town. The hospital started functioning on 17th August 1948, the anniversary of the death of Bishop Benziger. It was the first ever private hospital in Kollam town. The formal inauguration took place on 8th December, 1948.The Hospital is owned and managed by the Latin Catholic Diocese Of Quilon. Being a charitable society, this is not a profit oriented institution. Whatever profit that is generated is always ploughed back into the institution for the benefit of the public. Hence the institution’s growth is to the benefit of the public which it aspires to serve and love with utmost sincerity. Bishop Benziger Hospital have a team of more than 500 employees including qualified medical professionals, paramedical staff and supporting staffs
