Mr. Baker Fenn a local believer and philanthropist, with the intention of rendering medical services to the needy, built a small building in his plot of 2.30 acres. Impressed by the excellent service rendered by TMM Hospital Tiruvalla, his building and land was handed over to Dr. Churchward, Chief physician at T M M Hospital Tiruvalla. On September 14,1945 T M M Hospital Vazhoor came into existence.The work of spreading Gospel through medical service was also started along with.
Since then the hospital has been rendering valuable medical services to the catchment area of about 30 sq.miles east to Kottayam. This was made possible by
the consistent professional and material support from T M M Hospital, Tiruvalla.
