The Christian Medical College Vellore (CMC) is a large multi-speciality teaching hospital located in Tamil Nadu, India, about 140km to the west of Chennai. It is a not for profit, unaided institution, funded almost entirely by patient fees. It vision is to “seek to be a witness to the healing ministry of Christ, through excellence in education, service and research”.
It was founded in 1900, when an American, Dr. Ida Sophia Scudder, opened a small dispensary and 1-bedded clinic in Vellore. Responding initially to the needs of women and children, she began training programmes for nurses, compounders and later doctors. Through her hard work, leadership and inspiration it has grown into one of the leading hospitals and medical educational and research  institutes in India.
In line with the Founder’s vision, CMC offers high quality services to people from all economic backgrounds, with a special concern for the disabled, disadvantaged, marginalized and vulnerable. Patients can opt for private consultations and to be admitted in private, air-conditioned wards, while general patients enjoy high quality services at affordable rates, but with more basic facilities. Many patients from below the poverty line are given free or subsidised treatment.
CMC’s main focus is on the medical needs of India, but we welcome patients from abroad who wish to come here. However we do not provide any special facilities or packages to such patients, nor can we make any arrangements regarding travel or accommodation outside the hospital for the patient or their attendants.
CMC offers services in all major medical specialities and almost every superspeciality. Many departments have world class expertise in specific areas but also provide services of a more general nature. CMC is particularly well known for departments such as Gasteroenterology, Neurosciences and Haematology (where it is a national leader in the treatment of rare blood disorders and bone marrow transplantation). However it also gives high importance to less prominent specialities such as Rheumatology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Developmental Paediatrics and Palliative Care.
