About Us

St. Sebastian's Hospital in Cherupuzha, Kannur, is one of the most renowned hospitals in the area. Countless locals in Cherupuzha have placed immense trust in the practitioner over the years.

St Sebastian's Hospital at its 55 years summaries our journey of love and service in the health Care Sector. The St. Sebastian’s Hospital was established by the medical sisters of St. Joseph way back in 1966 to cater the health needs of poor migrants and agricultural labourers at a time when malaria, jaundice, cholera, diarrhoea and the like took lives in hundreds and there no health facilities around.

A dream turned to reality for the residents in and around Cherupuzha when St. Sebastian’s Hospital opened with 5 beds and 1 doctor.

The hospital provided one of the first full time doctor in the region. The services of the centre was well appreciated by the people in the region and the centre has hence been a beacon of hope to nearly 500 patients on daily basis. The hospital caters to holistic needs of the patients and provides pastoral care services.

The hospital now has a bed strength of 50 and provides specialty care related to general medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, dermatology and ent. The hospital also provides 24 hour casualty, icu, nicu, labour room, ambulance, laboratory, pharmacy, x-ray services, blood storage, covid lab, ultrasound etc.


Improving patient care has become a priority for all health care providers with the overall objective of achieving a high degree of patient satisfaction. Greater awareness among the public, increasing demand for better care, keener competition, more health care regulation, the rise in medical malpractice litigation, and concern about poor outcomes are factors that contribute to this change.

The St. Sebastian’s Hospital is one such centre which seek to provide timely, quality services to the people with the values that we hold dear as the people of God. The present infrastructures and facilities does not cope up the public health demand and will raise questions about better health access.
