We the management and staffs of St. Joseph's hospital, Manjummel are ordained to fulfill the dream, and vision of our founder Dr. Bro. Nicholas Verouvan TOCD. A dream of serving the suffering and needy and a vision to be a prominent community member known for meeting the healthcare needs of the entire community through incomparable patient care in the name of Jesus and the Carmelite Order. Bro. Nicholas wished that St. Joseph's hospital be a refuge for people of all caste and creed where everyone is well and happy.

The most famous prayer of our Indian civilization: 'Loka Samasta Sukihino Bhavantu' [i.e. May all the beings around the world be happy] reveals both the mentality and prayer of Brother. We all need to pray and strive to maintain a sound mind and a healthy body. Taking the effort to do so keeps the mind alert and active. May God satisfy our desires with good things and wait upon the Lord so that our strenght be renewed like eagles mount up with wings, to run and not be weary and to walk and not faint.
