The excellent service rendered by the doctors and nurses in the Christian hospitals has won the hearts of millions of people. In spite of the availability of hospitals with advanced facilities near to their homes, many prefer to undergo major treatment in a Christian hospital. Some of these hospitals are world renowned as a result of their excellent medical care, kind service, and their ability to handle medically challenging cases.

Custom and lifestyle:
There are about thirty mission hospitals in South India. Among them, the leading hospital of international repute is the Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore. Vellore is located in the State of Tamilnadu in South India. About 3,500 to 4,000 outpatients visit this hospital every day. Besides, a large number of inpatients from all parts of India are admitted with complicated medical cases. Among the patients coming to CMC for treatment, majority of them are from West Bengal, who travel by train covering over 1,700 Kms. They have an unflinching faith in the medical treatment rendered at CMC. People who visit these hospitals are looking for hope, comfort, real peace and true love which only the Scripture can offer. Copies of Scripture portions are made available to all who would like to have them. A counselling fellowship has been started in the vicinity of CMC, under 'Sow the Word' Ministries. Many are also responding to the contact address given at the back of the Scriptures and write to us or the Chaplaincy Department of the concerned hospital asking for more information and Scriptures.
The specially developed Scriptures: 'True Friend', 'Daddy, Where are you?', Fear Not', 'Assurance of God's Help', 'Meditation in Sick Bed', 'Answer to your problems', 'Life Forever', etc., have been appreciated by people and have been translated into many languages.
