Madras Medical Mission is a Social Enterprise inspired by the missionary zeal of Bishop Zachariah Mar Dionysius, Metropolitan of the Madras Diocese of the Orthodox Church of India. Strengthened by the devotion and commitment of the members of this Community at Chennai (erstwhile Madras city of TamilNadu ) who promoted the registered charitable society in 1982, it strives to participate in the healing ministry by seeking to foster an environment of caring, compassion and love that enables it to respond to patient needs in enviable ways.

From modest beginnings three decades ago, the synergy of proficient practitioners, prudential management and providential guidance has metamorphosed the Madras Medical Mission into an organization of excellence that promotes some of the finest super-speciality tertiary care medical institutions in India , with superlative infrastructure, leading edge technology and accomplished professionals.
