Equipment for Laparoscopic Theatres in Kerala

Cognizant Foundation has provided high-end medical equipment to equip the laparoscopic theatre for Jubilee Mission Hospital, Thrissur, Kerala. This project has increased the capacity of the Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of the hospital to provide quality services to the underserved women patients. Through this support, over 250 patients will benefit daily.

The Jubilee Mission Hospital is a charitable hospital that started in 1951 in Thrissur, Kerala. The hospital caters to the underprivileged patients in Thrissur, Palakkad and Malappuram districts of Kerala. It has been a referral center for complicated Gynaecology cases including Cancer surgeries for women. On average, the hospital caters to over 2000 outpatients and 1000 in-patients per day. Out of these, 70% are from poor socio-economic backgrounds.

CF has adopted “Promoting Women and Child Health” as one of its programme in Healthcare. The shortage of critical medical equipment in maternal and childcare hospitals is a barrier to deliver quality health services. Under this programme, CF supports various hospitals to build their capacity in maternal and childcare hospitals.
