The Catholic Church in India has always played an important role in the fields of education, health care, social welfare and development of the community. The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) in response to a felt need decided to establish a Medical College and Teaching Hospital “to provide for the relief of suffering, to promote and preserve the health of the community and to give an example of enlightened training in dedicated service, which is characteristic of Christian educational and social welfare institutions.”
St. John’s Medical College and Hospital and School of Nursing were started in 1963, 1975 and 1980 respectively at Bangalore by the C.B.C.I. Society for Medical Education. The School of Nursing was upgraded to the College of Nursing in 1989. In 1994 all the Institutions were brought under the common name: St. John’s National Academy of Health Sciences.
