Bethany Medical Centre was established
in 1990 with a view to provide low cost high quality medical care to the
vast tribal population and an equal number of other settlers, who are
mainly farmers and small businesspersons in and around Attpapady.
Bethany Medical Centre is situated in an ideal location at Anaikatty hills on the border of Tamil Nadu and Kerala, thus enabling us to care for about 150 villages with a population of nearly two lakhs. Due to our specialization in Cardiology, General Surgery, and Maternity departments, we cater to patients from nearby cities such as Coimbatore also.
From a humble beginning of with only an out-patient clinic, under the leadership of Dr. K Muralidar MD, MNAMS, Bethany Medical Centre has now grown into a full-fledged referral unit.
