The Mission Hospital is open to all, regardless of religion or ability to pay, and serves a geographic area with a population of nearly 10 million. The compassionate staff provides excellent medical care to this greatly underserved population. The Kansa Village clinic serves more than 50 villages, reaching those who cannot get themselves to the hospital.
One of our closest partners is the LEAP Foundation and every year their team of doctors and nurses come to India for a week to perform cleft and lip palate surgeries. This gift to the children who receive it, is completely life changing, allowing them to again interact with other people, gain friends and a hope for their future.
CICM’s medical ministry also has a College of Nursing which offers a three-year Diploma in Nursing as well as a four year Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. The College of Nursing is associated with the State University (M.P.,) accredited by the Indian Nursing Council and State government for B.Sc. Nursing.

Not only do the graduates have an opportunity for a bright future with a fulfilling profession, but also many of them will use nursing to share the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.
