The late Metropolitan Joseph Mar Pachomios, of blessed memory, the former Metropolitan of Kandanad and the pioneer of Catholicate Centers, was born to Poovathumkal Iype Varkey and Annamma Valiyakattayil on June 19, 1926 at North Mulakulam. He had his schooling at St. Joseph's High School, Piravom. During the school days itself, he was initiated into the study of Syriac language, the Scriptures and priestly rites under the late Malpan Fr. Kuruvila Thomas Poovathumkal, his paternal great uncle. Leaving school, he completed the Intermediate Course at Catholicate College, Pathanamthitta. He did his Post-Graduation in History and Politics at St. Albert's College Ernakulam. He further pursued higher studies in theology at St. Michael's College, Cardiff, England.
JMP Medical Centre Piravom, the maiden venture of the trust having an inpatient capacity of 150 beds, is committed to provide quality treatment at affordable cost to the people living in the rural areas in and around piravom. Started as an outpatient clinic in a rented building in 1999, it has, now, grown into a full- fledged hospital having major departments like General Medicine, Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Orthopadics, ENT, Dermatology, General Surgery and Casualty. The hospital has been doing well thanks to the selfless service of the doctors and staff employed here. Special mention should be made of the department of General Medicine, Orthopaedics, Gynaecology and Paediatrics where the number of OP patients treated daily is around 350 on an average and this number is steadily on the increase.
