The significant feature of FMCI is the fact that nearly 70% of the services are either free of charges or heavily subsidized.

Poor Patients Fund :

 

The Management has set up various funds like the Cancer Patients Fund, Snake Bite Fund, Mother Teresa Fund, Lawrence Fernandes Foundation Fund for the treatment of renal failure patients, Leprosy Relief Fund, Vailankanni Poor Patient Fund, Psychiatry Poor Patient Fund, etc.  to assist poor patients coming to the Hospital.  These funds are built up by the contribution of people of goodwill and also sometimes the patients and their relatives contribute to these funds.

 

 

Out-reach programme :

 

The Institution has set up three urban health centres to provide medical care to the poor people in the urban area.   The doctors and other Para-medical staff from the hospital are posted to these centres and services of the medical personnel are made available round the clock.  Even medicines are given free of cost to these patients.

 

There are seven rural health centres managed by the Institution.  In these centres also the medical and nursing personnel of the hospital provide their service to the patients.   Besides these, Homoeopathic Medical Colleges also conducting 10 health clinics in the rural areas taking  medical care to the door steps of  the  people. 

 

People of goodwill are invited to assist the Institution in carrying out this mission of healing and comforting the sick people, specially the poor and the marginalized. Besides the curative care, a number of health awareness programmes are conducted not only in the Hospital but also at various centres of the Districts of Udupi, South Kanara and Kasargod.   Health check up camps are conducted regularly in the remote and rural areas to provide care to the people.   In fact in the year 2009, more than 25,000 patients were provided free care by conducting health check up camps in distant areas.

 

 

 

Freeship to deserving students :

 

1.   Every year not less than 10 nursing students and 5 students each of all para-medical courses are offered full free ship.  This enables them to get education free of cost.

2.   20% seats of medical, nursing and Para-medical courses are reserved for economically poor section of the society.   For these, fees are charged at a highly subsidized rate.  In fact it is 25% of the normal fees.  This puts a huge financial burden on the Institution.   However, the Institution is meeting its social obligation at a great cost.

 

 

Rehabilitation Services 

 

The rehabilitation unit became functional in the year 1965.This was mainly started as an occupational therapy for the patients disfigured by Leprosy. The Rehabilitation unit provides them work with so fr and smooth materials, causing no damage to them. This therapy really helps them to regain their sense of achievement and confidence.

The Rehabilitation unit produces beautiful block printed bed spreads and silk shawls , lovely wall hangings , scarves and  greeting cards with batic work on them and exquisitely prepared toys. A printing press is also a part of the Rehabilitation unit .the people working here spend their time making letter heads , invitations, envelopes and other material that are required in the hospital.

 

Leprosy work is not merely medical relief .It is transforming frustration in life into the joy of dedication , personal ambition into selfless service. The man with leprosy already suffers on account of his illness and segregation from society. Therefore one should not add to his misery.
