About CSI Lombard Memorial Hospital School of Nursing, Udupi

The Hospital was established on 15th June, 1923 with just six Inpatient beds. In those days, women patients had no access to Medical aid provided by male doctors. Dr. Eva Lombard, a medical missionary from Geneva, Switzerland, deeply moved by the plight of Indian women during the illness and confinement, started this Hospital, Exclusively for women and children. In 1951, when the need was felt, a male ward was added. At present the Hospital, has a capacity of 200 beds.

The early years of 1900s there were one or two male doctors in Udupi town.  But pregnant women had no access to medical aid provided by male doctors, and prayers to God for somehow sending help to relieve the plight of the pregnant at confinement were made endlessly.

The prayers did not vanish in the air; a young lady of fourteen got a divine-inspired desire to study medicine.  She was quite unaware of the need of Udupi or in India, nor was she aware that she was to come and be an instrument in God’s hands to relieve the sufferings of the pregnant women in such a far away land, among people whom she didn’t know nor had seen! But still, far away in Switzerland, unknown to her, her spirit caught the vision and answered those poignant calls. Obstacles were many on

the road of her preparing to become a doctor. But as the desire was not human, obstacles became only the strengthening of her determination.  At times her feeble physique mocked at her decision, but her strong spirit gave her the momentum to go on unwavering.
