Fatima Clinic has been established in the year 1958 by Bishop Conrard De Vito then the Bishop of Lucknow. The first missionary doctor, a specialist in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Dr. Raffaela Scolletta of Italy expressed her desire to go back to her native place. Then Bishop Conrard invited Medical sisters of St. Joseph (MSJ) from Kerala to serve the people of Lucknow as their primary objective was healing ministry.
Medical Sisters of St. Joseph took charge of the two bedded Fatima Clinic in 1969 and looked after the health care requirements of Lucknow and adjoining areas. A marked difference took place over the years and today it is a 220 bedded hospital with all possible facilities. The growth of the Fatima hospital is also inseparably linked to the growth and expansion of the North Indian mission of the MSJ. Being the first hospital outside the Kerala, it played a pioneering role and acted as a base for farther expansion in North India. St. Joseph’s Hospital at Gomti nagar is one of its extension works and today it is an independent registered society. There are 14 health care centers in North India under the supervision of the Medical sisters of St. Joseph.
