New Year Message by the Director 2024

It is the time of the year when we look back and are grateful for all the blessings we received as an institution and to look forward in anticipation of the challenges and the work to be done. We go forward into the new year assured of God’s presence and blessings and the knowledge that together, there is nothing we cannot do.

Over the past 123 years, CMC Vellore has consistently served the poor and needy; the vision of our founder has been preserved through the ages. Dr. Ida had made it her life purpose and identity to provide health care to those without access to it. Outreach, charity, education, and empowerment have been her identity ever since. We derive our purpose and identity by following our calling and in the footsteps of our founder.

This New Year, let us be aware and reaffirm our identity and what we mean to others as individuals and as a community to serve and not expect to be served. We are here by design, and our purpose here is divinely crafted. In the face of all challenges and adversity, may we be blessed to stay true to this calling.

In I Corinthians 12:27, we are identified as part of the body of Christ. Let this new year also be an opportunity to refresh and renew. A newly refurbished self with a renewed vigour to fulfill the purpose of another year that God has added to us.

With this renewed awareness and resolution, I wish you all a blessed and joyous new year!

With Regards,

Dr. Vikram Mathews, Director
