The Beginning

"Serving the sick and needy"

Mr. Richard Hickling, the Master Evangelist, who was not medically trained & his insight in to the needs of the people, especially the women dying in labor, grew as urge in him to persuade the Lonodon Mission to built a hopsital in Chikkaballapur.

In the year 1909, it was a moment of vision to reality of Mr. Richard Hickling and the first stone for a 60 bedded Hospital was laid. On 26th February 1913, Mr. P. F. Bowring who was then the Deputy Commissioner of Kolar District inaugurated the Hospital and the doors were opened to patients and Mission Hospital took its first step toward a remarkable history. The hospital, was first named after Rev. Ralph Wardlaw Thompson for his long devoted services of Foreign Society of London Missionary Society and was called as Wardlaw Thompson Hospital. Later the name was changed to CSI Mission Hospital. Within a short time, the Hospital expanded its reach to larger community.

When the Mission Hospital first began its operations in 1913, there was no insulin for diabetes or cure for polio. Penicillin had not yet been developed and open-heart surgery was only a dream. Since that time, there have been many medical breakthroughs — yet one remained constant.
