The mission's effort to establish an institution to engage in the Ministry of Healing resulted in setting up its first unit relating to cardiac care in June 1987 in the hired premises of another hospital in the Mecca of Health Care in India Chennai. Within a short period, from this humble abode, the Madras Medical Mission moved in 1995 to its own premises at Mogappair, a residential suburb of Chennai city, an aesthetically designed eight storeyed building around lush green surroundings. Under the patronage of Mother Theresa, this monumental edifice was inaugurated in the presence of luminaries such as Dr.Christiaan, Barnard, pioneer of the Heart Transplant from Africa, Dr.PantpisSakornpant, who has done the largest number of heart and lung transplants in Asia and doyens of the cardiac world, Dr.Dominique Metras (France), Sir Terrence English (U.K), Dr.Richard Engelmen (U.S.A), Sir Donald Ross (U.K.) and many more.
