Trust & Hospital
HFINE is an independent institute of The Bandra Holy Family Hospital Society, which also administers the super-specialty Holy Family Hospital at Bandra in Mumbai. The institute's student-nurses receive their clinical experience and internship at this state-of-the-art medical facility, whose unenviable record in medical education and patient care has made it a leading brand in the country.

The Holy Family Hospital itself had humble beginnings, starting out as a private maternity nursing home run by a general practitioner in suburban Bandra. As the healthcare needs of the suburbs grew, the nursing home was handed over to the Medical Mission Sisters in 1953.

Rechristened the 'Holy Family Hospital', the institution set a tradition while catering to the needs of the suburbs and beyond. More than two decades later, the Medical Mission Sisters were ready to hand over the hospital to the Archbishop of Bombay.

The Archbishop finally conferred this privilege on the Congregation of the Ursulines of Mary Immaculate 1978. The hospital has since been nurtured and developed into one of the country's most coveted super-specialty medical institutions in the country.
