Due to lack of transport facilities and distance to primary health centres, women were finding difficult during child birth. One day at night, a woman in her birth pangs was on her way in a bullock cart to the hospital to Manvi .The roads were in very bad state with huge pits. The woman who was in labour pain was thrown out of the cart due to an accident. The woman delivered on the road and the mother and the child were dead. The Jesuit Fathers, who had a dream of building a hospital in Pannur, heard about the incident. In order, to solve the various health problems of Pannur and surrounding villages, where people do not have health care facilities built the Health centre. Due to the medical care needed, the presence of the dedicated staff, this health centre was entrusted to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Tarbes of Mysore Province.
