To understand his vision,

When Ashley, the veteran ophthalmologist and renowned and respected eye surgeon chose to build the best eye hospital in his home state, he preferred to establish that in a remote village in Kozhencherry where he was born, ignoring the commercial disadvantage and loss of opportunity. The Mulamoottil Eye Hospital founded by Dr Ashley is the best in South India with the finest technologically advanced facilities and has the singular goal of providing affordable quality treatment to every single person. When the marginalized and the poor get world-class treatment closer home, without having to travel to multi-speciality hospitals in metro cities, the characteristically ebullient Ashley says his objective is met.

a pioneering vision

Dr Ashley was born into an illustrious family of traditional Ayurveda Netra Chikitsa (ancient healthcare science for ophthalmology) practitioners, whose rich heritage and history of tradition go back 5 centuries. The young Ashley grew up watching patients coming from far and wide to get their eyes treated by his grandfather. Despite donning the regalia and crown of his family’s traditionally transferred ancestral inheritance and repository of sacred wisdom and knowledge in Ayurvedic ophthalmology, Ashley chose to pursue a disparate path in allopathy.

The high altitude degrees

Dr Ashley Thomas Jacob Mulamoottil acquired several medical degrees like MBBS, MS (Ophth), DNB (Ophth), M.Ch (Ophth), MRCOphth (London), FICO & FRSH and he went on to add a few additional degrees outside medicine like EMBA from IIT Bombay, MBA at Washington University at St. Louis & SELP from Harvard Business School, USA to his impeccable credentials. Despite scaling so high in academics, Ashley continues to be an avid student. He was fascinated with being first from childhood and has always achieved the numero uno status in everything he has attempted, be it basketball, hockey, biking, business or studies. His charming obsession for studies led him to establish one of the finest schools in the country with exceptionally meritorious facilities for both students and teachers.

School for today,
education for tomorrow

The Mulamoottil Central School founded by Dr. Ashley has more to teach than the syllabus it deals with. This 25000 sq. ft. smart school is constructed in a sprawling ten acres of lush green land in the lap of nature with cutting edge facilities but without cutting a single tree or altering the ecology of the ground on which the school stands. Ashley, the committed conservationist, has planted more trees in this wide green campus than the number of bricks used in constructing the school building. The school is home to natural ponds with many species of fishes, trees and plants from all over the world that provide a cozy, comfortable and convenient habitat for a variety of birds, making it a perfect sanctuary for flora, fauna and students alike. Each tree with its scientific name displayed next to it, helps the children recognize the plant and learn its botanical name.

The Nostradamus
of medicine

Dr Mulamoottil’s rich expertise, enormous experience, phenomenal knowledge, incredible passion, amazing analytical skills and clairvoyance have made him accurately predict medical trends like the Nostradamus. Just a month after the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, Dr Ashley had famously written on his social media pages that the best preventive solution for coronavirus was mouthwash gargle as it destroys the viral load and colonization of virus in the throat. A few months later, the researchers at Penn State College of Medicine, in the United States have officially confirmed the power of mouthwash in barricading COVID-19

the poor & marginalized

When Ashley began spearheading the family’s financial business, his focus was not to become the largest player but to become the most respected financial institution. His role and goal were to empower the marginalized and downtrodden. Under Dr Ashley’s perspicacious perspective and leadership, Mulamoottil Financial Services (MFS) have developed many helpful financial products to free the unbanked community from the clutches of mercenary moneylenders and to protect the poor with the warmth of secure financial backing.

the world digitally

Among the thousands of stagnant and moribund social media handles dumbed down on digital platforms, you’ll find the Facebook page of Dr Ashley, the most liked doctor on Facebook globally. His sagacity and his belief in the power of digital media made him one of the most sought after doctors on Facebook across the world. He adopted social media during its advent and accumulated a large fan base in its nascent phase. This most liked doctor on Facebook has also authored many books and articles, one of them of course is in collaboration with Facebook.

A versatile master

Dr Ashley devotedly follows the adage, “knowledge is power” and he uses that knowledge to lead people to the stairways of victory. After proving his mettle as an adroit surgeon, agile businessman, astute entrepreneur and an accomplished management graduate, Dr Ashley took over the reins of teaching the touchstones of success to his students. With his diverse portfolio of skill sets, he is today the Corporate Advisory Board Member at IIT-Bombay and a Strategic Advisor at Olin Business School at Washington University at St. Louis and a few other celebrated institutions.
