The Metas Group of Institutions
The Metas Group of Institutions is a part of the vast array of Educational and Medical institutions run by the Seventh Day Adventist Organization. Worldwide they operate 5590 educational establishments, including 114 Universities and Colleges. There are 162 hospitals and sanatoriums as well as 102 nursing homes.
The operations of Surat are managed by the Medical Educational Trust Association Surat of Seventh-day Adventist. Metas is one of the oldest educational and medical institutions operating in the city of Surat. Metas Adventist Hospital and Metas Adventist School are in operation since 1923 & 1942 respectively.
Metas Adventist College was established in Surat in 1998. The School, College, and Hospital were operated as separate units and were brought together under a common umbrella in order to cement the fragmented areas and build a consolidated platform for growth and development under the name 'Metas'. Metas today has spread its wings and has established schools, colleges, and hospitals in several places, namely Ranchi (Jharkhand), Nuzvid (Andhra Pradesh), and Vyara (Gujarat). The North East Adventist University, Jowai, Meghalaya is an added institution to the rich legacy that METAS upholds.
