The ever increasing medical needs have posed a challenge to the capabilities of this most efficiently run hospital in the region as it has been running over its capacity for the last number of years. Though our Hospital has 55 Beds, we have, on an average, 75 In-patients undergoing treatment at any given time (running at 130-140% capacity). And though our NICU has 9 Beds, we have, on an average, 10 ~ 12 babies undergoing treatment at any given time. Some of our Patients travel for hours to reach our Hospital and we just don’t have the heart to turn them away, even when the Hospital is full. However, this is making the situation exceedingly difficult to manage and it has become very clear to us that we need to build a new, bigger and a more modern, 200 Bed Hospital, as the demand for this is increasing day after day.
The situation is becoming critical with more and more patients being referred to the hospital.
