NOH should be developed into a teaching institution: Dr. Koirala

Kathmandu, July 10: Nepali Congress leader and Member of Parliament Dr. Shekhar Koirala has said that the Nepal Orthopedic Hospital in Jorpati should be developed as an educational institution as well.

After inspecting the hospital services and available facilities, Dr. Koirala said that this hospital should be developed as an educational institution for post-graduate studies along with orthopedic treatment. Taking information about the latest condition of the hospital, the treatment system and its challenges, Dr. Koirala assured that he will do his best to arrange a regular budget for the hospital from the state and the necessary regular training for the human resources working there and for the modernization of the hospital.

On the occasion, the medical director of the hospital, Dr. Kailash Bhandari, briefed about the latest situation and problems of the hospital. He requested Dr. Koirala to lobby for arranging government budget on a regular basis.

Nepal Orthopaedic Hospital (NOH) was established in the premises of the Nepal Disabled Association (NDA) at the Khagendra New Life Centre in Jorpati in Kathmandu in August 1998. Its sole purpose has been to provide quality orthopedic care, at an affordable price, of which most Nepalese have been deprived. It’s mission is to ensure and fulfill the need for quality orthopedic care to the people of this country with the 100 beds.

Affordability and accessibility in health care is important aspects in health care delivery. Majority of people of Nepal are poor having low living standards with less paying capacity. As per constitution of Nepal health care services is fundamental right of citizen of Nepal, despite health care service deliveries are out of pocket in our country, shared Dr Bhandari.
