Hospitals are basic requirements for living a healthy life in today’s world. And with increasing pollution and change in diet and lifestyle, People are getting more diseases than ever. That means the need for hospitals is also increasing every day. A hospital as per Wikipedia is a health care institution that provides treatment to diseases with specialized and trained medical staffs and equipment. It has emergency department for treating extreme cases like of heart attack, fire and road accidents.
Hospital in a basic requirement but it is really unfortunate when people don’t get this basic need. In Nepal as well there are many places without hospitals. It has caused untimely death of many people. This situation specially prevails in remote areas of Nepal. In absence of hospitals People die of even the smallest disease. And the situation is even bad when there are hospitals but no doctors. Doctors don’t want to go and work in remote area. This has cost many People their lives. And in many places the scenario is such that even if there are hospitals there are so poorly equipped that it is of no use.
In the most developed cities as well sometime hospitals are very poorly equipped. People often travel abroad for better treatment major destinations being India, USA, Thailand and so on. Still there are many diseases that can’t be treated in Hospitals here but we can’t deny the fact we have developed a lot in the few past year. There are many good and well equipped hospitals. Today in the article we are making list of those hospitals:

The hospital offers all kinds of surgeries that were previously not available in Nepal. From my past experience as well Nepal mediciti is one stop solution in health care. It has got very good environment and team of nurses and doctors. At similar fee like other hospitals it offers better service and care. The environment is also quite good and as soon as you enter the premises you can see the good infrastructure.

Kathmandu Model Hospital
Kathmandu Model Hospital is one of the oldest hospital in Nepal. It is a 18 bed hospital in Putalisadak, Kathmandu founded in 1993. But the hospital has expanded and now has capacity of 100 beds. It is community hospital dedicated solely in service providing. It operates and works in accordance with PHECT. With the belief that service should be patient centered, KMH operates with full dignity. And it is quite affordable than the hospitals listed in the article. The hospital follows the principle of removing human sufferings not just curing diseases and to help those who can’t afford for medical care. The hospital drives with motto that health care should be accessible to everyone, rich or poor.
When we talk about hospitals there is no way we forget Bir Hospital, the oldest hospital in Nepal. I don’t think there is anyone who hasn’t heard of Bir hospital. Bir Hospital is government owned hospital solely focused on delivering health care. But in recent years the condition of Bir hospitals has been deteriorating. With many private hospitals with better facilities Bir hospital could not cop up with it. The infrastructure and equipment were so poorly built that people stopped going to Bir Hospital. Only those who can’t afford other hospitals stared going to Br Hospital because of its cheaper fees being government hospital.
But today the scenario is different, Multiple efforts have been made to improve the situation of Bir hospital. Now with better facility and services Bir Hospital is again maintaining its reputation. People have again started trusting and visiting the hospital. The government and many INGOs and NGOs started working for Bir hospital. So now the condition has improvised.
There is now systematic ticket counter, well equipped labs and well-built infrastructures. The establishment of Trauma center will add another asset to it. By the end of 2020 Bir hospital is to add 100 beds to existing 550 beds. Likewise, Surgical block construction is going on rapidly. We can be more hopeful about the future of Bir Hospital in future.
