Darjeeling District Hospital

Darjeeling, being the district headquarters as well as the main town in Darjeeling district, is home to many public as well as private health care units. Among them, Darjeeling District Hospital, merits special mention. The unit, also known as the Sadar Hospital, is run by the government of West Bengal. Along with providing medical treatment to a large number of patients, the hospital also offers Certificate Course for female health workers or nurses. Incidentally, duration of such course is one year and six months.

It has to be understood that the Sadar Hospital does not only cater to the needs of Darjeeling town; patients from far flung areas also come to this 308 bedded hospital for their treatment. As a result, just as any other government hospital, it remains much too crowded most of the time. Moreover, such congestion has created its own sets of problems. For long, maintenance work has been neglected and there has been deterioration in the infrastructure. Fortunately, things have changed for the better now. With the fifty crores grant provided by the State Government, there has been an all round progress.

Darjeeling District Hospital And Its many Faces

Construction of a thirty-bedded Intensive Therapy Unit is in progress. The unit will have ventilators as well as monitors to check the heart beats of critical patients. A color Doppler, which is a higher version of ultrasonography machine, has already been acquired by the hospital. CT scan machine is also on the cards. The hospital was so far forced to do without such essential gadgets and even critical patients had to travel 80 Km to Siliguri for their treatment. 

A rain harvesting system is also underway to solve the water problem for the hospital. The recently launched Matri Yaan Prakalpa has introduced 23 vehicles; these will provide expectant mothers free transport to the hospital for delivery. Moreover, there are plans to build three storied building behind the hospital. The first storey will house the sick babies; the other two will have psychiatric and the chest department. Indeed, once the full project is complete patients will no longer be forced to travel to plains for their treatment. The hospital will shortly be in position to provide all kinds of facilities for the people of Darjeeling.
