Kirpal Sagar Charitable Hospitalthe medical hot-spot in Kirpal Sagar
The medical field was the first thing that went into operation in Kirpal Sagar. After just under a year, the first treatment room was set up in the first multifunctional building in 1982.
Rashly, a drug depot and a waiting room were added. Over time, what began as a small practice grew larger. Rooms for patients became necessary, fixed office hours replaced help when needed. Finally, a building tailored to the needs of a hospital was needed, which started operation in 1995.
Now, in a two-storey building, there were rooms for patients, the outpatient clinic, a patient admission, a small laboratory, a medicine dispenser and an on-call room available. On the upper floor, an area for operations was set up, with an operating theatre, changing rooms and an adjoining recovery room. The new operating theatre was commissioned in 2007.
This was also where the cataract surgeries that had previously been performed by mobile teams from government hospitals since the 1990s could now be performed.
The new building was built in traditional brick construction, also for reasons of time and cost. At the same time, a functional wing in modern concrete stud construction was built next door, in which the stationary treatment was to be accommodated on a long-term basis. Its ground floor was inaugurated in 2012 and currently houses the emergency room, dialysis, X-ray, laboratory, a large waiting hall for outpatient departments and consultation hours. In the future, an air-conditioned operating theatre area is to be built on the first floor. Preparations for the infrastructure, such as a better power connection and a separate emergency power generator, are underway.
