At the moment the hospital operates from 9am -5pm, including Sundays.The staff includes medical and homoeopathic doctors and nurses.
The hospital has two departments, an OPD (out-patient department) facility where we deliver ECG, X-rays, blood pressure check-up, injectables, homoeopathy medicines, as well as treating serious and minor accidental cases.Furthermore, the IPD (in-patient department) admits patients for 2 to 6 hours, under supervision of a doctor to treat them for more serious issues such as dehydration, typhoid, UTI and nebulisation in asthmatic cases.
