IDRF Partner Since: 2016
Focus Area: Health
Project Title: Hospital capacity augmentation and remodeling
The multi-specialty hospital treats about 100,000 patients in a year. Due to the deterioration in provision of medical services by the government hospitals and unaffordable costs of private providers, this hospital is experiencing a rising demand from poor patients. With partial government and donor assistance, the hospital is expanding its existing facilities to add two more floors and additional equipment. IDRF has supported RKMS’s expansion and modernization program by financing medical equipment and air-conditioning of the newly added patient-care wards.
