[singlepic id=278 w=320 h=240 float=none]

The first ct scan unit in Manali ever was inaugurated by Shri Kaul Singh Thakur on the 7th of Agusut in a grand function in the Lady Willingdon Hospital Manali. All the staff put together an exemplary performance, and a seamless program with songs, dances and a cultural program, topped off by a delectable feast in tradtional dham style.

We thank God for this great blessing to Manali, and know it was only possible because of the love for God, expressed by many to Manali through donations which made this possible.

Oxygen manifold and pipeline – breathe easy now

A new oxygen manifold, automatic panel and alarm system and piping through the whole hospital was commissioned with prayer yesterday (1st of July 2013). We thank God for this provision through the TOUCH Ministry. We also changed the oxygen delivery ports, and now will have oxygen in all areas we need it for patients.  The panel has inbuilt alarms and safety systems which allow us all to breathe easier.

Cardiac health mela today

A health mela will be organised on the school grounds today focussing on cardiac care. Heart disease is rapidly becoming a bane in the valley. Preventive measures focussing on early detection, lifestyle modifications, dietary advice and samples of healthy foods will be on display. Interactive sessions at various stalls, dental and physiotherapy recommendations, and videos of heart related topics will be on display. There will be a booth for children for crafts, activities, and a tent in the shape of a heart to facilitate understanding of what actually goes on in this muscled chamber. And of course, food for all.

Watch this space!

Farewell to Jane and Gareth

We bid a fond farewell to Ms. Jane, a nurse from the UK who volunteered with us for the past three months and helped out in our emergency room. She adapted well to the mayhem that characterizes the emergency room swinging to the quick efficiency that is demanded there. We thank her for her help.  Mr Gareth, her husband, helped out with the Daystar school, i believe they also had a great time with him.

Safe trip home!

OTRS is now live in Mission Hospital

OTRS (Open source ticket request system) is now live in Mission Hospital Manali. All departments will now be able to send and receive paperless requests and requisitions for work, including notes and interdepartmental communications. These are time logged, deadline tagged and evaluated prior to being escalated if necessary.

We now look forward to our staff using it. It will indeed mean learning a new work culture, which will take some getting used to. However, in these years, the staff have learnt so many new things which has made their work so much more efficient, and we hope this system will further that efficiency and accountability.

We thank eStomi  for developing this for us at highly discounted prices and bless them for it.

State Bank of India donates new vehicle

The State Bank of India donated a new upper end Scorpio to the hospital on the 6th of May 2013. Mr. Amulya Sahu, General Manager handed over the keys to Dr. Philip Alexander in a small function held at the hospital. This scorpio will be a welcome addition to our vehicles, all of which are over ten years old and with many a mile on their odometers. We thank the State Bank of India for their generosity and their consideration. This vehicle will be used to conduct medical camps in the surrounding villages, and will also be used to take teams to distant locations to conduct camps. We thank God for this provision which came to us a surprise, and met an existing, but unmentioned need at our hospital.

Orthopedic camp in Manali

Manali, though very picturesque, is difficult to access by road. Just yesterday, a bus fell into the river, killing 37 people. There is no orthopedic surgeon as yet in Manali, though we look forward to the return of Dr. Dennis Martin, who is currently being trained as one in CMC Vellore.

One can very well imagine the extent of the need of orthopedic care, considering all the other falls and breaks that the young and old are succeptible to anyway. Dr. Kenny David is an orthopedic surgeon and spine specialist who is currently conducting a camp till the 10th of May. He has already seen a huge number of patients and is operating every day. Many of these patients would have to travel to chandigarh to get the surgical attention that he is now providing them. We thank both Kenny and his wife, Judy, for their help.  A separate news item will come on what Dr. Judy is doing, so watch this space!
