The Hans Foundation Hospitals
The state of Uttarakhand, the birthplace of river Ganges known to be the cradle of Indian Civilisation, is in dire need of medical infrastructural support today. The Hans Foundation Hospitals (THF Hospitals) work tirelessly to provide professional and affordable health care to the masses within and around the state of Uttarakhand.
THF Hospitals with their two medical initiatives namely ‘The Hans Foundation Eye Care’ (THF EC) in Haridwar and ‘The Hans Foundation General Hospital' (THF GH) in Satpuli are striving hard to provide access to healthcare to those who cannot pay for their well-being. In addition to providing medical facilities at the hospital premises, the THF Hospital's staff also reaches out to the communities by holding regular medical camps even in the most remote terrains of the state.
The hospital staff conducts medical examinations in the residential area of the patient and provides them with free medicines if needed. The hospitals provide free-of-cost treatment and conveyance to the people who need surgery or advanced diagnoses and treatment.
Having provided free health care to lakhs of underprivileged people, THF Hospitals are being seen as a game-changer in the noble profession of medicine.
The Hans Foundation Eye Care, Haridwar
According to the estimates of the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.3 billion people around the globe have some kind of visual impairment, out of which 80 percent are avoidable. The leading cause of this being uncorrected refractive errors and cataracts, which gives an opportunity to philanthropic organisations such as the The Hans Foundation Eye Care to serve the needy and the underprivileged.
This hospital in Haridwar was established to provide affordable eye care to thousands of people through its satellite hospitals, vision centers and outreach camps.
THF EC is a 4-acre integrated campus, equipped with teaching, research, and educational facilities, it conducts examinations, investigations & surgeries and has screened over 3.3 lakh patients. With nearly 40 clinical staff members and about the same number in nonclinical staff, the hospital has provided surgical and post-operation care to over twenty two thousand patients, mostly underprivileged, with the help of its two state-of-the-art operation theatres and equipment.
The staff includes specialized Ophthalmologists, visiting consultants, and over 80 support personnel offering multiple sub-specialty care such as treatment for Cataract, Cornea, Occuloplasty, Squint, Vitreo-retina, Paediatric Ophthalmology, and Trauma services. The staff regularly conducts Cataract surgeries, Phacoemulsification, Glaucoma surgeries, Squint, Pterygium, Trauma, and Occuloplasty procedures to ensure that each patient gets the best treatment possible.
The Hans Foundation General Hospital, Satpuli
Nearly 66% of the Indian population resides in rural areas and a large percentage of that population lives below the poverty line, which leaves millions of Indians in need of basic health care. To bridge the widening gap between the increasing population and access to health care, THF GH, a 10-acre site in the Pauri district of the Himalayan region, provides emergency/trauma and all the major specialized services including General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Anesthesia, Paediatrics, ENT, Ophthalmology, Dental, and Radiology care.
THF GH is a compassionate endeavour to provide access to affordable quality medical care for the rural underprivileged in and around the state of Uttarakhand. With over 100 clinical staff and over 75 non-clinical staff members, the hospital has successfully completed over 4,000 surgeries, has catered to nearly 8,500 people in its in-patient department (IPD), and has provided health care services to nearly 2.30 Lakh people in the outpatient department (OPD).
The campus is a 150 bed full-fledged integrated multi-specialty facility catering to the Satpuli area's specific medical needs. It consists of two large hospital wings, a service building that houses the kitchen, dining, laundry, doctors and staff accommodations, a nurses hostel, and residential facilities for visiting doctors and guests.
The enormous medical complex not only provides quality medical assistance to those who live in and around the Pauri district but also to the ones who cannot afford proper treatment at the city hospitals of the state which is evident from the rising numbers of patients coming to the THF General Hospital.
