Okhaldhunga Community Hospital, UMN’s smaller hospital with 85 beds, is however the largest hospital not only in the district but for the neighbouring districts Solukhumbu (Mt Everest’s district) and Khotang, receiving patients who travel in on journeys of several hours or even days. Their journeys may even involve being carried for hours until they reach a motorable road. This hospital treats 36,000 outpatients every year and admits 6000 cases, including delivering around 1,300 babies and performing over 2,000 surgical procedures annually. Learn more about the hospital here.

Running a hospital requires an enormous amount of funding – as we know from the NHS in the UK! While patient fees cover a large proportion of the costs, for Okhaldhunga Community Hospital there is an ongoing need for funding to fully cover:
- General running costs
- Assisted treatment costs through the Medical Assistance Fund (for those who cannot afford to pay the fees, or those covered by insurance schemes which don’t cover the full cost of their treatment).*
