Ncell donates to enhance health care

Ncell unveiled its new corporate social initiative in the health sector, ‘We Care’, and provided financial support of Rs 30 million to the country’s two leading health institutions, aiming to improve their services and make lasting impact on the health of thousands of Nepali people.
 
Under the initiative, Ncell handed over a cheque of Rs 15 million to Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Center (MCVTC) for setting up a world-class cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Mahendra Bhattachan, Security Director of Ncell handed over the cheque to Dr. Ratna Raj Poudel, Executive Director of MCVTC.
 
Ncell also provided Rs 15 million to Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) to construct a separate Kidney Treatment and Dialysis Center in the hospital. An advance of Rs. 4.5 million was released beforehand to commence the constructions whereas the remaining amount was decided to be released in different tranches as construction work progressed.
With the support, Manmohan Heart Centre will be able to operate more ICUs that will directly benefit heart patients needing advanced cardiothoracic treatment. This will enable the hospital to generate more cross-subsidy fund, thereby raising its capability to serve more poor and vulnerable people through free treatment. 
 
Likewise, Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital will gain a new kidney treatment, transplant and dialysis center equipped with elevator and RO water treatment plant. This will bring kidney treatment facilities under one roof, help the hospital to add more dialysis machines, increase its service capacity and bolster emergency dialysis service.
 
As the hospital provides treatment at lower rates, the support will benefit thousands of patients visiting the hospital every day. It will also help the hospital to bolster its cross-subsidy (welfare) fund, thereby benefiting the poor and needy patients that it serves for free.
