Arpana Hospital, Haryana, India

 

Lighthouse of Hope & Healing

 

Arpana Hospital was started in 1980 for the rural folk of Haryana who had virtually no access to modern health care. The original 13-bed cottage hospital has gradually become a 100-bed modern health facility with 4 operation theatres, a well-equipped 12-bedded ICU, a Dialysis Unit, specialized clinics and daily outpatient clinics.

It provides affordable modern medical facilities to a population of over a million persons in 500 villages and towns.

No patient is turned away for not being able to pay.
