The Gaden Jangtse Thoesam Norling Monastery has established a clinic to cater to the health needs of the 20,000 Tibetan refugees in the Mundgod Dogueling Tibetan refugee’s settlement. The settlement didn’t have any clinic till 2001.
The staff consists of a Doctor who provides allopathic treatment, a dentist with a state-of-the-art dental wing, two Tibetan nurses (all remunerated), 12 health workers and four persons in the administration (non-paid monks) and one paid staff as secretary. There is an in-patient ward with 10 beds for additional surveillance of the patients. The clinic is equipped with an Ultrasound, Endoscopy, E.C.G machine, X-ray machine and well-stocked pharmacy. A medical doctor has been arranged who stays in the clinic premises making his services available round the clock. We have two visiting physicians who performs Endoscopy and Ultrasonography once a month.
The hospital’s aims are:
To address the health issues of the Tibetan community and the local Indians.
To develop this clinic into a multi-disciplined hospital with modern equipment.
To treat monks and nuns free of charge.
To treat the lay people for a moderate fee.
To set up medical camps in times of epidemics.
To refund half of the medical charges to the monks of Gaden Jangtse Monastery if any treatment had to be made outside the clinic.
To provide health education to monks, nuns and masses.
