Arogya Sandhan has already purchased land measuring 1 Bigha, 4 cottahs i.e.17, 280 square feet at Arapanch village, PO & PS - Sonarpur, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal.
LAND is already purchased. The site measuring 17280 sq. ft. south facing with 30 feet wide road along with a fresh water canal, other side of which is Firm House of Ram Krishna Mission at Village Arapanch, Mouza Natagachhi P.O & P.S-Sonarpur, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal near Sonarpur Railway Station. It is only four km away from Railway Station.
More over the villages under Sonarpur police station namely Natagachhi, Bidyadharpur, Ramchandrapur, Kalikapur, Champahati are the living place of almost 500,000 populations mainly belonging to poor day land labourers, farmers, lower middle class and which also acts as the entry point to the South 24 Parganas including the inaccessible Sundarbans. This part of south 24 parganas has no nursing home or government or private hospitals. Even there are no qualified doctors regularly available.
People have to travel at least fourteen to sixteen kilometers before they can reach any government hospital even for institutional delivery or treatment of common childhood disorders. It becomes very difficult for the people during emergencies when they are harassed at every step in trying to get the patients admitted in these centers.
So, the need of the hour is a hospital for at least women and children, which will provide affordable, quality and standardized treatment services to all strata of the society. In this situation the entire responsibility falls on the NGOs and the social development organizations to take the lead and come forward to provide quality treatment facilities to the large number of masses living below poverty line. In this area mentioned above, organization like AROGYA SANDHAN, SANTOSHPUR is best place to take up this huge responsibility because of its location being at Santoshpur and the quality health care services being rendered since the year 2000 to the best of satisfaction of the locality.
It will be a self-sustaining hospital, where the profit, if any, will be used entirely for future growth & expansion of the hospital. The hospital is intended to serve the financially disadvantaged people primarily. The poorest will be given the services at almost negligible (token fees) which will be possible only through cross-subsidy where there will be three rates for the bed and treatment charges. So the income from 75 beds will be covering up for the expenses of running all the 100 beds.
A stand-alone Pediatric hospital, give in our societal realities, is not a sustainable proposition unless it is strongly supported by large annual grants that are unlikely to flow. To maintain the primary objective of treating children and special children, this should be a Gynecology (including Obstetrics) and Pediatrics hospital along with facilities for pharmacy, clinical and pathological laboratory.
In this part of the country there is a demand for treatment centre for special persons of autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Multiple Disabilities and Mental Illness. Now there is no such specialized treatment centre in Kolkata city where these special persons can have treatment in a barrier free environment without the bedside support of parents.
Specially trained nurses or nurse-cum-caregivers, required apparatus and equipments congenial for challenged persons, with specially trained doctors will be made available for treatment of challenged persons.
There is a demand for safe, quality and affordable gynecological and maternity services in this area. The revenue from this side is expected to support the Pediatric and Neonatal services, which take a much longer time, if ever, to break even. This will be the first project of its kind in south 24 parganas and that will offer a significant marketing advantage.
A 100-bedded hospital is recommended with a mix of 20(for challenged persons) 30 (G. & O.) and 50 (Pediatric & NICU). The bed break-up includes 15 beds for challenged persons with 5 ITU and 30 beds for Gynecological ailments, 20 beds for delivery cases attached to a well-equipped labor and an OT room and a recovery room. The pediatric facilities will include 20 beds and 15 beds for medical and surgical cases respectively and 15 beds for NICU (level 3). This unit will have an exclusive OT for operating on pediatric cases.
The hospital will provide Secondary level care in the entire spectrum of G. & O. and Pediatric/Neonatal services including Laparoscopic surgery. It will strengthen the concept of safe motherhood and child survival services.
It is expected that the hospital will be completed in two phases spanning over a period of 48 months (as the first phase is already over and functioning). The 1st phase which comprises of outdoor facilities, laboratory and diagnostic facilities and pharmacy has already been running since 15.05.2009.
The basis for the figures given in the Summary Project Proposal is on practical experience and accumulated experience of others involved in the execution and running of similar size hospitals.
Arogya Sandhan wants to implement the project under joint venture with like minded NGOs for the benefit of society.
