REPORT 2015 - 16
Burrows Memorial Christian Hospital at Alipur completed 15 years of being incorporated into EHA. The year was a challenging one as senior consultants left the hospital upon completion of their service obligation. Patient numbers and finances were affected but visiting consultants along with junior doctors sustained it. Johnson Singson provided stable leadership as SAO, supported by John, Nursing Superintendent and Sanjay, Principle Nursing School. The local authorities recognized the hospital and under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme with the Government, they received two phototherapy units & two baby warmers. Medical camps were conducted for tea garden laborers in remote and needy areas of the Tea Gardens through funding received under PPP. The coming year will see a stable medical leadership team with consultants coming in. Plans are being made to reposition and rebuild the hospital. New nursing school block and hostel is being planned. Ongoing community work will further be strengthened with a focused plan on reaching out to the community.
