Naini Papers Limited has formally adopted the L.D. Bhatt Sub-District Hospital Kashipur for its complete face-lifting. The hospital is one of the oldest and prominent government hospitals in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand State. The hospital was named after Lt. Sh. Laxman Dutt Bhatt, a renowned socialist and ex-member of the State Legislative Assembly. Lt. SH. Laxman Dutt Bhatt had donated a piece of approximately 20 acres of land to the state government to build this hospital with a noble idea to serve society at large. In 1964 this hospital came into existence to provide medical facilities to the people of Kashipur. It was so grand that it was discussed far and wide. People not only from Kashipur but from other nearby areas also used to come here for their treatment.
As time went by, due to lack of manage this space and funds, the maintenance of the hospital building could not be maintained as it should have been and due to this, some parts of the building can no longer be used given their dilapidated condition. Hospitals are also facing a shortage of medical and para-medical staff for a long time. The Heart Centre of the Hospital which is being run through PPP mode is also lacking behind due to lack of required infrastructure and equipment resulting in decreasing the footfall of the patients day by day and thus the poor section of the society is not getting its full benefit.
In view of all these problems, the District Administration and Naini have now come together for its complete rejuvenation through a CSR project. We are assured that after the completion of this project, this hospital will be known as an ideal hospital for other government hospitals in the state.
4 General Wards have been completely modernized by the Naini despite the period of COVID-19. All these four general wards are now providing modern facilities at par with the private hospitals. Inauguration of the renovated wards was recently virtually done by Mr. Trivendra Singh Rawat, Honorable Chief Minister of Uttarakhand.
At present, the Heart Care Center of the Hospital is being renovated by the Company. All the tasks related to ICU Ward, Doctors’ room, and Staff room work have been completed. We have spent more than Rs.100 lac till date on this ongoing project under our CSR.
