Update on Madhipura Christian Hospital

Not that long ago, EHA’s Madhipura Christian Hospital was considering closing its doors. Its district is one of the poorest, and there was rampant corruption and a strong caste system in place. The few patients who came in traveled on horseback since they had no cars or motorcycles. In this underdeveloped area, 63 percent of the people live in poverty.

But over time more staff members were added and the hospital grew. Five years ago they had just 70 people on staff, and now they have grown to employ 230 people. The team at Madhipura seeks to provide quality health care at an affordable cost. In the last year, they treated 37,400 outpatients and 3,800 inpatients. The staff delivered 1,270 babies and performed 1,118 surgeries.
