Khirsu Community Health Center: A Hospital On A Hillstation

From a Primary Health Center (PHC), Khirsu Government Hospital has just recently got upgraded to Community Health Center (CHC) with 1 permanent MBBS doctor assigned; 1 MBBS contract doctor; and 1 MBBS doctor doing an attachment duty (through bond) from Srinagar Base Hospital; and other hospital staffs: pharmacist, nurse, ANUMs, and other hospital personnel.

An ANUM training center and a hostel are also located at this hospital campus.

The hospital opens at 8 am to 2 pm Mondays to Saturdays in summer and 9 am to 3 pm in winter. It is an OPD service. Minor emergency cases are handled in the hospital while serious cases are referred to higher centers -Srikot, Srinagar or Pauri hospital or in Dehradun.
Delivery cases are quite less and are handled by nurse and ANUM.

GVK-EMRI  (call 108) provides emergency response services under PPP or Public Private Partnership framework and is ready on call anytime.

Housing facilities are provided for doctors and other hospital staffs. Electricity supplies come and go, sometimes for about 5-15 minutes or 1 hour to 12 hours especially when a major repair is going on.
Water supply, on the other hand, is problematic, especially during summer days. Water tank truck which comes from Pauri supplies to areas without water.

the towering building is the hospital~

Khirsu's location is situated in a very strategic point where a view of the Himalayas can be clearly visible in winter behind those cloud-covered mountains.

GMVN (Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam) Hotel and Restaurant is located just below the hospital.

These are the mountains visible from Khirsu
between December and early February.

a night and day of rain.~

  1. Doctor saheb aaye the pata laga? :)


    have fun ;)

  2. Oh yeah! I remember! Infinite cause they just can't afford to stand for their reality..so they convolute senselessly over and over! :)

    Escape tactics u can say bt still that's only their own thinking to please themselves maybe or they thy might still stupidly believe in some kinda magic I suppose...But still not some eternal truth. Or is their a even remote chance of happening things like that? U tell? :)

    Lets see! if my camera girl can talk too! not just click some non living pics!

    That might be cool enough by your this phoka world standards but still that actually don't entitle you to be called a lively person...or even a person at all..if real reasons behind things are taken into consideration not just some piggy banking on stupid assumptions which themselves can't hold their ground if someone scrutinize them lil deeper in real .

    To be called alive I think one must at least sometimes should be able to hold his/her ground or be able to afford it what it pray on or try cash on to live by. Or in other words for things where he/she should..no?

    But all these ar simple talks or things that one need not even know to learn specifically.

    But again thats what the globs magi is all abou .../stupid magic can we say it here? :)


    Then pls do try enlighten me with whatever you got or your whatever mind...I still dunno you right..so cant say for sure what it could be no?

    And sure...I wud be very much pleased to know that..maybe it gonna pacify my otherwise confusing mind...so will it put to rest globs difficulty regarding me..

    Or else I dunno abt middle east like they said once to me bt sure they themselves your whole globs gang really in some deep shit then..coming days...might they get to know later ...but stil cant say when. :)

    But one thing I know ...u see might happens to everybody...I mean thinkx the same way...but ...umm??...shit...lets forget it ..main phir bhool gaya yaar LOL

    And yeah substitute the improper words...my english still weak u know..sorry for any mistype on my part or anything stupid that u might think like..bt even in that case I wud say u better check up with me..before you reach definite conclusion abt that...cause it might be just my communication skills that are causing problems understanding what I wanted to say here than any other thing as such.

    They not that good u c...I am not very good with writing or language things..and now gobs grace not even speaking..use lots of stupid suffix prefix now a days ;) I admit :)

    Anyway time to go!

    cya girl some other time some other place! ;) Post of yours I mean? U dont mind me coming here right? Or u can just block ok? :)


  3. Abey badha lamha khara likh diya yaar maine! WOW! LOL
