Manipur's 'oldest' Hospital returns to its finest days
Source: Chronicle News Service

Kangpokpi, September 29 2023: Kangpokpi Christian Hospital (KCH), undoubtedly Manipur's oldest hospital and among the first few hospitals in the entire North East has returned to its finest days amidst the wide-scale violence in the state.

The hospital, established in 1920 by Dr GG Crozier and his better half, was the finest hospital till the 1990s with patients from across the state and the NE region seeking treatment here.

However, with the establishment of better hospitals in the state, KCH had reached almost a.defunct state with a lack of top-notch infrastructures and equipment.

The ethnic conflict since May 3 in Manipur turned into a blessing in disguise for the hospital as it is witnessing similar days during its finest time with more than 200 outpatients visiting daily in addition to over 50/60 in-patients.

Considering the problems owing to the unavailability of proper medical facilities and the low intake capacity of in-patients due to lack of sufficient rooms and beds, the Kuki Students' Organisation (KSO)-General Headquarters has constructed the first floor of the hospital to accommodate more in-patients.

Speaking to media persons, KSO-GHW information & publicity secretary Mimin Haokip informed that construction of the first-floor building began on June 14 and was completed on September 20 while the inauguration, dedication, and handing over to the hospital authority was done on Friday.

He informed that the work had been done in collaboration with the International Love Ministry under the leadership of reverend Dr Holkhosei Touthang and Chingboi Touthang.

KCH Administration Committee chairman reverend V Sitlhou inaugurated and dedicated the first-floor building in the presence of prominent leaders from various communities and civil society organisations.

He also inaugurated and dedicated the newly constructed KCH Canteen for the in-patient parties also built by KSO-GHQ in collaboration with the International Love Ministry.

The KSO-GHQ believes that the hospital would serve the needs of the people in a better way and called for sincere collective efforts for the upgrade of the hospital and its infrastructure and equipment to serve humanity, Sitlhou mentioned.

On the other hand, KCH chief administrative officer Paominthang Hmar expressed his gratitude, especially to the KSO-GHQ and all contributors for their tireless efforts for the hospital while adding that the founder of the hospital Dr and Mrs Crozier s dream has been revived and they would be very happy.

He also encouraged all like-minded people to come forward for the betterment of the hospital as it is a non-profit, charitable, and self-supported hospital established to serve humanity.
