About Ishan Children & Woman's Hospital Pvt.Ltd
In 2052(B.S.), Dr. Narayan Bahadur Thapa, along with a few colleagues( Dr. Ananta Dutta Shrestha, Dr. Dhana Raj Aryal, Dr. Jyoti Ratna Dhakwa and Krihsna Prasad Devkota) felt that there was a need for a children’s hospital in the private sector as the government facilities available then were not coping with the enormous patient load. It was realized that patients should get urgent care when they needed it and not when a bed became available.With this idea a humble beginning was made to start a 15 bedded Ishan Children’s Nursing Home (name was changed when the hospital expanded to 25 beds in 2054).
This hospital was first of its kind the paediatric field and started with the motto of providing 12 hour outdoor and 24 hour emergency and indoor facility. In the intervening years hospital have increased the bed capacity to 25 and have moved to the present site at Basundhara Chowk and are in the process of increasing the capacity to 55 beds.
The guiding principal of this hospital from the very beginning was to provide affordable quality care with the best available equipment level without becoming a commercial venture. From ordinary but adequate start the hospital have gradually built to provide the best operative unit possible and are equipping an ICU of highest quality. The modus operandi of hospital has always been a gradual increment with our own resources without big money involvement.
