A municipal hospital has come into operation in Balewa, which is connected to Kushma Bazaar, the district headquarters. 

The hospital has been established with the objective of providing quality health services to the citizens of three wards of Baglung Municipality.

The municipal hospital has been set up by upgrading the health post at Paiupata in Balewa. Mayor Janak Raj Poudel inaugurated the hospital on Friday. The hospital has been operated in the old structure immediately. “We will construct a new building with facilities within a year. We also plan to add manpower,” Poudel said. Nine ropanis of land have been provided for the construction of the hospital with the help of locals. A budget of Rs. 180 million has been allocated for the construction of the new building.

A municipal hospital has been set up in Paiupata under the policy of ‘one local level, one hospital’. The municipality has stated that the hospital will have manpower of 27 people including three doctors. Currently, there are eight employees including senior AHW, health assistant, ANMI, and office support. Narayan Sharma Poudel, Ward Chairman of Paiunpata, informed that about 27,000 citizens of Paiunpata, Narayansthan, and Amalachaur of Baglung Municipality will benefit from the operation of the hospital.

“Along with the government assistance, assistance is also being collected from the locals,” he said. Poudel says that even those living abroad for employment have started helping in the construction of the hospital. Due to the lack of a reliable hospital, people have to go to Baglung, Kushma, Pokhara, and other places.
