History of Patan Hospital
The United Mission to Nepal (UMN), an international Christian organization, founded Shanta Bhawan Hospital almost 50 years ago as a pioneering autonomous hospital to serve the underprivileged people of Nepal. In 1982, the hospital merged with Lalitpur Hospital to form Patan Hospital, still under the management of UMN. UMN recently decided to relinquish its role. This decision allowed Patan Hospital to become a self-sufficient institution managed by its Nepali staff, and to continue its dedication to quality compassionate care for the disadvantaged. Now, by becoming the teaching hospital of PAHS, Patan Hospital will continue to grow and proceed into the future.
