Bhaktapur, Nov. 25: Nepal-Korea Friendship Municipality Hospital, run by Madhyapur Thimi Municipality, has brought the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for children into operation.

“The hospital has been providing easy and convenient treatment services not only to the residents of the Municipality but also to patients from across the country,” he said.
The ICU for children started seeing the vulnerability among children during the COVID-19 pandemic and both COVID-19 infected and non-infected children will receive affordable treatment, Mayor Shrestha said.
He said the hospital had become the second government-run hospital in the country to conduct PCR testing after Teku Hospital and the hospital has now brought into operation three PCR machines.

He said that since the establishment of the Oxygen Plant, ICU and ventilator have been expanded and now a separate ICU with ventilators for children has been brought into operation, he said.
The hospital has also started dialysis services for kidney patients. He said that they are currently treating patients daily with two machines while four more dialysis machines have just arrived with the help of the Rotary Club.
The hospital is currently operating a 25-bed HDU and a 10-bed ICU with a ventilator for patients over 17 years of age.
According to Mayor Shrestha, the hospital, which has a total of 102 beds, is also expanding various services in the hospital and preparing to run a nursing college.
