The In-Patients Department (IPD) serves approximately 1,800 patients per year. This includes displaced persons from the nearby Refugee Camp who are referred to the hospital by the American Refugee Committee for serious medical problems and surgery when they need care that cannot be provided in the refugee camp hospital.  While the hospital is registered as a 25 bed hospital, the IPD has 45 beds and is capable of accommodating up to 60 patients.

IPD work includes:

  • A busy surgical unit which performs 400 procedures a year. Surgical work includes orthopaedics, urology, obstetrics and gynaecology, plastics, ear, nose and throat, and trauma including landmine and gunshots injuries. General anaesthetics can be administered when volunteer anaesthetists visit the hospital.
  • A delivery room where more than 100 babies are delivered each year.
