Free JKP Hospitals
There are many rural areas in India, where proper medical facilities are not available, and even if there are some health centres available, majority of the people cannot even afford the cost of basic treatment, medications and other services provided by such health centres. Hence, they are deprived of proper health care and suffer terribly.
Keeping in mind the lack of medical facilities available in such rural regions, Jagadguru Kripalu Parishat (JKP) financed and completed the construction of Jagadguru Kripalu Chikitsalaya, the first fully charitable hospital in Mangarh village (Pratapgarh District, Uttar Pradesh) and Jagadguru Kripalu Chikitsalaya in Barsana village (Mathura District, Uttar Pradesh).
The hospital in Mangarh was inaugurated on 5th November 2003, by the then UP Governor, Dr. Vishnukant Shastri. The hospital in Mangarh was extended to include a separate Eye Hospital, Jagadguru Kripalu Netra Chikitsalaya, for the benefit of the increasing number of patients with eyesight / vision problems, which was inaugurated by Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj on 26th July 2009. The hospital in Barsana was inaugurated on 14th January 2007. This hospital also has a separate Eye unit and a Naturopathy & Yoga unit.
Both JKP hospitals are run entirely on charities serving a rural population of 10,00,000 within its catchment radius of 80-100 kms, and these hospitals treat 600–700 patients daily. Both hospitals are a multi-facility hospital providing free and round the clock services of general physicians, gynaecologists, physiotherapists, orthopaedic and ophthalmic surgeons, as well as naturopathic and homoeopathic doctors. All medical personnel render their services free to the hospital.
These hospitals are equipped with state of the art imaging and laboratory equipments and an in-house 24-hour pathology laboratory. The expense incurred for In-Patient Services, Out-Patient Services, Medicines, X-Rays, ECG, Ultrasound, Pathology Investigations, Surgeries, etc are all borne by JKP, thus providing all medical services to its patients completely free of charge.
Proper shelters have also been constructed outside both the hospitals which act as a waiting hall for the poor patients who travel long distances. Due to the unprecedented rush and the constant effort made by JKC to maintain quality service, both the hospitals are forced to limit the number of patients they can examine per day. These hospitals have approximately 500-600 new patients on their waiting list at all times and are booked in advance for the next 4 to 5 days.
In addition to the medical services provided by JKC, the hospitals also conduct various medical camps throughout the year, including Opthalmic (Eye) Camps, Blood Donation Camps, Naturopathy Camps, etc, as well as organising health awareness programs in surrounding rural villages.
Under the guidance and encouragement of Shri Maharaj Ji, another massive charitable hospital is currently under construction in the holy land of Vrindavan (Mathura District, Uttar Pradesh). Like the other two JKP hospitals, the hospital in Vrindavan will also be providing all its medical services and facilities completely free of charge to all patients.
- To bring happiness and hope in patients by providing medical services and facilities free of cost.
