Each year 39 million people are pushed into poverty because of indebtedness to cover healthcare costs. Innovations could be a way out to get quality care at a cost that the nation can afford. It is said that 'Innovate or Die'. The Central and State Government have set up many health schemes and Primary Health Centres (PHC)'s in the remote villages. These are run by the staff with minimum training and qualification. Hence they can attend only to the minimum health needs of the common people. This gives urgency to train more personals.

Nursing education:


Kunkuri Hospital runs both GNM and ANM Nursing Schools. Majority of the students are from SC/ST/OBC background. With the efforts of our sisters these students avail scholarship from the government for their entire studies. There are 14 Teaching & 4 Non Teaching staff.

Hospital facilities:


Holy Cross Hospital in Kunkuri caters all possible health care round the clock. The patients who avail the services belong to very weaker section of the society. For most of the patients, our hospitals are the last resort and they come in a very critical condition. Hospital is empaneled for giving treatment under Rashtriya Swasthya Bhima Yogena for APL and BPL families. There are also many other programes in which these hospitals are collaborating with government.

The Holy Cross Hospital at Chainpur is rendering services mainly through the Mobile health programe supported by Central Government. Sisters go to villages for 25 days in a month to treate an average of 60 patients per day.

Through RAHA, much work is being done for preventive, promotive and curative care in the villages and through School Health Programe, the children are taught the remedies for good health. There are many programes conducted in the villages to promote health and to prevent sicknesses mainly Malaria. The use of herbal medicine is very much appreciated.

With the help of Sight savers, an Eye project is initiated through RAHA and Holy Cross Hospital, Kunkuri. Many persons with catracts were treated. The surgery is done with minimum cost. Hence many poor villlagers benefit from this program.

A Mobile Helath programe with the help of Central Government was initiated in Chainpur. It was started in 2009 and it covers about 25 - 30 villages. 25 days in a month, the sisters are in the villages with Mobile Van to cater health facilities and they have an average of 125-150 patients per day.
