Nepal Red Cross Society has been managing eye care services as a key component of health service in Karnali province (Former Mid-West Region) since 1990s through eye care centers (Surkhet, Dailekh, Jajarkot and Bardia) and outreach program with the support of Swiss Red Cross. In Initial stage, Surkhet eye hospital was as a primary eye care centre, established in 2046 at Birendranagar, Surkhet. Considering the increased demand for clinical and surgical services in the regional hub at Surkhet, the CECC upgraded as a surgical centre in 2009 and continued their surgical service up to 2014 by visiting Ophthalmologist once a month. The surgical centre was again upgraded as a Nepal Red Cross Society Surkhet Eye Hospital (NRCS SEH) completing the construction of hospital building with the financial support of Swiss Red Cross, Lindenhof foundation and Foundation Vision for All.  The Foundation Vision for all was contributed CHF 98,000.00 for hospital building construction. The hospital service was functional from Jan 2015 by regular Ophthalmologists.  

Message From Chairman

Ram Lal Acharya

Along with its establishment in Birendranagar, Surkhet in 2046 BS having the apparent purpose of reducing blindness among the people of different districts of Bheri and Karnali at the Mid-Western Region or the present Karnali Province with the economic and technical support of Swiss Red Cross and run by Nepal Red Cross, Eye Care Center has been providing eye care services with community outreach to restoring the sight in different places. Since 1 January, 2015 it has further extended its services from the new building built with the financial support of Swiss Red Cross, Foundation Vision for All and Lindenhof Foundation, and has been regularly providing comprehensive services by two Ophthalmologist. The hospital is further attempting to extend its quality services in a more systematic and accessible manner. In this context, I would like to give thanks to all the persons, donors, political personalities, social workers, organizations, business entrepreneurs, journalists as well as service takers who have contributed in upgrading this hospital's services with appropriate suggestions, true guidance and economic as well as technical support. I hope we will get continuous support, suggestions and guidance in the days to come too.
