Christian Hospital Chhatarpur is a 150-bed, healthcare facility that provides compassionate care to the community around for more than 80 years. It was started in 1930 by missionaries from Friends Foreign Missionary Society, to serve the needy women and children in the backward Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh. The hospital mission is to transform the people of Bundelkhand through provision of good health care at affordable costs, community based development initiatives, and nursing training. The Hospital services include Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Neonatology, Dental, and Ophthalmology. The community health and development program includes MCH, CBR, Mainstreaming Disability, Palliative Care, PACS and Axshya Project.
A chapter in the history of Chhatarpur Christian Hospital came to a close with the leaving of their long-serving Senior Administrative Officer and Medical Superintendent, Dr. Christopher Lasrado who, having had to weather significant personal ill health needed to be available to his ageing parents for a time. We are fortunate to have Mr. Jone Wills, a seasoned administrator in EHA, take charge to aid the young medical team headed by Dr. Shalom Patole, a physician. There was much to be thankful for by way of infrastructure development, with Chhatarpur progressing in the construction of new mess facilities, hostel and staff accommodation, and the new maternal and neonatal facility that is nearing completion. This has been a year of completion for four of the projects such as health finance, comprehensive eye care (CBR), inclusive organic farming initiatives, and poor area civil society (PACS) project. The EMMS International funded MCH project continued its second year’s interventions with a goal to reduce maternal and infant mortality rates, and improve nutritional status of under 5 children in 3 blocks of Chhatarpur district.
