The hospital was started in 1928 as a dispensary to serve the people of Mahasamund district of Chhattisgarh. Today the 50 beds hospital provides health care services to women & Children, Ophthalmic, medicine and surgery, and community health services to a population of nearly 200,000 people scattered over 300 villages.
REPORT 2015 - 16
Sewa Bhawan Hospital Jagdeeshpur saw a change in direction a couple of years ago with Dr Vinod Joshua being placed there for resurrecting the ophthalmic services. The establishment of these services has seen slow growth with many factors playing a role for patients to access this place. Being a very remote location with very few facilities for health care, Jagdeeshpur has the potential to grow into a powerful place for the Gospel and advocacy and rights of the people. The year 15-16 saw a slowdown in the growth of the hospital with decreasing patient numbers. We praise God that the eye services have been slowly gaining ground.
