Kathmandu Model Hospital (KMH) was founded in 1993 as an 18 bed community referral hospital. The capacity expanded to 50 beds in 1995 and additional services were added at this time. Since 2003, KMH has been a tertiary care hospital with 100 beds. Despite limited resources, KMH attempts to make state-of-the art technology available to its clients.
KMH envisions health services not only in a biomedical context but also in a social context. In accordance with the beliefs of phect-NEPAL, KMH firmly believes that health services should empower the sick to fight all types of suffering. The hospital follows the principles that health services:
Recognizing that HEALTH is the individual's ability to achieve, enjoy and maintain a harmonic relationship with his/her being and nature at large, the MISSION of phect-NEPAL is to build a society with healthy people. The direction of phect-NEPAL is guided by the philosophy of Empowerment of people through health action, and therefore phect-NEPAL aims to create a model of sustainable health care system based on principles of equity, social justice, people's participation and self reliance. Thus, having evolved over more than two decades, phect-NEPAL is taking the shape of a movement rather than a mere organization. .
Despite the progress in development made in Nepal in recent decades, life remains well below a satisfactory level for the majority of Nepalese people. Arguably, mismanagement and irrational distribution of resources has grossly marginalized most of the population, reducing the capacity for average individuals to meet their basic needs. With the introduction of parliamentary democracy to Nepal in 1990, there were rising expectations that the quality of life and general health would be improved. A clear vision of development would have enabled the government to initiate planning and action to move in this direction, however the government was not adequately prepared. Therefore there was a need for non-governmental organizations to step in to act as a partner of national development. For this reason, phect-NEPAL came into existence in 1991.
The whole campus is Wi-Fi enabled, with the vision of the Hospital becoming the first truly paper-less healthcare facility in the country.
