Having attained the status of premier institution
for the treatment of the leprosy affected, SHLC is in the process of extending
its services to other underprivileged-suffering brethren. Since June,
1999, SHLC has started Out-Patient clinic services to the patients suffering
from diseases other than leprosy also, with the available infrastructure
and personnel. Experts from Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research
Institute (Deemed University) are visiting and rendering valuable services.
In the years to come SHLC has plans to develop
into a modern hospital with facilities to treat patients suffering from
various ailments. At present buildings are under construction to
house wards so that the bed strength could be increased sufficiently.
New operation theatre complex has also been proposed with facilities to
conduct all major surgeries including cardiac and neuro-surgeries
Efforts are being taken to have casualty services
with round the clock care, aided with Emergency Services, Intensive Care
Consultants in various specialities will be made
available so that patients can avail overall care under one roof.
Various reputed medical institutions have come
forward to help in achieving this goal in the nearest future. With
the encouragement and help from the benefactors, well wishers and friends,
SHLC hopes to continue its services to all those in need in future.
