Over the past few months, renovations have been underway to transform Bayalpata’s former Labor and Delivery Room into a
fully-functional Isolation Room with an external entrance. This room provides a safe and comfortable environment for patients afflicted with communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis, who need to receive treatment separately from the standard Inpatient Department. The hospital’s new solar power system provides electricity to the room, enabling the use of all necessary medical equipment.
This renovation enables confinement of communicable pathogens, to ensure the safety of all Bayalpata patients, while still guaranteeing a comfortable healing environment for patients in isolation. As the hospital expansion progresses, we become equipped to better serve a variety of patient needs. Over the upcoming months, we look forward to providing updates on more improvements and renovations.
