Construction of a 10-bed local-level basic hospital at Nisikhola rural municipality in Baglung district has begun. Construction of the hospital has begun as per the federal government’s policy of constructing 15-bed, 10-bed and 5-bed hospital in all local levels of the country.
Chairperson of Nishikhola rural municipality-4, Taranath Poudel, said that the construction of a building of the hospital at Jhimpa of Nisikhola-4 has begun at a cost of Rs 82.4 million. An agreement has been signed to complete the construction of the building within two years.
