All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Dear Maharaj,

Please accept my humble obeisances. Sorry for the delay in replying.

Hospital is going quite well. The details are as follows,

There are total 66 beds. On an average 40 patients get admitted per day or about 150 to 200 per month.
There are total 160 staff members and around 45 doctors.  Pharmacy, Pathology,
X-ray and Sonography all the departments are running nicely. Recently we have
re-opened ICU and NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Kidney dialysis
department is shortly going to reopen.

We have started a Community Health Center, which will enable the
underprivileged people to get checkup and treatment in a very nominal rate.
Under the community health services we have also started out reach programmes.

Under this programme we send our team of doctors, nurses and other staff to
different villages and conduct checkups to select patients. Later the selected
patients are brought to the hospital for treatment. Recently 22 patients were
selected for free cataract surgery in Bhaktivedanta Hospital from a nearby
village called Wada.

Last month two Eye checkup camps were conducted for the autorikshaw drivers.

Our team of Bhaktivedanta hospital also went for Tsunami relief work.

In February 2005 we conducted free Cataract camp for Brijwasis at Barsana. The
report of which have already been sent to you.

At present no Prabhupada’s disciple admitted. Many times devotees from Mumbai
congregation and Brahmacharis from temple come for treatment.

Last month one U.S devotee called H.G.Revatinandan Prabhu (disciple of
H.H.Bhakticharu Maharaj) passed away in the hospital. By the help of Mira road
congregation and hospital devotees we performed all the last rites as per the
Vaishnava style.
