Ambassador of Japan to Nepal Masamichi Saigo handed over a mobile clinic to Siraha-based Phul Kumari Mahato Memorial Hospital at a function organised at Nepal Mediciti Hospital here today.
The mobile clinic is a specialised car manufactured by Toy Factory and comes with basic medical equipment for diagnosis and treatment of patients.
According to Bijay Rimal, general manager at Nepal Mediciti Hospital, the hospital will provide free health services in the mobile clinic. He informed that one consultant doctor and a paramedic will be in the car to provide treatment to patients.
“The mobile clinic also has an ICU with ventilator. Hence, treatment can also be provided in emergency cases, such as road accidents,” said Rimal. The mobile clinic can be used for transporting patients.
