The Tribhuvan-Chandra Military Hospital is an extension of the Birendra Army Hospital located at Chhauni.
Health services for soldiers and their dependants have also started from this building, rebuilt with funds made available through the Army Welfare Fund.
The hospital was constructed to commemorate Nepali soldiers who fought in the First World War in 1914
on behalf the British Empire. The hospital was constructed with the co-operation of the British government at that time.
The health services which were provided from this hospital were closed after the hospital building suffered damages during the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25, 2015.
The new hospital building will provide Emergency and OPD services to serving and retired Nepali Army soldiers and to their dependents.
On the occasion, CoAS Chhetri said a new three-storied well-facilitated hospital building has been constructed in its original architectural style. He described the building as a historical heritage. The Army chief said, “The historical importance of the building has been maintained.
The number of patients has been reduced at the Chhauni-based hospital and the beneficiaries can now avail of the health treatment services from the central part of the capital in an easy manner.”
He said the Army also has the plan to provide health services to the general public in future.
