Introduction of LMC
The establishment and beginning of this college at Tansen, where people have firm determination to develop this beautiful town on the basis of three mottos, education, health and tourism has enhanced their inspiration, eagerness and happiness . Realizing the need of a medical college in the western hilly region the concept of Lumbini Medical College &Teaching Hospital Pvt. Ltd. emerged and immediately a 100 beded hospital was established in the year 2063 B.S. with permission from Ministry of Health and Population.
Although health is a major responsibility of the government, considering the multitude problems faced by the country, it is impractical to hope and demand for the resolution of every problem from the government. Hence, this large project was implemented in a step wise process by mobilizing local regional Nepalese entrepreneurs.
This year, it has been upgraded to a 600 beded hospital with expansion of various services and facilities like CT scan, Fluoroscopy, Laparoscopy and minimal invasive surgery, Uretero – renoscopy (URS) and ICPL, highly equipped operation theaters, sub – speciality services etc.
Before affiliation to Kathmandu University we had an opportunity to grandly organize the VI th National Surgical Conference of the Society of Surgeon of Nepal on 22nd -23rd December, 2007. We have also been granted the permission to run the Nursing Program which has further expanded our scope for producing capable manpower.
Our vigorous attempts have successfully been paid on receiving an affiliation from the renowned Kathmandu University of Nepal on 16th Nov, 2008. Our institution is also in the process being enlisted in the World Dictionary of Medical School by WHO.
In this advanced era of Medical Science we have given ample emphasis on research in various areas requiring great attention. Therefore we focus on carrying out researches in existing and emerging health problems that threaten the local communities.
