Other Details
Notes: Christian Fellowship Hospital - Oddanchatram A secondary hospital located the state of Tamil Nadu in South India. Has all the basic infrastructure and depts - O&G, ortho, general surgery, paeds, internal medicine, high dependency, anaesthesia, HIV clinics. Fantastic turnover of patients- sees up to 1000 patients per day in her OPD! Famous for her faith- slogan of "We treat, God heals" is displayed boldly on top of the main building, and the chapel services every monring bonds all the staff at the spiritual and relational level. Doctors speak in English, so communication with the staff is usually not a problem The Christian Fellowship Hospital (CFH) was founded in the 1950s in Oddanchatram, a small village in a drought stricken rural area of south India. At that time, the area had no electricity, water supply, telephone, or school. The nearest doctor was 57km away. The founder of the hospital is Dr Tharien, who still operates at the hospital at the age of 82. Today, CFH has grown to a size of 250 beds with 42 doctors, and - due to the almost total absence of primary care services 1,000 outpatient consultations take place each day. Its activities have spread to health education programmes, childrens homes, rehabilitation centres for people with leprosy and, more recently, to the opening of a hospice for people with HIV. Despite its rural location, the hospitals reputation has grown to the point that junior doctors now choose to travel across the country to train there. Throughout India, patients are charged for treatment, but low fees and an intolerance of corruption have added to the success of CFH. Dr Tharien, meanwhile, has acquired something of an international profile, leading the international peace delegation to the UN, advising the WHO on medical ethics. Do read : for a detailed sharing from a student who's been there before. We've had many of our students/contacts gone there before, and not a few of us from the Linking Hands team have been there. Highly recommended!
