Now it is developed as an academic center with the name of PAHS (Pokhara Academy of Health and Sciences) on 2072.
We mainly provide emergency, outdoor, indoor and diagnostic services. Besides these we also have some special services such as safe motherhood program, HIV/ART , PMTUT , VCT , MMT , NRH , SBA , CAC , PAC and many more.
Beside some budgets provided from MOH we also generate additional budget from local bodies and we manage almost 50 % of staff from own income source.
