Namdroling Tsepal Tobkyed Golden Temple Hospital


Tsepal Tobkyed Hospital

Tsepal Tobkyed Hospital widely known as "TT Hospital," is the healthcare center of Namdroling Monastery established by the late His Holiness Penor Rinpoche in the year 2003. It is located across the street from Namdroling Monastery. His Holiness' hope in founding the hospital was that it might serve the health needs of the monks and nuns at Namdroling Monastery, and the people of Bylakuppe and the surrounding villages. The initial vision was that the hospital would have the potential to cater to a much bigger area, from Kushalnagar (4 km away, pop 35,000) to Periyapatna (18 km away). The total population living within a 50 km radius is about 160,000. He foresaw a large modern western hospital many facilities, which would also have a mission to cater to the poor.



At present, under the guidance of HE Gyangkhang Rinpoche and HE Muksang Kuchen Rinpoche, the present chiefs of Namdroling Monastery, the teamwork of Dr. Ananthu Srinivas, the Chief of Medical Services and the Administrators of TT hospital (Lopon Sonam Dendup and Lopon Sonam Tsewang), and with the clinical support from Columbia Asia Hospital, Bangalore, TT hospital will be developed soon with the basic and advanced facilities so that it can provide quality healthcare as dreamed by our late guru His Holiness Penor Rinpoche.

On 12th March 2010, the hospital board was formed under the Penor Rinpoche Charity Foundation, a registered trust under the Karnataka State Government. The board consists of Chairman (HE Gyangkhang Tulku Rinpoche), Co-Chairman (HE Muksang Kuchen Rinpoche), Vice-Chairman (Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso), Chief Finance Officer (Acharya Dakpa Lama), Chief Administrative Officer (Lopon Sonam Dendup) and Chief Business Development Officer (Lopon Sonam Tsewang). The board was formed in order to get the hospital registered under the state government of Karnataka. The following documents and licenses were received after approaching the concerned offices.

  • Hospital Registration Certificate
  • Pharmacy License both Narcotic and Non-Narcotic
  • Trade License
  • License from the Pollution Control Board

Even though Namdroling has obtained all the important documents needed to run a private hospital with 40 beds, still the monastery has not been able to make available all the facilities which are needed to accomplish its objective.



With the help of sponsors, so far the monastery has been able to renovate the hospital and as a result, the hospital now looks fresh and new. In addition, the monastery has also fully computerized the consultation room, pharmacy, accounts section, main office and laboratory making it easier to work and to maintain transparency. Standard quality beds for inpatients were purchased and installation of one RO (Reverse Osmosis) Plant for dialysis unit was also done.

Support

At the present the urgent needs are as follows:

First Stage

  • To fully equip the casualty/emergency department
  • To upgrade the clinical laboratory
  • To purchase a new X-ray as the old one is not operational

Second Stage

  • To purchase 2 dialysis machines
  • To set up the Operation Theatre for minor procedures
  • Health insurance for all the monks and nuns

Third Stage

  • Setting up of Labor Room

The individual and total cost of the first and second stage of development as well as the monthly operating cost of the hospital can be found in this project cost document.

Without the support of the donors, our vision will not be accomplished. Therefore, we request all the generous sponsors, who are interested to contribute the enclosed list of project either fully or partially so that we can make this dream come true. We assure all the sponsors that their contributions will be used wisely so that they do not go to waste.

All the students and sponsors of Palyul tradition as well our dharma friends and well wishers worldwide who want to contribute to this just cause are requested to contact the below mentioned address for details.
