Work begins on new Nursing College
We are delighted to share with you the news that the ground-breaking ceremony took place in February for the new Duncan Hospital College of Nursing. This huge project has been years in the planning and funding and we are so excited to share with you that it is finally underway.
It has long been the dream of the DHCT that a new college for nursing be built – the old building is no longer fit for purpose as rooms are small and damp, and are subject to frequent flooding during the wet season. This bold new building will be a beacon of hope and opportunity for the education of girls, not only from Bihar but Nepal and wider India as well. It will also increase the status of the Duncan as a training hospital, indeed it is hoped that many future generations of new nurses will benefit from the building that is emerging on the site.
Such a vast project could not have been made possible without the joint funding and collaboration of EMMS and The Duncan Hospital Charitable Trust. We are optimistic that The Nursing College should be completed and be ready to open in early 2024 after which work will begin on an accommodation block for 200 nursing students.
We look forward to keeping you up to date with this amazing project. Once again many thanks to all our DHCT supporters. Without your support and concern for those in need, none of this would be possible.
