Welcome to our Charitable Dispensary, a beacon of compassionate healthcare that has been serving the community since 1940. Our journey began with a humble Homoeopathic dispensary located below the Temple premises, and over the years, we have evolved to meet the growing needs of the community.
A Legacy of Caring
In 1952, we proudly opened the doors of our present Charitable Dispensary building on Laitumkhrah main road. The inauguration was graced by distinguished personalities, including Sri Jairamdas Daulatram, the then Governor of Assam, Chief Minister B.R. Medhi, Swami Vireswaranandaji, and Gambhiranandaji. Since then, we have received appreciation for our sincere service from countless beneficiaries and the local public.
Committed to Growth
As our community's healthcare needs expanded, we recognized the necessity for a modern, well-equipped facility. In 2003, we laid the foundation stone for a new 3-storied RCC building, which was inaugurated in 2007 by the revered Swami Smarananandaji Maharaj, the then General Secretary of Ramakrishna Math & Mission.
Comprehensive Healthcare Services
Today, our Charitable Dispensary stands as a symbol of comprehensive healthcare. We offer a wide array of services, including pathological laboratory, X-Ray unit, and separate departments for Allopathic and Homeopathic treatments. Additionally, we have dedicated departments for Medicine, Eye, Dental, Paediatric, Physiotherapy, ENT, Ultrasound, and ECG, as well as an Ayurveda department.
Serving the Community - A Way of Life
At our dispensary, we firmly believe in the power of selfless service. We provide free medicines and treat approximately 90,000 patients annually. But our commitment goes beyond the clinic walls. Through our Mobile Medical Unit, we extend our healing touch to another 30,000-35,000 patients in remote villages.
