About ST. JOSEPH HOSPITAL
St. Joseph’s charitable society established the hospital at Kakkinje in 1978 by CMI Fathers with the aim of uplifting the poor society and during that time we provided healthcare services to several surrounding villages.
To achieve this goal we did serve in the areas of health, education, social upliftment, women empowerment, national integrity to this region. In the view of extending our services to general public with allopathic treatment we have restructured the hospital and started again.
St. Joseph Hospital
Expenditure on health is also substantive for rural households in the district. A fairly high 14 per cent of the total household expenditure is incurred on the treatment of household members. This expenditure is comparatively much higher among rural households. The burden of expenditure on health can partly be eased for the households, by making better provision of basic health facilities, and thus, reduce dependence of households on private services”. This intervention will also be an attempt to satisfy the concern over spending on health care in villages of Belthangady D.K district.
The hospital seeks to provide basic health facilities such as, General Medicine, Physiotherapy & Orthopaedics, Common Laboratory Tests, Pain Management, and emergency support services.
The hospital presently caters to the needs of the patients with 3 Out-Patient Consultation Rooms, 1 Operation Theatre, 1 Laboratory, 1 Radiology, 1 Chemists Shop and 72 In-Patient Beds. This general hospital project is operating effectively and expected to increase the capacity to 60 beds with many more health services. There is a need for a modern hospital providing affordable treatment to bridge the demand gap that is currently not addressed by the existing government, private and social sector hospital.
to avail quality health services at affordable cost.
