Asha Kiran Hospital
Started in a rented mud hut in 1991, the Asha Kiran Hospital was established primarily to offer medical care to the tribal people of Lamtaput block. Today, we are a multi specialty hospital offering numerous services to Lamtaput block as well as to the surrounding areas. Besides the government district hospital in Koraput, we are the only secondary level hospital for nearly 200 kms around. Thus we play an important role in the health scenario of Koraput district which happens to be one of the three most backward districts of Orissa (part of the KBK block).
Asha Kiran Hospital is a 45 bedded medical facility manned by staffs who feel called to spread the love of Christ through their work among the poorest of the poor in India. We are dedicated to providing low cost, ethical health care in an atmosphere of caring and commitment that reflects our Christian identity.

Other facilities for the benefit of our patients are blood bank services, ultrasound, X-ray, laboratory and patient counseling.In order to try and benefit our poor patients we also have set up a referral system for tertiary clinical, radiological and laboratory services.
Although our hospital consists mainly of general wards we keep a few special rooms to try and subsidize our poor patients.Our policy is never to turn anyone away due to lack of finances although patients are encouraged to pay as much as they can afford to prevent dependence.
The hospital is Janana Sankhya Yojana approved and a RNTCP approved TB center.We have also recently become an accredited center for a government health insurance for below poverty line patients (RSBY scheme).
