About us

Tamakoshi Sewa Samiti (TSS) is the founding organization of Tamakoshi Co-operative Hospital. In 1986 (32 years ago), TSS established a tiny clinic in Manthali village and made provision of one clinic assistant trained just for 3 months. Fewer medicines (especially for fever and wounded dressing) were available in the clinic. During that time, no any health institution (neither private nor government) was existed in Manthali. There was one government health post in Ramechhap village (old district headquarters), which is 15 kms. away from Manthali and the only means of transportation was normal walking for 4 hours. In such situation, TSS clinic was considered to be very significant despite small in size, as no alternative health center was existed in Manthali. At present, there is a 15-bed district hospital in Ramechhap village and a 3-bed primary health center in Manthali, both run by the government. The district headquarters was moved down to Manthali village from Ramechhap village in 1989.

TSS gradually expanded the level of health services in the clinic and also made provision of more health workers. In 2000, the small clinic converted into a 10-bed hospital with the provision of one MBBS medical doctor and the hospital was fully operated under TSS health program. Eventually in 7th June 2007, the hospital was formally registered in the name of "Tamakoshi Co-operative Hospital" as a social health institution. It has also obtained an approval from Central Development Regional Directorate, Ministry of Health & Population.  Manthali Saving & Credit Co-operative Society Ltd. (which was also promoted by TSS in 1998) was also involved in the establishment of the Tamakoshi Co-operative Hospital. Thus, there is close relationship between the hospital, TSS and Manthali Co-operatives in day-to-day functioning of the hospital. This hospital is first community based co-operative hospital in Ramechhap district and perhaps in the entire country. The hospital has been now upgraded into 25-bed hospital since April 2017.
