Namchi, 23 Jul:

A therapeutic ultrasound machine was handed over to the Physiotherapy Department of District Hospital here today in the presence of Senior Consultant Surgeon, Dr SM Pradhan.

The machine, purchased from the balance amount of Doctor's Day contributions pooled in by the doctors, was donated for the convenience of patients here who had to otherwise travel to Jorethang for therapeutic ultrasound sessions since the district hospital did not have such a machine.

The doctors at Namchi Hospital, it is informed, thought that donating such a machine would be of great help especially to patients from underprivileged backgrounds who will no longer have to make the journey to Jorethang for the procedure.

The machine cost Rs 25,300, and the credit, people here convey, goes to the doctors from South District.
