aspire to take science to society

Saradish Roy Smriti Swasthya Bitan

Liver Foundation, West Bengal has built a rural health care research and intervention centre, which serves as the organization's headquarter, at Nagari village of Birbhum District in West Bengal. Keeping in mind the rural focus of the organization, it was a conscious decision to locate the headquarter in a rural area. The centre has been named Saradish Roy Smriti Swasthya Bitan, after a noted physician of the people and social activist, who hailed from the village Nagari in Birbhum. The foundation stone was laid by the Additional Director General, Indian Council of Medical Research - Dr. Sujit K Bhattacharya on 14th January, 2009. For the construction of this building Liver Foundation, West Bengal has received funds from the MPLADS scheme of Mr. Shyamal Chakraborty, Hon'ble MP (Rajya Sabha) as well as from the Paschimanchal Unnayan Affairs Department, Government of West Bengal. This Institute has been inaugurated by Professor Ajoy Ray, Hon'ble Vice Chancellor of Bengal Engineering & Science University on 14th January 2011. Outdoor facilities in General Medicine, Physiotherapy, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Gynecology, Dentistry and Gastroenterology for the rural people of the surrounding localilities are being organized here. We have started pharmacy, pathological laboratory (medium II), minor OT services and also a 6-bedded daycare facility at this center.
