"We treat - God cures"

Nepal is world renowned for its natural beauty and welcoming culture. With 8 of the 10 highest mountains in the world, including Mt. Everest, Nepal's landscape is truly inspirational. Nepal is also one of the poorest countries in the world, one third of the population lives below the poverty line. Obtaining healthcare is one of the major challenges people face in this developing country. This is where Scheer Memorial Hospital steps in to serve the people of Nepal. Though the cost of a doctor's consultation is only 33 cents, some patients cannot even afford that amount. However, no one is ever turned away for lack of money. People come from miles around, from the rural villages that have no roads, electricity or hope of providing medical treatment. Some even come carrying sick family members on their backs, because they know they will get the treatment they desperately need here, regardless of finances. Providing excellent healthcare to our community is our goal and passion. 

Scheer Memorial Hospital has long been a favorite for students and faculty that visit from Loma Linda. Situated several hours out of Kathmandu, it has a solid reputation among the local population. It has recently undergone another leadership change, with Dale Mole, a physician retired from the US military, now serving as CEO. AHI has been asked to become involved due to the personnel and financial concerns and the value in maintaining this institution in Nepal. We look forward to a viable relationship that can strengthen the operations and service opportunities of this facility.
