In a momentous occasion, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and H.E.

This state-of-the-art hospital, constructed with the assistance of the Government of India, marks a significant milestone in the India-Bhutan partnership in healthcare.

The Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Wangchuck Mother and Child Hospital, a 150-bedded facility, is the result of a collaborative effort between the two nations.

The newly inaugurated hospital is poised to elevate the quality of mother and child health services in Bhutan significantly. Equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for Pediatrics, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Anesthesiology, Operation Theatre, Neonatal Intensive Care, and Pediatric Intensive Care, the hospital is well-prepared to address a wide range of healthcare needs for mothers and children.

The Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Wangchuck Mother and Child Hospital is not just a healthcare facility but also a symbol of the enduring partnership and friendship between India and Bhutan. This collaborative effort underscores the commitment of both nations to improving healthcare infrastructure and services for the well-being of their citizens.

The inauguration of this hospital stands as a shining example of successful bilateral cooperation and highlights the shared vision of India and Bhutan towards advancing healthcare and promoting a healthier future for all.
