About us

The Hospital and Rehabilitation Center for Disabled Children (HRDC) is a non-profit hospital, and the largest pediatric orthopedic hospital and rehabilitation center in Nepal. Underprivileged children with physical disabilities are our target population, and through our medical and social rehabilitation program, we address the full spectrum of the child's medical, therapeutic and social needs. Our team of dedicated doctors and surgeons, led by Dr. Banskota, perform an average of over 1,500 surgeries each year. More than 68,000 children have been mended so far at HRDC.

The medical team at HRDC comprises ten orthopedic surgeons, two anesthetic consultants, four anesthetic nurses, two plastic surgeons, three house officers and thirty other members in different capacities. Currently, HRDC has 74 beds including three intensive care beds for medical and rehabilitation interventions. Our surgeons are equipped with five highly advanced operating rooms, and have the capacity to treat up to 300 patients per month. The hospital plans to increase the number of beds, provided resources are available. In addition, HRDC runs five satellite clinics in Nepalgunj, Baglung, Chitwan, Lahaan and Ithari. These clinics function as focal points for HRDC’s field activities, coordinating mobile clinics, conducting home visits and maintaining networks with health stakeholders in the region. Read more...

At HRDC and in the field, our staff members provide compassionate care with the highest quality of surgical and rehabilitation services. In addition, considerable effort is spent on educating and teaching at-home care givers simple rehabilitation methods that can be practiced at home, and nutritional changes that can be adopted in their communities to avoid preventable disabilities.

Despite the challenges of a ten year long civil war, the country’s transition to democracy, and the devastating earthquake in April 2015, HRDC, with founder Dr. Ashok Kumar Banskota in the lead, has provided a safe and friendly place for children with disabilities since 1985.
