Sikkim Achieves A Milestone With The Huge, 10-Storeyed Hospital!
The Northeastern states in India has carved out a niche as being home to some of the most popular tourist destinations in the country that will promise you of a breathtaking view of the stunning landscape, mighty mountains, roaring waterfalls and mysterious caves. Sikkim has been rapidly developing in all aspects and it has recently won the tag of being the first ‘completely’ organic state in the entire world! Now, it has taken a bold step in favour of top-notch healthcare services with the grand inauguration of the new Sir Thutob Namgyal Memorial Multi-Speciality Hospital (STNM) in Sochaygang, which is conveniently located at a meagre distance of three kilometres from Gangtok.

Much to the appreciation of the common people, the awe-inspiring 10-storeyed government hospital is being regarded as the second biggest hospital in India right after the renowned All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. The sprawling hospital had commenced its operations during the month of February 2019 with 47 regular doctors and 261 trained nurses and is now well-equipped with advanced MRI, Doppler fetal monitor, Orthopantomogram machine, CT scanners, and more. Moreover, all the residents of Sikkim will be entitled to receive free treatment at the hospital and will no longer find the need to travel to the prominent metropolitan cities for first-class services.
