Shaheed hospital, built in 1983, is a hospital by the workers for the workers 'Mehnatkashon ke swasthya ke liye, mehnatkashon ka apna karyakram'. It emerged out from the struggles of the mine workers of Dalli Rajhara led by legendary leader Shankar Guha Niyogi. This hospital formed the nucleus of the broader health movement catering to not just the mine workers but to other villages nearby. In this modest 106 bedded hospital, low cost of surgery, treatment and medicines attract about 150 patients everyday. About 180 deliveries are conducted every month. In an era of commercialisation and irrational drug use, this hospital has always believed in rational treatment.
The hospital has also given training on nursing to the local girls since 1993-94. A unique feature of this hospital is that the health workers in the mines and were trained by the doctors. These health workers voluntarily participated in hospital activities, like managing accounts and explaining patients about their illness in the local language in the simplest possible manner.
