Charushila Manmathanath Dey Memorial Unit at Jadurberia
A new unit of Howrah Lions Hospital, situated at Jadurberia, P.S. Uluberia, District- Howrah, about 35 KM away from the existing hospital, is also in the industrial town of Howrah. This unit can be reached by a 30 minutes drive from the existing hospital through Kona Expressway – Bombay Road (N. H.- 6) a 6 lanes motorable road and alternatively from Howrah station by S. E. Railway stoppage at Uluberia Station and then 10 minutes walking distance.
This hospital was established by one Sri Barid Baran Dey, Author & Secretary, of Charushila Manmathanath Dey Memorial Charitable Trust, with the object of providing medical facilities to the poor & needy people of the area. In order to implement the above objective the said Sri Barid Baran Dey started constructing the hospital building on 14 Cottah of land with the fund accumulated by him during his life time. This hospital building was in a semi- constructed position with a total floor area of 7,200 sq. ft. divided in ground plus 1st Floor being 3,600 Sq. ft. each floor.
The said Sri Barid Baran Dey, lost his both the eyes due to glaucoma. Hence he could not complete the construction of hospital building and run the same.
As such, he started looking for a NGO, who can run the said hospital. Relying on the fact that Lions Club of Howrah is doing a noble cause of restoration of sight of the people with preventable blindness and in appreciation of their effort to fulfill his own objective, the said Mr. Dey approached Howrah Lions Hospital, to permanently take over the present infrastructure including the Hospital building with the land on as is where is basis for its proper and full utilization.
The management of Howrah Lions Hospital after considering the proposal of the said Mr. Dey agreed to take over the responsibility of the said semi- constructed Hospital building to expand its activities. And finally by a DEED OF GIFT dated 8th June, 2005, the trustees of Charushila Manmathanath Dey Memorial Charitable Trust, gifted and handed over possession of the said semi- constructed Hospital building in favour of Howrah Lions Hospital, which has now been renamed as ‘HOWRAH LIONS HOSPITAL- Charushila Manmathanath Dey Memorial Unit’ to commemoratethe  wishes of donor. .
After taking over the charge of this semi- finished hospital under its management, the managing committee of Lions Club of Howrah chalked out a well thought plan to make this unit a satellite centre of their existing hospital by converting this semi-finished building in a full fledged EYE HOSPITAL starting with 40 beds to cater the need of local population as well as adjoining district of Midnapore, where a large numbers of poor patient cannot be treated in lack of eye care facilities.
The club on a war footing started the work of completion of the hospital building and installation of equipments and furnishing of indoor wards to cater the need of local population as well as for taking off big load from the main hospital enabling them to concentrate on other geographical areas. The surgeons and medical team was sent from the main hospital. The hospital has started regular OPD and cataract operation and surgeries at this new unit. Complicated cases, if any, are referred to the main hospital.
Lions Clubs International Foundation has also provided necessary funds under its Sight First program for purchase of necessary equipments and accessories as well as furnishing of patient block.
