In 1987, a small health clinic was established and now the clinic has evolved into a proper hospital. This was made possible through contributions from foreign sponsors and with efforts of all the staff members. Now, the hospital can provide both the traditional and modern allopathic form of treatment; the traditional medicine is managed through collaboration with the Mentse-Khang Institute based in Dharamsala; the allopathic clinic is managed by the board of members appointed by the monastery for a term of 3 years. The hospital has been made possible through the financial support from the following benevolent sponsors:

1)  Through Kangyur Rinpoche Charitable Trust, most respectable Kangyur Rinpoche Sangay Bhutia has been providing financial assistance to provide free medicines and X-ray check ups for the needy ones, as well as other forms of treatment to many patients since 2006.

2)  The students of late H.E. Gyalrong Khensur Rinpoche Ngawang Theckchok, & late H. E Khejok Rinpoche have been providing support for long

3)  H.E. Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jamyang and his students Dr. Minh have been sponsoring the salary for the dentist

4)  H.E. Tsawa Woser Rinpoche and his students sponsored the solar power and equipment for physiotherapy

5)  Dr. Daniel and Dr. Kris (USA) have been serving here as volunteers since 2002

At our H. Poitner’s Healthcare Centre, poor patients and destitute can get free consultation, treatment, medicine and diagnosis such as x-ray etc. TB patients are given their daily doses through visits to their own places within the monastery. The ambulance is available anytime and patients who would need its service would only need to pay for the fuel. During large gatherings such as teachings of His Holiness, free clinical consultation is made available for all those who might need special attention or emergency service. Through this health clinic, the public is informed of the importance of hygiene and various simple preventive methods.
