Mrs Elizabeth M Bacon came to Lalitpur in November 1890 and opened a mission station attached with a small hospital and school under the Reformed Episcopal Mission, USA. Regular medical work was started in 1934 with a full-fledged hospital and was managed by dedicated expatriate missionaries for four decades. In 1973, The R.E Mission handed over the management of the hospital to EHA under which it continues to function. Since then, from a very small beginning, Harriet Benson Memorial Hospital continues in its path of services – a testimony of His enduring grace and faithfulness. The hospital selflessly serves it’s community through its services, Palliative Care Team and Community Outreach Programme in Lalitpur, despite earning just 20% of the salary they could achieve at a Government hospital.
