The Health Centre
The Health Centre has 16 beds and is staffed 24 hours. There are 6 nurses that staff the Health Centre. A Doctor from nearby Landour Community Hospital comes to visit three mornings a week. There is a long association with the Landour Community Center (which is situated about a mile down the road) and the Health Centre staff work closely with the Doctors there. Staff and students are referred to specialists in the nearby town of Dehra Dun when the need arises.
