TUTH Blood Center after Nepal earthquake

Just over one year since it opened, the Kathmandu blood bank centre for the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH), has been put to the test with the recent earthquakes in Nepal.

The facility has the capacity to supply 75% of the medical facilities & hospitals of Kathmandu Valley.

The blood center is working 24/7 in full swing to support injured ones. The building structure withstood the earthquake and subsequent aftershocks.

The state-of-the-art facility features a component separator, enabling blood packs to be divided according to requirement, allowing more people to be treated and supporting the work of nearby hospitals.

Designed by Mukta Dinwiddie MacLaren to withstand an impact of up to 8.4 on the Richter scale, we are pleased to report the facility continues to function as it was intended and has been a vital support in this time of crisis.
