EMI is privileged to work with Duncan Hospital again. Last year we worked with Duncan Hospital in Bihar, India to develop a resilience strategy for the flood issues in the region. This year we are excited to help them with the design of a nursing college, and the student accommodation for it. These additions will also be part of a masterplan design of the medical campus, as the hospital looks ahead to expand and rebuild.

Project Scope

Located at the border of India and Nepal, the Duncan Hospital serves the community with a 200 bed multi-specialty facility. Their nurses training programme has been an important part of the hospital. As they plan to expand the college to train 300 students, they need academic and housing buildings to meet the requirements.

EMI will assist Duncan Hospital with the designs of the new buildings. A team of 6-8 people will travel to Raxaul, Bihar to spend a week at the campus. We hope to fully understand the needs of the nursing college, as we analyse the existing buildings, and meet with the hospital staff. Along with the concept architectural design of the nursing college, we also aim to help the hospital put together a masterplan of the hospital that shows a phased redevelopment in line with the flood resilience strategy that has been previously planned.

We know God has been instrumental in the work of this hospital, and that He continues to use their staff to serve. If you can offer your skills to help Duncan Hospital on this project, please consider the volunteer opportunities below.
