United Mission Hospital -Tansen, Nepal








The United Mission Hospital Tansen (UMHT) is located in Buhusaldanda, one kilometre up the "Mission" road from the Tansen bazaar.

Tansen, the district headquarters and commercial centre of Palpa District, is a pleasant town built on the side of Shrinagar hill. It lies in the middle hills of Nepal, at an altitude of 1400 metres, 300 kms west of Kathmandu, 125 kms from Pokhara and 80 kms from Bhairawa on the Indian border.

The population of Tansen swells when the local campus of the Tribhuvan University is in session. Although the United Mission Hospital Tansen is located in Palpa District, approximately 70% of its patients come from the surrounding nine districts, Western Nepal, and from nearby parts of North India.
