About JDH

About Map It is a history of long journey. It started its journey from a very small "Dispensary". In 1922 Jhargram was declared as a Sub-Division. In 1924, the Royal family of Jhargram established a Dispensary, namely "CHANDICHARAN CHARITABLE DISPENSARY" to pay homage to the Empire , Late Chandicharan Malladev in the centre of Jhargram town to serve the local people.

Primarily the dispensary was started in a hut. Later, about in 1932 AD the dispensary was reconstructed. After independence, Government took over the whole land & the dispensary. And in 1956 A.D, the old building was renovated & reconstructed to turn it as a Sub-Divisional Hospital.

In 2012, as a part of Government decision for establishing Jhargram Sub-Division into a District of West Bengal, this sub-division was declared as 'Jhargram Health District'. As a result on 11/01/2012, this hospital got the status of a "District Hospital".

Hon'ble chief Minister, Smt. Mamata Banerjee is so kind and empathetic for the people of Jangal Mahal that she considered to construct a Super Specialty Hospital for the people. A beautiful five storied building of Super Specialty Hospital was constructed whose surface area is about 80,000 sq. ft. Not only the building was constructed, all ultra modern medical equipments like CT scan, Ultrasonography, Digital X-ray, C-arm, Endoscopy, Laparoscopy and many more were added to provide most advance modern medical service to the people. Many other modern life saving facilities like "critical care unit (CCU)' Dialysis Unit, Sick Neonatal care unit(SNCU), and many more were also established in parallel.

On 11th February 2016, Hon'ble Chief Minister Smt. Mamata Banerjee inaugurated Jhargram Super Specialty Hospital. Subsequently existing District Hospita was merged with the Super Specialty Hospital. Some wards and facilities were re-distributed in these buildings. Last but not the least; our beloved CM has sanctioned 100 seat capacity GNM training school which is another milestone of Jhargram.
