Kalinga Hospital - A super star hospital concept was conceived by NRI from Odisha (Orissa) in around 1989. That hospital is none other than Kalinga Hospital. Out patient services at Kalinga Hospital started in February 1997 and in August 1998, the hospital with 175 beds was fully operational.
In the past year the hospital is running with full occupancy. Some of the days they are refusing patients for admission to the hospital. The Hospital Corporation of Odisha (Orissa) (HCO) is making its best effort for expansion of beds at Kalinga Hospital as well as keeping an eye to improve the patient care. Kalinga Hospital gets all the patients from other hospitals as well as other nursing homes in around Cuttack and Bhubaneswar area. The open heart surgery and angioplasty results are as good as any hospital in the country. Neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, urologist perform very complex surgical procedures with great success. Cardiology, nephrology and intensive care services are the busiest and undoubtedly the best department in the state. At Kalinga Hospital, 750 cleft lip and palate surgery has been done with collaboration of Smile Train Program of the World.
