Mission Statement of the Hospital
Keeping in mind the fine pledges in the Tibetan Delek Hospital mission statement, we at Sakya Hospital have borrowed from its goodness in order to frame our own. We feel that having such a mission statement will direct us towards a higher, more selfless goal for the greater good by serving as a guiding principle for us as we serve the community.
“We at the Sakya Hospital aim to provide affordable healthcare to the best of our abilities and resources, to each and everyone who approaches us regardless of their race, or religion, their social or financial status.
Staff members should bear this mission statement in mind everyday of their work at the hospital, and let it become a part of their work ethic to look past social barriers and instead incorporate politeness, respect, patience and compassion into their service. It is imperative that staff members take this mission statement to heart while they are at work.

Our Humble Activities
