In the meantime, Dr. Ram Shrestha, founder of the hospital, took over the functions of Vice Chancellor of Kathmandu University and bequeathed the management of the hospital to a director and an administrative director under the responsibility of an administration council, composed of delegates of the local community, the Dhulikhel Health Service Association and NepaliMed International.
But the ambitious wish to provide access to modern and affordable medical treatment for his fellow Nepalese people was not forgotten. After discussing the matter with his friends he finally returned to Nepal. The farmers of his village offered their rice fields for the construction of the hospital. The first brick was laid in 1994 and in 1996 the building was inaugurated by the king and queen of Nepal.
The Dhulikhel Hospital was the dream come true for a Nepalese boy, who was traumatized by the passing of his mother due to the lack of medical care. He therefore decides to become a doctor and with a lot of courage and ambition he completes his studies at a university in Austria. He stayed there for another 15 years, married a local woman and became the head of the surgical department at the Feldkirch Hospital.
