Chirayu National Hospital and Medical Institute is a major private hospital based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Operating out of centrally located and modern facilities, CNHMI provides best practice general and specialist medical services. CNHMI commenced its operation in December 2013, offering both out-patient services and in-patient services. CNHMI is owned by corporate investors together with a number of consultant doctors practicing at the hospital. The objective of the founders was to provide high quality and affordable medical care by leveraging skills of highly trained Nepalese consultants with access to state of the art equipment and technology, which before the establishment of CNHMI, was available on few hospitals in Nepal but was out of reach from most of the citizens.
