The hospital will be named Bharatpur Coronavirus Special Hospital and will possess 50 normal beds in addition to a 10-bed high dependency unit and another 10-bed intensive care unit.

Bharatpur Metropolitan City, Chitwan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Chitwan Industry Association and District Coordination Committee will work together in managing the equipment and other materials for the hospital. Bharatpur Cancer Hospital is donating 20 ICU beds and eight ventilators.
