Tinplate Hospital


This is one of the oldest hospitals in Jamshedpur, started in the early 1940's. It started off as a very small first-aid post/dispensary. Slowly it metamorphised into a 60 bedded hospital in 1980 with 8 doctors; and now it is a 175 bedded hospital with 31 doctors and 139 supporting staff. All specialties are covered.


We are located in Golmuri area of Jamshedpur which is half way between the two big areas of Tata Steel and Tata Engineering (Telco). We are approximately 4 kms away from the Tatanagar Railway Station, the nearest railway station.


Management Initiative

The Tinplate Hospital started as a captive hospital only for the employees and the families of the Tinplate Company.In 1998, after a massive downsizing from 5500 employees to 1760 employees,the Company management had to rethink whether they needed such a large hospital. Due to the initiative of several doctors, the management decided to convert the Hospital into a 'Profit Centre' and open it to Corporate clientele. A Tinplate Medical Council was formed to oversee the administrative and policy-making functions. Nineteen other companies decided to make the Tinplate Hospital their referral hospital like Timken India, Tata Robins Fraser, B.O.C, Tata Ryerson, Tata Electric, Lafarge, M.T.M.H., State Bank Of India, Tata Consultancy Services, Larsen & Toubro, N.M.L., A.D.M.H, INCAB, ISWP, Uranium Corporation of India, DVC, Jamipol, Usha Martin & Medicare.


In 1999, after some success in revenue earings, it was decided to expand the hospital services to include an Intensive Care Unit, Trauma Centre and Blood Bank. A charitable trust was formed. It was called Dr.T.C.John Memorial Charitable Foundation. Under the aegis of this Trust, we received a grant of Rs 65 lakhs from the Timken Foundation, USA to construct an Intensive Care Unit and Rs 35 lakhs from Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, Mumbai to construct a Trauma Centre. Both have been constructed and are operational.
