The ARCH dispensary is equipped with a laboratory and a low cost diagnostic center at its campus in Dharampur. The low cost diagnostic center includes facilities for blood chemistry and sonography and is accessible to poor patients. This dispensary not only caters to poor patients in and around Dharampur, it is also a referral center for all patients referred by our trained village health workers and by other NGOs.

In the absence of rational low cost medical services for poor patients in this area, this center is gradually becoming a popular medical care center.  Daily, about 40-50 patients benefit from this service. In 2009 the total number of patients treated in Dharampur dispensary was about 6000. Laboratory investigations were done for about 4,000 and sonography for 150 patients.
