In the late 1950s, when Nepal opened its doors to the outside world, Dr. Stanley and Raylene Sturges and their children were the first Seventh-day Adventist medical missionaries to Nepal. They asked King Mahendra where they could be used the most and they were sent to the village of Banepa, 26 km east of Kathmandu. With nowhere to live and no church support structure in place, they accepted the offer of a local elder to live in his home. They lived with this Nepali family for almost two years. (The Nepali elder's grandson would later be the Assistant Mayor of Banepa and a supporter of the hospital). The Sturgeses began with just a small one-room clinic, caring for the immediate and urgent medical needs of the community. By 1960, they expanded into a 20-bed hospital. At that time, Scheer Memorial Hospital was the only hospital serving the one-half million people of Kavre District. Mr. Clifford C. Scheer, as a memorial to his parents, Charles J. and Carolyn Scheer, donated most of the money needed to build the hospital. Funding for equipment, room furnishings, and medical supply necessities came from CARE and the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Since then and with the continued volunteer and financial assistance of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Scheer Memorial Adventist Hospital has evolved into a three-story facility licensed for 150-beds, that provides a full range of outpatient and inpatient services.
