The hospital is one of only two hospitals in the Tarime District. Shirati Hospital has 150 beds which at times are shared by more than one patient. The majority of the local population has no health insurances and due to the extreme poverty of the area have little money for health care services. Shirati Hospital provides many medical services below the actual cost of the service. Many patient bills are written off as uncollectible.
Shirati Hospital provides a wide range of outpatient and inpatient services.
