The main activities of SMF are :
1. The Siddhi Memorial Hospital ( SMH ), since 1997 a hospital that provides quality accessible healthcare services to the community of Bhaktapur, in particular to women and children. The hospital has an emergency room, 50 pediatric beds, a maternity unit and an outpatients department. This care is provided at a small fee to patients, however if people are unable to afford this they will be helped as well. The hospital sees around 125 patients per day.
2. The Siddhi Shaligram Briddhashram ( SSB ), a senior citizen home that provides care and services to elderly people in need since 2005. The mission of SSB is to help elderly people live peaceful, fulfilling and happy lives. SSB offers residential care to about 40 elders and day care facilities to about 100 elders per day. SSB aims to offer support and services to all elderly persons, irrespective of status, wealth, caste, religion, relationship, gender or ethnicity.
3. Community Support. Educating the community is the key to promoting good health according to SMF. Through various projects in the communities surrounding the hospital SMF educates citizens to increase the prevention of illnesses and the spread of viruses such as Hiv which causes aids. SMF also trains local people to act as first aiders and offers free medical checkups at health camps to reach those in need.
4. Research. SMF coordinates research projects to understand preventions and treatments for illnesses such as pneumonia and diarrhea.
